When the body’s hormonal system is compromised, problems large and small can be experienced.
Hormones in the body carry messages to the tissues and the organs telling them how to operate properly.
When the body’s hormonal system is compromised, problems large and small can be experienced. Just soreness when getting out of bed could conceivably be a sign of a hormonal imbalance. This imbalance can be a sign of more serious issues as well.
When the thyroid is hit by disease, that hormone production is at risk. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is one way this situation can be corrected.
Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by, among other things, an autoimmune disease or suddenly stopping steroid medicines used to treat other causes.

While hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a primary solution for women suffering from menopause, men can also use HRT to treat certain conditions.

Take Control of Your Health
In treating hormonal imbalances, there are a variety of commercially available hormone replacement therapies (HRTs). But as can be the case, not all patients can tolerate these therapies because of additional ingredients (e.g., gluten) that are present in those prescription drugs.
Health Dimensions Clinical Pharmacy, in conjunction with a patient’s doctor, can create customized hormonal therapies that don’t include unnecessary ingredients that can keep a patient from being able to tolerate the therapy.
As part of the body’s endocrine system, the thyroid gland produces two crucial hormones (thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3)). When the thyroid is hit by disease, that hormone production is at risk. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is one way this situation can be corrected.
Diseases of the thyroid include hyperthyroidism, goiter, thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules, thyroiditis, and Hashimoto’s disease. Health Dimensions Clinical Pharmacy creates bioidentical forms of thyroid replacement drugs. These formulations are customized for individual patients to take into account potential variations in hormone production by the thyroid.
Adrenal Insufficiency occurs when the adrenal glands fail to produce enough of certain hormones. Addison’s disease is a common form of this affliction. Common symptoms include loss of appetite, muscle weakness, abdominal pain, and fatigue. Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by, among other things, an autoimmune disease or suddenly stopping steroid medicines used to treat other causes.
Treating adrenal insufficiency can call for hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Health Dimensions Clinical Pharmacy, in partnership with prescribers, will customize that hormone treatment, often using bioidentical hormones that are plant-based solutions.
While hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a primary solution for women suffering from menopause, men can also use HRT to treat certain conditions. For example, Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is the primary treatment for hypogonadism. Benefits from the treatment include increased libido and energy levels as well as increased bone density levels.
