Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been widely used for a number of years to help ease the symptoms of the menopause for women. It was also thought to offer additional health benefits, including reducing the risk of heart disease and even possibly dementia.
Recent clinical trials now indicate that hormone therapy may actually have greater benefit than medical practitioners initially thought.
Hormone Therapy: Helping You Live ‘Better’?
The menopause, and the male equivalent (known as the andropause) brings with it a number of symptoms that can have a detrimental impact. Of course, some people sail through this period of their lives with little in the way of problems, but for others, the symptoms can really hinder quality of life.
Hot flushes and night sweating tends to affect both women and men, as do mood swings, increased irritability and reduced sex drive. In some men, erectile dysfunction can also occur.
If this sounds like you, hormone therapy may be the solution to helping you lead a more ‘normal’, happier life.
Who Does it Benefit?
Of course, it’s not for everyone, but if you fall into the following categories, it’s likely you’ll experience significant benefit from hormone therapy.
- Have reduced bone mass and other treatments aren’t working
- Are experiencing hot flushes and significant sweating
- Have reduced libido or erectile problems
- Are struggling to manage mood swings
…then it’s a good idea to arrange an appointment with an anti-aging specialist to discuss your options.
Focusing on the Future
The most important thing is to view your options with an eye firmly fixed on the future. Many doctors will focus solely on living longer, but actually, the most important thing is to ensure greater quality of life, and to make sure that you live ‘better’.
