In addition to Metagenics, the evaluation of hormones can determine a plan to survive and thrive with hormonal deficiency associated with aging. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy addresses women in perimenopause as well as men with decreasing testosterone levels.
For women in perimenopause, a complete physical including a thyroid check, blood sugar test and vitamin D3 test are recommended. These tests can rule out non-hormonal factors that are causing perimenopausal symptoms. The hormone check will measure estrogen, progesterone, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). The FSH and LH help control the menstrual cycle and the production of eggs. Based on test results, a customized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program can be created specifically to address symptoms to maximize benefits and relief.
For aging men, decreasing testosterone results in decreased muscle strength and sexual response including impotence. Many men see an increase in body mass and composition. The importance of testosterone cannot be understated; it has been shown to prevent osteoporosis, arthritis and depressed mood, to improve memory and protect against cardiovascular disease in both men and women.
To determine testosterone levels, extensive blood tests are conducted to determine a “baseline” of hormone levels and potentially identify other medical conditions. Treatment programs include testosterone replenishment supervised by medical professionals to continually monitor progress and make adjustments for maximum results.
