The Age Defying Clinic
Rejuvenate that energetic & youthful feeling.
You’ve always considered yourself a decent athlete and started getting involved in running and triathlons in your late 20s. Bitten by the competitive bug, you devoted more time to cross-training and started watching what you ate a little more closely. As you turned the corner toward your 50th birthday, though, you started feeling more lethargic, weaker, and your performance started to trend downhill.
It’s a story we often hear at Rejuvime Medical from both men and women seeking to regain their energy and zip. We customize hormone replacement therapy (HRT) at our Baton Rouge and New Orleans-area locations serving people from as far as Shreveport, LA, and Jackson and Hattiesburg, MS. This customization is designed to meet a patient’s specific needs based on blood tests and medical history, helping to boost strength and increase physical performance.
Rejuvime Medical can help athletic men and women regain their youthful energy and performance levels with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at our Baton Rouge-area clinics. Bioidentical hormones are the same at the molecular level as those produced by the body. By relieving the symptoms of menopause and andropause, hormone replacement treatments can help patients again enjoy participating in sports and athletic competitions.
Even though our patients’ goals are similar, we create therapeutic plans that specifically target each individual’s needs. Our specialists at Rejuvime Medical monitor your treatment with regular blood tests to check hormone levels, so the prescription for the patient is likely to change over time.
Unlike women, who see estrogen levels rapidly decline as they enter menopause, men see testosterone levels gradually diminish about 1 percent a year after the level peaks in early adulthood. Besides affecting performance and strength, low testosterone symptoms include:
Men may notice a decrease in strength and an increase in fatigue that’s more pronounced than in women.
Athletic, physically active women experience many of the same changes to their bodies during menopause that less athletic women their age do. Insomnia may be less of an issue because sedentary people tend to have more sleep issues than people who are physically fit. Still, as estrogen and progesterone levels drop, the changes can be unpredictable.
During perimenopause and menopause, women may also experience these symptoms:
Even women in peak shape may develop bellies as their bodies change the way fat is stored during menopause. And even though athletes tend to have denser bones than non-athletes, bone density loss still occurs. The same is true for building muscle, which becomes more difficult.
For women who want to increase their performance levels, hormone replacement therapy may also enhance cardiovascular health and minimize the risk of developing diabetes, osteoporosis, and macular degeneration.
People who want to improve their strength and athletic performance through hormone replacement therapy—including testosterone replacement therapy—travel from Lafayette, LA, and throughout the state to one of our 3 locations in Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas.
