Improve your health and mood with expert hormone replacement therapy in Baton Rouge LA.
While the most stereotypical symptoms of menopause are probably hot flashes and mood swings, these are actually not the worst of the symptoms you may experience. Problems like insomnia, low sex drive, vaginal dryness, fatigue, and memory loss can affect your personal and professional life too. The decline in estrogen production that occurs at menopause can also put your overall health in jeopardy. The good news is Renew Youth™ can relieve your menopause symptoms and help preserve your health as you age with safe and effective hormone replacement therapy in Baton Rouge LA.
Balancing Your Hormones
Our doctors approach hormone replacement therapy in Baton Rouge LA as a nuanced effort to restore balance to all your vital hormones, not just a one-size-fits-all supplement of any particular hormone. This balanced approach provides effective relief for your menopause symptoms, which are often caused by a deficiency in more than one hormone. Based on the results of detailed lab testing, and on your description of your symptoms, our experienced doctors will create a personalized menopause treatment plan including the specific dosages of hormones you need to feel your best. Our treatment plans address the following vital female hormones:
Estrogen: Estrogen is of course the most important female hormone and it is very important to have healthy estrogen levels. We offer a variety of different ways for you to get the estrogen you need, including estrogen replacement, which will deliver estrogen to every system in the body, or topical estrogen creams to target specific symptoms like aging skin or vaginal dryness.
Progesterone: Estrogen is a growth-promoting hormone. Progesterone is necessary to control and moderate this growth and protect against breast cancer. We always prescribe progesterone and estrogen together, and we never use synthetic versions of these hormones. Synthetics have been linked to adverse treatment outcomes including cancer.
Testosterone: Women don’t need a lot of testosterone, but the small amount of this hormone you do need has a big impact. At Renew Youth™, we always test for low testosterone and then give you the exact amount you need to fuel your sex drive, stabilize your mood, and keep your energy levels up.
Thyroid: Thyroid imbalance can cause or worsen many common menopause symptoms like fatigue, insomnia, and weight gain. We replace the correct forms of the hormone to get your body functioning its best.
DHEA: Healthy levels of DHEA are necessary to prevent negative impacts on testosterone and estrogen levels. While it is possible to get DHEA as an over-the-counter supplement, this may not provide the correct dose for your unique body chemistry. The correct way to supplement DHEA is as part of your hormone replacement therapy in Baton Rouge LA.
Oxytocin: Women suffering from low sex drive may benefit from oxytocin treatment because this hormone plays a huge role in arousal and orgasm.
