As we age, our hormones will naturally decrease, affecting both men and women. For women, this is called menopause, and for men, andropause. Luckily, both are treatable with hormonal replacement therapy (HRT).
As women age, the production of hormones, and more specifically estrogen, declines. When the bodies natural hormones begin to decline, menopause and its symptoms begin. Once we have a better understanding of your current hormone levels, we can better determine our next steps.
For men, the primary hormone to keep a close eye on is testosterone. As testosterone levels decline, men suffer from symptoms such as weight gain, insomnia, low libido, and erectile dysfunction, among others.
During your appointment at Harlem Pharmacy, we will discuss your options to determine whether or not hormone replacement is right for you. If you’re interested in Hormone Replacement or would like to schedule your consultation, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (706)396-3910.
