Portland area physician describes hormone replacement therapy

Beautiful senior couple

The signs of aging are not always visible. Both men and women experience changes in their hormones over time. When levels of specific hormones decline, patients may begin to notice changes in the way they feel. They may notice changes in their sexual function and can even be at risk for depression and anxiety. With HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), patients can undergo testing to determine which hormone levels are low and take the appropriate doses, which allow them to feel better and enjoy a better quality of life.

Many women who go through menopause may consider hormone replacement therapy when they are dealing with all the problems that can come with it, including hot flashes and sexual concerns. Their estrogen and progesterone levels can drop, and can cause problems such as:

  • Changes in menstruation
  • Hot flashes
  • Thinning hair
  • Night sweats
  • Changes in mood
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Noticeable accumulation of fat in the abdomen
  • Problems sleeping
  • Lowered concentration and memory

Dr. Maddox of Thrive provides a number of different hormone replacement therapies to assist patients in feeling better and balancing their hormones to reduce risks of other medical conditions.

Hormone replacement therapy can help in providing relief from the symptoms of menopause, and can also prevent, or treat, osteoporosis. Additionally, it can improve muscle function, reduce the risk of heart attacks and failure, and can protect against brain aneurysms. Patients who are undergoing hormone replacement therapy should have their dose figured on an individual basis depending on their hormone levels, and should undergo an annual evaluation to check changes in hormones before, during, and after menopause.

If you live in the Portland area and want to find out if hormone replacement therapy can assist you in rejuvenating your body and the way you feel, contact Dr. Maddox of Thrive today to schedule a consultation visit and thorough examination. He happily accepts new patients to his state-of-the-art practice and is ready to assist you in learning more about hormone replacement therapy and the benefits it can provide.
