Bioidentical Hormones for Women
Aspen Colorado Bioidentical Hormones Specialist, Julian Gershon, Jr., D.O. treats women dealing with the effects of aging, thyroid disorders, perimenopause and menopause, and other conditions that stem from imbalanced hormones. Because of the way that your body’s hormones are connected with your other bodily functions, it is important to work with medical practitioners like the experts at Aspen Institute for Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine who understand the complexity of the hormone system.
Common Conditions Treated with Bioidentical Hormones
Perimenopause is the time when a woman’s body transitions from having a menstrual cycle to no longer menstruating. During this natural transition, the body undergoes biological changes resulting from declining ovarian hormone production. This causes a woman’s menstrual cycle to become irregular and varied, and it diminishes her fertility. Perimenopause normally lasts for several years and its course is impossible to predict.
- Common symptoms of perimenopause women experience:
- Hot Flashes
- Irregular Menstrual Periods
- Mood Swings
- Weight Gain
Menopause is a natural, gradual process that occurs when a woman’s ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, and her lifetime supply of eggs becomes depleted. Dr. Gershon works in partnership with you to determine the exact amounts of hormones needed for your body and customizes the treatments to your unique menopausal needs. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy remains an effective treatment option for relieving menopausal symptoms.
- Common symptoms of menopause women experience:
- Heart Palpitations
- Loss of Libido
- Night Sweats
Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism
The thyroid influences most of your body’s metabolic processes through the hormones that it produces. When the thyroid does not produce enough of the thyroid hormones, the thyroid condition hypothyroidism occurs. When the thyroid produces too much of the thyroid hormone you experience the health condition known as hyperthyroidism. The most common thyroid problems involve the over or under production of thyroid hormones.
