Hormone Management Q&A

What is hormone management?

Hormone management addresses health issues related to hormones, which are chemical communicators inside your body that drive many natural processes. While you might not think much about your hormones on a day-to-day basis, having a hormone imbalance can more significantly impact your health and well-being than you might anticipate. 

Sometimes, you can manage a hormone imbalance with dietary and lifestyle changes. However, other imbalances need a little more intervention. Hormone replacement therapy can restore a healthy balance to the hormones in your body to alleviate symptoms and help you feel more energized. 


Who can benefit from hormone management?

Hormone management with or without hormone replacement therapy might benefit you for several reasons.

Greenwood Village Family Medicine can help you manage a hormone imbalance involving your thyroid or hormone imbalances among sex hormones like testosterone and estrogen. Women in menopause often benefit from hormone replacement to manage symptoms. 

Some common signs of a possible hormone imbalance include:

  • Fatigue 
  • Sexual dysfunction and painful intercourse
  • Unexplained weight fluctuations
  • Sleep problems
  • Acne
  • Anxiety
  • Skin changes
  • A slow or rapid heart rate

Many of these symptoms are not exclusive to hormone imbalances, but Dr. Donch can diagnose or rule out other possibilities during your appointment. 


What should I expect from hormone management?

Hormone management at Greenwood Village Family Medicine doesn’t just involve testing and treatment when you need it.

Dr. Donch emphasizes the importance of education about hormones and how they work inside your body. When you improve your understanding of hormones and their influences, you’re better able to identify an imbalance.

If you suspect a hormone imbalance based on your symptoms, Greenwood Village Family Medicine can provide hormone blood testing to measure levels of specific hormones in your system. If they detect low levels, they can then proceed with providing the treatment you need. 

There are several ways to take hormones in hormone replacement therapy, including patches, pills, creams, and injections. Dr. Donch helps you decide on the best way to manage your hormones.
