Our bodies need different hormones in balance so we can experience optimal health and wellbeing. One of these hormones is testosterone. Low testosterone could be caused by our lifestyle, estrogen dominance, or reduced production of testosterone. Symptoms of low testosterone include loss of libido, depressed mood, tiredness, decreased muscle mass and weight gain.
Bio-identical hormones can be good and bad. It all depends on how they are used. At the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, we work with our patients' physician to provide compounded bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. The most important part of planning your medication dosage is testing your hormone levels to see if there is an imbalance. It is important to understand how the different hormones influence and affect each other.
