Sometimes exercise and dieting are just not quite enough.
Despite a woman’s best efforts at maintaining a nutritious, fit, and healthy body, desired results are often hard to come by. Even if beneficial habits and lifestyle have been cultivated, certain hormonal and chemical phenomena are frequently out of our control. Regardless of age, maintaining proper levels and functioning of Estrogen and other key hormones can become an almost impossible task.
We are proud to deliver high quality remedies and treatments to our clients, with the intention of managing the natural aging process and helping them return to the younger, healthier versions of themselves.
An androgen (hormone) deficiency is often difficult to identify, as many women will think the symptoms result from psychological or lifestyle issues rather than a biological disorder. These symptoms can be inexplicable tiredness, lack of energy, disturbed sleep, low motivation levels, low self esteem and a complete lack of sexual desire (libido). A low level of androgens can also result in reduced bone density that can predispose to osteoporosis.
To confirm that a woman is suffering from androgen deficiency, the levels of testosterone and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) need to be evaluated. Research has shown that if a woman's level of "free" testosterone (calculated from the total testosterone level and the SHBG) is low, this produces symptoms of androgen deficiency even if levels of total testosterone alone appear "normal."
Hormone levels can be checked with a simple blood test that is covered by most insurances. This test is then evaluated by Dr. Bird to confirm the levels of the testosterone and the need for testosterone replacement therapy.
