BHRT & Hormone Health & Age Management Medicine
Why Health Fit M.D. for Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?
Are you experiencing decreased energy, fatigue,
brain fog, lack of motivation, difficulty sleeping, hot flashes, night sweats, decreased results from
exercise, weight gain, and problems with intimacy and sexual health? Have you
been to the doctor only to have them run tests and tell you that you’re “within
normal limits”? Even worse, maybe the doctor prescribes an anti-depressant, a
sleep aid, a pain medication, or other medications. These may offer short-term
relief of symptoms but usually don’t address the root cause, often have unwanted side effects, and sometimes can make you feel even worse.

The Difference Between Age Management and Anti-Aging
Anti-Aging Medicine & Age Management Medicine
Anti-Aging Medicine struggles to define itself. Often labeled as pseudo-science, the term “anti-aging” was open to a range of definitions. Articles were published in The New York Times
and Scientific American
portraying anti-aging medicine as a foolish quest for the ethereal Fountain of Youth. Advertisers were quick to exploit the term anti-aging while many physicians and scientists became skeptical about this new specialty. Although extending life is certainly a sought-after result, current research still bears out that there is no medication or intervention currently available that guarantees longer life for human beings.Rather than the term Anti-aging Medicine, “Age Management Medicine” is a designation that has been advanced by leading practitioners in the field. The term more accurately reflects what the movement is attempting to accomplish, which is to improve the quality of life and overall health of humans as we age. Although on one hand, it will likely take years of research to show that certain treatments actually prolong life in our species, on the other hand it's evident that Age Management Medicine improves the quality and vigor of life and that it could, to some degree, extend life. Age Management Medicine doesn't wait for disease and degenerative processes to injure us, but proactively seeks to slow the unhealthy processes of aging before their onset.

Hormone Replacement Therapy
for Menopause in Gulfport, MS
is the end of a woman's menstrual cycle. Menopause onset is usually during a
woman’s 40s or 50s, when they have depleted their finite quantity of eggs
through ovulation. This results in estrogen (oestrogen) levels dropping and the
cessation of menstruation.
Menopause may occur naturally or via certain medical procedures and is a part
of every woman's life at some point; however, many menopause treatments exist
to reduce, mitigate, and help women with complications associated with the
transition and life after menopause.

are the Symptoms of Menopause?
Many common menopause symptoms begin
prior to menopause. Another term for this period is perimenopause, which
may start months or years before actual menopause. Every woman is different,
but typical menopause and perimenopause symptoms include:
flashes (Hot Flushes)
gain (Menopausal Weight Gain)
women don’t begin menopause immediately after their last menstrual cycle. More
commonly, women undergo a gradual decrease in the number and frequency of
periods as they transition into menopause. Menopause symptoms typically
increase in number and severity during this perimenopausal period. Twelve
months after a woman’s last period, menopause officially begins.
In most cases, menopause
occurs naturally for women. A decrease in hormone production, mostly
of estrogen (oestrogen)and progesterone are the biochemical
indicators of this change. Menstruation and fertility are regulated by these
hormones. Low levels cause menopausal symptoms to emerge and bring menstruation
to an end.Other causes of menopause are:
- Radiation Therapy
- Ovarian Insufficiency
Menopause begins at many different ages, but most women experience it between
the ages of 40 and 50.
may be part of the natural aging process for women, but it’s often difficult to
tolerate uncomfortable, inconvenient, and unhealthy side-effects and symptoms
that result from it. Menopause treatments have been created to aid menopausal
women in more comfortably avoiding problems like hot flashes (hot flushes), low
libido or sex drive, and weight gain. A list of some of these types of
treatments for menopause includes:
Hormone Replacement Therapy
(Professional, Lifestyle, and/or Nutrition)|
menopause treatment varies greatly from one woman to the next. Each woman has a
different genetic makeup, medical history, and personal preferences. Also,
menopause treatments vary in cost and coverage depending on providers,
insurance companies, state and federal laws. The best menopause treatment is
the one that you have researched thoroughly and consulted with your trained
physician about. Get More Info Here.Click here for More Info on Testosterone Treatment Therapy
Thyroid Treatment And Hypothyroidism In The Gulfport Biloxi Area
The human endocrine system produces a multitude of
hormones that perform crucial functions in your body. One of the most important
is the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
. TSH is a precursor hormone
that is created in the pituitary gland. This means TSH production is essential in order for
the thyroid gland to release its hormones thyroxin (T4) and triiodothyronine
(T3). It is also essential that the body have enough free T3 and free T4
If you'd like to know more
about TSH, please call (228) 206-0542 or click here to book an appointment now.
TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 Levels
Optimal levels of TSH, free T3 and free T4
are crucial for thyroid health
and overall wellness. In
addition, checking reverse free T3 levels and thyroid antibodies can be
included in a comprehensive thyroid exam. Both high TSH levels
can cause serious health problems.
TSH, T3 and T4 imbalance can cause serious
health problems and numerous symptoms. Most of these symptoms are signs
of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
- Weight Gain
- Hair loss
- Memory loss
- Cold Intolerance
- Joint Pain / Arthritis
- Dry, Coarse Hair
- Brittle Nails
Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy
Optimizing TSH, T3 and T4 levels involves supplementing your
natural thyroid production. This is accomplished most effectively with bioidentical hormone replacement
therapy or BHRT
. BHRT utilizes both free T3 and free T4 that are chemically identical
to what your body produces to naturally
thyroid function and hormone levels.
If you're experiencing some or many of these seemingly unrelated symptoms, you may be suffering from TSH, T3 or T4
Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can make life uncomfortable and extremely difficult in addition to increasing risk of further age-related illness, so it's
of the utmost importance that you have all your thyroid hormone levels checked. If you're interested in a thyroid BHRT consultation, please call (228)
