Hormone Disorders

In the last 30 years, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been growing in popularity with medical science and patients alike. Each year, thousands of patients are successfully and safely treated with HRT.

 

HRT treats hormone imbalance and its symptoms. Hormones circulate throughout the body by attaching to target sites which alter the function of tissue and cells.  The primary glands/organs affected by hormones include:

 

 

  • Pituitary gland
  • Thyroid
  • Parathyroid
  • Adrenal glands
  • Pancreas
  • Ovaries
  • Testes

 

 

These hormones, glands and organs provide the basic homeostatic and normal physiological function of the body including functions such as:

 

 

  • Release of additional hormones
  • Muscle growth and development
  • Cellular repair
  • Body temperature regulation
  • Hunger and thirst
  • Reproductive function
  • Sleeping patters (circadian rhythm)
  • Mood
  • GI function
  • Respiratory function
  • Circulatory system

 

 

The primary goal of HRT is to optimize the body’s function, control symptoms, slow aging, and enhance lifestyle/quality of life.
