Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) not only helps women manage menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleep problems, mood swings, weight gain and vaginal dryness, it can also help reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. HRT is successful in diminishing menopausal symptoms in women by adjusting estrogen and/or progesterone hormones to ideal levels. Many women report feeling energized and more youthful feeling while on HRT, including an increased libido. Men can also benefit from hormone replacement therapy. In fact, over 2 million men in the United states are being treated with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Low testosterone in men can significantly diminish a man’s strength, endurance, cause weight gain and even bone loss. If menopausal symptoms or low testosterone levels are affecting your quality of life, there are effective medical solutions. However, it’s important to be scientifically tested and treated by a qualified physician.
