Hormone Replacement

What are hormones?

Hormones are chemicals produced by the glands that make up your endocrine system and are responsible for directing the actions of many vital body functions. Your hormones are responsible for controlling:

  • Metabolism
  • Mood
  • Sleep
  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature
  • Reproduction
  • Libido

Your hormones may be tiny, but any changes in production can affect how your body works and how you feel. 

Hormonal changes can occur at any time. However, both men and women experience a decrease in their sex hormones, including testosterone and estrogen, as they get older. A decrease in these hormones can lead to metabolic changes that affect body composition, mood, and libido, and may also increase your risk of chronic health conditions such as heart disease and osteoporosis.

At Ageless San Diego, the anti-aging experts offer hormone replacement options to restore your levels and reverse these metabolic changes. 

Am I a good candidate for hormone replacement?

The team at Ageless San Diego determines if you’re a good candidate for hormone replacement during your consultation. 

You should consider scheduling an appointment with the anti-aging team if you’re experiencing the signs and symptoms associated with a decrease in sex hormones, which may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Low libido
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Hair loss

To determine if your hormones are responsible for your symptoms, the team reviews your health concerns and medical history and conducts a physical exam. The team also performs diagnostic tests to assess your hormone levels.

What are my hormone replacement options?

To restore metabolic function for both men and women, the team at Ageless San Diego uses bioidentical hormone replacement, which is a more natural hormone replacement option created from yams or soy that has the same chemical structure and function as the hormones produced by your body. The team also offers testosterone hormone replacement therapy.

To improve your metabolism and energy levels, Ageless San Diego also provides nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), which is a coenzyme that plays a vital role in mitochondria function. Research indicates that supplementation with NAD+ may help rejuvenate aged stem cells in your gut. Stem cells serve as your body’s repair system and have the ability to transform themselves into specialized cells, such as bone, muscle, and brain cells.
