Hormone management

Hormone management

Hormones are the messengers of your body. They travel to tissues and organs in the bloodstream and work overtime to complete certain processes or tasks. Several glands, organs, and tissues make and release hormones that make up your endocrine system. Hormones are essential for your health and your life.

Hormones control different body processes, including:

  • Metabolism
  • Homeostasis (internal balance like blood pressure and blood sugar, water, electrolyte balance, and body temperature.
  • Development and growth
  • Sexual function
  • Reproduction
  • Sleep-wake cycle
  • Moods

 

A few hormones go a long way. However, minor changes in hormone levels can cause significant changes to your body and lead to conditions that require treatment.

Hormone management is medical care that regulates your hormone levels and reduces symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Hormone management is a treatment that adds, blocks, or removes hormones for certain conditions, such as menopause; hormone therapy means hormones are given to adjust low hormone levels. 

Menopause indicates the end of menstrual cycles. Usually, after you have gone 12 months without a menstrual period, you are considered to have gone through menopause. Menopause often occurs in your 40s or 50s. It is a natural biological process. Primary physical symptoms include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Chills
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep problems
  • Weight gain
  • Slowing metabolism
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Mood changes
  • Loss of breast fulness
