What It Means To Work With A Hormone Doctor

Woman in discussion with patient in IVF clinicNatural hormone production levels decline as people grow older this decline can have a series of unfortunate results on their lives. These effects are true for both men and women. The symptoms of declining hormones can become unbearable. Although this is a natural process, there are certain factors of the modern lifestyle that make it worse than it has to be. If this sounds familiar, you may want to consider working with a hormone doctor.

In normal circumstances, the adrenal glands will pick up the slack for the gonads or ovaries. These glands produce chemicals that are similar to natural, male and female hormones like estrogen and testosterone. If a person has spent his or her life stressed out; however, the adrenals will be overworked. The adrenals are also responsible for the production of cortisol and adrenaline, which are released during times of stress to initiate what is known as the fight or flight response.

Sadly, many people have been so stressed out and for so long that the adrenals have become fatigued. If you smoke, drink a lot of coffee or consume a lot of energy drinks, you may even be at the point of adrenal failure. When this happens, your adrenal glands cannot produce the replacement hormones that are needed as you enter your thirties or forties and the production of reproductive chemicals starts to wane.

One large part of working with a medical doctor should involve adrenal testing and strategies for mitigating the health of these glands. If you can alleviate problems with failure or fatigue in this area, it may not be necessary to take any secondary products. This can be done through proper nutrition, plenty of rest, regular exercise and natural supplementation. Over time, your body will correct its chemical deficiencies, and your symptoms will abate.

Some of the symptoms that you may be experiencing include fatigue, mood swings, hot flashes and excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, headaches and worst of all, vertigo. When efforts to correct chemical production in the adrenal glands fail, your provider may suggest the use of replacement hormones, which would be bio-identical to those that your body naturally produces. Before starting these regimens, however, it is important to have a clear understanding of the short and long-term effects of these products.
