Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

hormone-replacement-therapyHormone replacement therapy has become a prevalent method of treating a wide range of hormonal disorders including deficiencies in testosterone, estrogen (estrone, estradiol, and estriol), progesterone, DHEA, HGH, and many other hormones.

Synthetic hormones are commonly prescribed to treat a wide range of hormone disorders and problems. The human body has dozens of hormones that are involved in many different biological purposes.

Hormone replacement therapy is becoming more popular

As hormone replacement therapy has been widely publicized as being potentially dangerous, many men and women have discontinued conventional hormone replacement therapy treatments. However, even the studies that have determined hormone replacement therapy to be dangerous in some cases have been skewed. For instance, many of the studies on women were limited to women with a high average age, which put them at a higher risk of developing adverse health problems regardless of the impact of the hormone treatments.

Drug companies time developing synthetic hormones because chemical derivatives of natural hormones can be patented as a drug. Also, the type of delivery method can be patented, and as a result many drug companies have begun producing hormones using unique delivery methods.

Hormones are readily available at our compounding pharmacy

For people who are suffering from age related hormone disorders,  hormone replacement therapy can be a life changing treatment that can safely reduce symptoms without dangerous side effects. Hormones can be created at The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills, and in modern times these hormones are produced in laboratories which are capable of producing them safely. The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills can create hormone replacement therapy treatments based on the direction of a physician, and the dosage and method of administration can be carefully controlled as well. A wide variety of different types of dosage forms can be created including gels, creams, oral capsules, and many others, depending on the preferences of the patient.

The problems associated with hormone decline in both men and women can be significant. Women may begin to experience life altering symptoms when they begin to reach perimenopause, and their symptoms may continue for several years as they go through menopause. The same goes for men; most men start to experience the effects of testosterone decline as they begin to age, and research has now shown that men go through a male version of menopause called andropause where they experience some of the same symptoms that women experience. As a result, hormone replacement therapy is a critical treatment for both men and women who are experiencing hormone declines or who need a hormone treatment for other health issues as well. It is becoming much more popular now that the public is aware of its effectiveness and safety.
