Have you begun to lose some of the energy and invigoration you used to feel regularly during your youth? This, unfortunately, happens to many people as they begin to grow older. Fortunately, this loss of and vitality is not something that people have to take lying down any longer. Age Management Center of New England is proud to offer our patients access to hormone replacement therapy that can address this side effect of aging safely and effectively while simultaneously improving a variety of the other negative side effects of aging.

What is the Cause of Age-Related Energy Loss?

As people begin to age, many of them begin to experience inexplicable losses in energy. This decline in energy can make daily life significantly more difficult. Often, this change is, at least in part, due to fluctuations in hormone levels. These fluctuations are present in both men and women as they get older.

Hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, cortisol, and DHEA can play a huge role in the way people feel both physically and mentally. As individuals age, these hormone levels naturally begin to change in both the amount they are produced and in what proportion to each other they are produced, leading to energy loss and other negative side effects.

How can Hormone Replacement Therapy Help?

Unfortunately, loss of energy is often not the only adverse side effect that individuals experience as they age. Many other people simultaneously suffer from:

  • Declines in cognitive functioning
  • Declines in bone strength
  • Decreased joint flexibility
  • Increases in mood fluctuations
  • Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Hot flashes in women

All of these side effects can be connected to fluctuations in hormone levels as people grow older. Hormone replacement therapy is a medical treatment that uses bioidentical hormones to balance out hormone levels to their natural proportions, correcting the numerous physical and mental side effects that this imbalance caused. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to those produced naturally by the body, ensuring patients achieve dramatic results without unwanted or harmful side effects.
