What is hormone therapy?
Hormone therapy is a highly customized medical treatment to restore your hormonal balances. Your body produces a variety of hormones that control everything from your metabolism and ability to regulate your temperature to your sex drive and reproductive health. When you have a hormonal deficiency or imbalance, you may experience disruptive symptoms.
Hormone therapy replenishes your hormone levels, reduces your symptoms, and restores your overall health.
What are the signs of a hormone deficiency?
Both men and women can experience hormone deficiencies, especially as they age. Some of the common symptoms of hormonal imbalances and deficiencies include:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Weight gain
- Muscle mass loss
- Moodiness and irritability
- Libido loss
- Decreased sexual performance
- Anxiety and depression
You may assume that these symptoms are due to aging, but in many cases, Dr. King at Simple Primary Care Solutions can provide hormone therapy to restore your health and help you lead an active and fulfilling life.
How is a hormone imbalance diagnosed?
Dr. King uses a comprehensive exam and blood tests to diagnose a hormonal imbalance. He talks to you about your symptoms, overall wellness, and lifestyle and orders blood tests to measure your hormone levels. Simple Primary Care Solutions offers convenient in-office lab services, so you don’t have to make multiple appointments.
What should I expect during hormone therapy?
After Dr. King diagnoses and identifies your specific hormonal imbalance or deficiency, he works with a specialized compounding pharmacy that custom makes hormone pellets to replace the particular hormones your body needs. The pellets are bioidentical, mimic the actual molecular structure of your own hormones and are made from plant-based sources.
When your hormone pellets are ready, Dr. King numbs your skin and pushes the pellets into the subdermal tissue of your upper buttock. The pellets slowly release the hormones, and over the coming weeks and months, your symptoms should subside.
Dr. King will monitor your treatment via blood work and symptomatically. Our goal is to ensure you get the optimal results necessary to restore your health, energy levels, sexual health, and overall vitality. Once your hormonal balance is restored, Dr. King provides additional pellet injections every three to four months for women and every six months for men.
