Hormone Replacement Therapy Questions and Answers

Beneath the surface of our bodies, there is an entire network of communication and industry between your organs, fluids, cells, and spine that works to keep us alive and thriving. Our hormones are essential workers in this network, overseeing nearly every process in our body to ensure it is functioning correctly. However, when our hormones are depleted or imbalanced, these our bodies do not perform as they should, and weight gain is often an unfortunate consequence of that dysfunction! If you have found that no matter what you do, you just keep gaining weight, you may suffer from low hormone levels. Don’t worry, though! At Elixir Aesthetics, we have an excellent solution for you. We offer hormone replacement therapy at affordable costs to anyone that suffers from hormonal imbalance!

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is an FDA-approved treatment to restore hormonal balance in men and women whose hormonal levels have decreased due to aging, menopause, diabetes, hypogonadism, and several other causes. For women, hormone replacement therapy typically deals with estrogen and progestogen hormones. The estrogen hormone is instrumental in regulating the female metabolic system, while the progestogen hormone plays a crucial role in female ovulation cycles. For men, hormone replacement therapy typically focuses on testosterone levels, which helps regulate bone density, libido, muscle mass, production of red blood cells, sperm production, strength, and weight gain.

How can hormone replacement therapy help me to lose weight?

Your body relies on chemical messengers, which is a term that is often colloquially used to describe the way that hormones work throughout your body. These chemical messengers are secreted by glands that are situated throughout your body, and they move through the bloodstream or in fluids around cells looking for protein receptors within or on the surface of cells to bind to for the purpose of regulating cell activity. In doing so, hormones regulate a litany of different functions in your body, including appetite, growth, metabolism, and mood. When your body does not generate enough hormones or has a hormonal imbalance, it throws those functions out of whack. For example, when you do not produce enough estrogen, it affects your metabolism by causing it to store extra fat cells. Likewise, low testosterone levels promote excess fat storage and higher levels of inflammation throughout the body.

In order to combat low hormonal levels or hormonal imbalance, hormone replacement therapy provides patients with a boost in the hormones that they lack through either synthetic or human-made versions of those hormones. Hormone replacement therapy can be administered in various forms, such as creams, gels, pellets, skin patches, or tablets. With this hormonal boost, the patient’s metabolism and mood are restored to their proper function, enabling the patient to lose weight more effectively without their body working against them.

What can I expect from hormone replacement therapy?

Before any hormone replacement therapy can safely be administered to a patient, initial consultation with the providing physician must take place. During this initial consultation, you and the specialist will discuss your medical history to ensure that you will not experience any complications with hormone replacement treatment. If there are no contraindications in your case, the discussion will then move to your personal goals for therapy and towards personalizing a treatment plan.

Your treatment will involve a regimen for taking the hormone replacement in your preferred form, whether that is a tablet, patch, gel, or pellet, including when and how often you take or apply it. How often and when you take the hormone replacement will depend on the form that you prefer treatment to come in. It may take a couple of weeks before you start noticing results, but the results are long-lasting! Hormone replacement therapy is also helpful for depression, insomnia, mental clarity, a loss of libido, and other hormonal imbalance symptoms.
