Bioidentical Hormone Therapy: Jacksonville FL

bio-hormones

The results of your Executive Health Evaluation will give our physician a snapshot of your physiology and particular need for hormonal optimization. From puberty through mid-life, your body’s genetic programming manages your metabolism and endocrine system. However, important hormone levels begin to decrease with age; and much of what we consider to be aging is a direct result of these diminished levels. An important goal at Cenegenics® Jacksonville is to restore your body’s balance by using bioidentical hormone therapy to supplement the natural production of hormones. When your system is balanced, it reduces the adverse effects of aging and lowers your risk of degenerative diseases.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

During your evaluation review at Cenegenics® Jacksonville, hormone replacement therapy will be discussed and prescribed as viable intervention to restore and maintain metabolic and endocrine functions at the upper end of the normal range. Some primary functions that impact your opportunity for a healthy and vigorous life include:

  • Testosterone:
    This important hormone is produced in the testes, ovaries and adrenal glands to enhance your libido, sense of well-being, energy levels, muscle development and bone strength.
  • Estrogen:
    Produced in the adrenal glands, body fat and ovaries, estrogen lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, incontinence and Alzheimer’s. In addition, sensory function, digestion, emotional well-being, skin tone, libido, cognitive acuity and mood are enhanced by proper estrogen levels.
  • DHEA:
    A protein builder and repairer, DHEA is produced by the adrenal glands as a precursor to testosterone, estrogens and androgens. Once therapy begins, follow-up tests for DHEA and other markers must be monitored for safety and effectiveness.
  • Progesterone:
    Helps to stimulate bone building and regulates the hormonal balance to improve sense of well-being, brain function and mood.
  • Cortisol:
    Formed in the adrenal glands, cortisol influences metabolism and glucose balance to help regulate blood pressure, metabolism and glucose balance in both men and women.
  • Thyroid:
    Hormone that is produced in the thyroid to monitor and regulate the metabolic rate of every cell.
  • HGH:
    Produced by the pituitary gland, this hormone stimulates body tissue growth, skin hydration, bone and muscle growth, and regulates the metabolism and energy levels. Only prescribed when testing reveals an adult deficiency.

 

Each hormone has a specific job but overlaps the others to produce a synergistic effect. As we grow older, this complex balance is disrupted by diminished hormone levels and until recently has been accepted as signs of aging. Today, we know that age management often requires the use of bioidentical hormone therapy to restore and maintain a healthy hormonal balance in your body.
