As the name suggest, it is about replacement of the lost hormone back to the original level.
This is classically refereed to the lady entering menopause, with the lost of estrogen and progesterone hormone, and a host of other hormones but estrogen plays the central role in significance. The replacement is used to treat extreme menopausal syndrome and usually last for about 10 years into the sixties.
However, the hormone replacement also brought about unintended anti aging effect. This takes us into the next realm of great interest.
The benefit brought about by the HRT pushed many of us into the temptation of getting younger, the slogan “Look Young, Feel Young and Stays Young”. Nowadays, many ladies wound vouch for this treatment just trying every way to be younger.
Thus, the treatment has been applied for younger lady in their late thirties onward due to hormonal imbalances that brings about obesity, lost sleep and appetite….
The man does not get an abrupt aging milestone like the lady when they enter fifties, the menopause. The man ages gradually when it come to the hormonal level of aging. It decrease imperceptibility slowly over decades. This phenomenon is called the andropause, the male aging. The key hormone that is the focus is the testosterone. Its decline takes away the the energy level and the man’s stamina. Of course, every system also starts to age along. Another major hormone the decreases is the human growth hormone, hGH. This decrease also brings about lost of energy, libido and stamina…..
The way to age better and live a quality of life, QoL, is to give hormone replacement of lost hormones. It has been practiced in recent decades due to better understanding of the aging process.
HRT is now also given readily to man less that fifties. The purpose is to improve the stamina, libido and energy level for a better QoL.
