Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a specialised treatment used to alter your body’s natural hormone levels. When you’re feeling tired or run down, it can be caused by an imbalance in your hormones. This type of treatment will bring your energy back whilst helping your body run more effectively.

Are you feeling tired and run down?

It is exactly what it states replacement of the hormone that is lacking or below the effective normal range.

Type 1 Diabetics have very little or no Insulin at all and these people will age rapidly and die prematurely if the Insulin is not replaced urgently and for the rest of their lives. This is a very important and life-saving example of HRT.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT ?

More than 50 hormones regulate our mood, metabolism, sexual,function, growth and development. The major endocrine glands produce and release hormones which attach to receptors of specific target cells even at a distance, organising their specific functions which have been genetically determined. Like an orchestra one hormone can set off a cascade of events and alteration of their function can have a severe impact on the whole body.

Thyroid replacement therapy

Some children are born with under-active Thyroid glands which produce much less thyroid hormones, leading to stunted growth and mental slowness if not diagnosed early in life when the thyroid hormone needs to be replaced immediately.

Insulin replacement therapy

Diabetics have very little or no Insulin at all and these people will age rapidly and die prematurely if the Insulin is not replaced urgently and for the rest of their lives. This is a very important and life-saving example of HRT.

Growth Hormone replacement therapy

Some growing children might have reduced production of growth hormone with similar consequences on their growth. Growth hormone can also be replaced.
