It is broadly accepted by the medical and scientific communities that a number of hormones decline with aging. These declines can result in many of the symptoms and manifestations of aging. For women, menopause is the result of the precipitous decline in estrogen and progesterone production. For men, andropause is the result principally of a decline in testosterone levels. The other hormones that decline and are well documented include growth hormone and the adrenal hormone DHEA. The decline in these hormones starts much earlier and is more gradual. Our bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is designed to counter these declines with therapeutic level of hormone replacement.
