Many of us don’t think about our hormones much after the turbulent teenage years. Once things settle down and we enter adulthood, it’s easy to believe that everything will simply continue on the way it always has. When it doesn’t, the team at Renew Health in Tempe, AZ offers male/female hormone therapy to get you back to feeling like yourself again.

The Problem of Imbalance
Medical professionals estimate that nearly 80% of adults have some type of hormone imbalance. Unfortunately, the symptoms of these imbalances are often written off as just “getting older.” In some cases, people are expected to simply get over it, while at other times they are given unnecessary medications that address symptoms without ever getting to the root of the problem. At Renew Health, we have a better way.
While most people are familiar with female menopause, not as many know that perimenopause, the time that precedes menopause, can come with all kinds of unpleasant symptoms. Just some of the symptoms of a female hormone imbalance include:
- Anxiety and depression
- Low libido
- Weight gain and difficulty losing weight
- Insomnia and fatigue
- Memory loss
- Dry skin
- Thinning hair
- Irregular periods
- Temperature regulation issues
The hormone imbalance problems that men face aren’t as talked about as female imbalances, but they are just as big a problem. Most men start to experience significant testosterone decline beginning in their mid-30s. This causes a whole host of unpleasant symptoms and increases a man’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Unfortunately, most men don’t seek treatment until they experience a noticeable decline in libido. By that point, the hormone imbalance is severe. Earlier symptoms to watch for include:
- Fatigue and lack of motivation
- Mood swings and depression
- Inability to focus
- Weight gain, especially in the belly
- Unexplained loss of muscle tone
- Hair loss
- Excessive sweating
What Is Male/Female Hormone Therapy?
At Renew Health, we don’t just treat the individual symptoms of hormone imbalances. We aim to understand who you really are and treat the underlying cause so all your symptoms will be improved. This means providing you with an entirely personal process of testing and hormone replacement therapy. In both men and women, testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone can all be at play. For male/female hormone therapy to be effective, we need to know where the imbalance lies.
Once we understand your imbalance through testing, there are different ways we can deliver the needed hormones to you and bring you back into a healthy balance. It’s important to re-evaluate hormone levels to ensure treatment is working as it should. We stay with you until you achieve the balance you need.
Individual results and treatment regimens vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors. During a consultation, we can give you a better idea of what to expect in your situation.
