Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy restores hormone imbalances in your body that can lead to weight gain, chronic fatigue, and sluggishness. When combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, hormone replacement therapy can help facilitate proper weight management and improve your overall health.

If you’re struggling to lose weight, you may have low testosterone. As you age, your body naturally decreases its production of testosterone, which plays a crucial role in your weight, energy levels, mood, and ability to concentrate.

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?

Most patients notice a decrease in testosterone levels in their thirties or forties, though hormone imbalances can develop at any time. Some of the most common low testosterone symptoms to watch out for include:

  • Fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Muscle loss
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Poor concentration

Low testosterone makes it difficult to find the energy to exercise and stay active. Hormone replacement therapy can increase these levels to help you look and feel your best.

How is hormone replacement therapy administered?

The type of hormone replacement therapy that the team recommends depends on your unique symptoms and hormone levels. There are several hormone replacement options available:

Injections

Hormones like testosterone can be injected directly into your muscles, allowing your body to slowly absorb it into the bloodstream.

Implants

A testosterone implant can help improve hormone imbalances as small pellets in your soft tissues.

Transdermal patch

A transdermal patch sits on top of your skin, typically on your arm, to release testosterone.

Mouth patch

Testosterone mouth patches are applied to your gums, directly next to your two front teeth, twice a day. These small tablets release testosterone into your bloodstream through your oral tissues.

Gels

Testosterone gels are absorbed through the skin when applied once a day. Some gels even come in a pump that delivers the exact amount of testosterone prescribed by your doctor.

While testosterone is available in pill form, it’s believed to be unhealthy for the liver. Other hormones, like estrogen, can be delivered orally.

Hormone replacement therapy can increase your energy levels, help you lose weight, and more. For more information, call Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness or book an appointment online.
