Types of Hormonal Imbalances We Treat
Male hypogonadism is a condition in which the body is not producing enough testosterone. Testosterone is a hormone that plays a crucial role in masculine growth and development during puberty.
You can be born with male hypogonadism or it can develop later in life, often from injury or infection. The effects — and what you can do about them — depend on the cause and at what point in your life, male hypogonadism occurs. Certain types of male hypogonadism can be treated with testosterone replacement therapy.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to release eggs regularly.
The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment, along with weight loss, may reduce the risk of long-term complications such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
