Plano, TX (PressExposure) January 15, 2010 -- Plano Wellness Clinic Offers Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Texas Medical Wellness & Weight Loss [http://texasmedicalwellness.com] ([http://texasmedicalwellness.com]) is pleased to offer the residents of Dallas, Plano, Frisco and the surrounding metroplex area hormonal analysis and bio-identical hormone replacement in addition to solutions for difficult weight loss situations. Menopause and andropause (âmale menopauseâ) may cause a variety of vague symptoms, including sudden, unexplained weight gain, changes in libido, fatigue, and a general feeling of âsomething doesnât feel right.â Frequently these symptoms are ignored or overlooked at the time of an annual physical, often explained away as part of âgetting older.â Drs. Michael and Michele Cavenee at Texas Medical Wellness & Weight Loss specialize in evaluating issues of hormone imbalance, helping patients to lose weight and resolve other mid-life symptoms.
Many times the issues of weight gain and hormone imbalance are closely related, and weight loss may involve getting the bodyâs hormones back in balance. According to Dr. Michele Cavenee, M.D., âI frequently see patients who are doing everything I ask, eating a healthy diet and exercising, but not getting the results we would expect. Rather than becoming discouraged, I suggest hormonal analysis.â Dr. Cavenee goes on to explain that very often when a patient gains weight, âThey develop a hormonal imbalance, or they have a hormonal imbalance that causes weight gain. This hormonal imbalance can sabotage the best weight-loss program, and until it is addressed weight loss will be difficult.â
Dr. Michael Cavenee went on to add that hormonal imbalances âcan make fat burning very difficult, causing the storage of fat in a manâs stomach area or in a womanâs thigh and hip area.â According to Dr. Cavenee, âHormonal imbalance can also make it almost impossible for a man or woman to add the muscle mass needed to effectively burn fat â24/7â and maintain weight loss.â In his opinion, diagnosing a hormonal imbalance followed by hormonal optimization (with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy) is often âthe missing piece in the weight-loss puzzle.â
Hormonal analysis is also invaluable to the treatment of menopause and andropause (male menopause) symptoms. âFatigue, lack of energy, diminished libido, abnormal weight gain especially around the mid-section, loss of muscle tone and lean muscle mass, depression and anxiety are all consistent with a hormonal imbalance,â according to Dr. Cavenee. After testing and diagnosis, these can often be successfully treated with bio-identical hormones, giving the patient a better quality of life.
