Hormone therapy can sometimes help alleviate symptoms of brain fog, which is a feeling of confusion, forgetfulness, and difficulty concentrating. Hormonal imbalances can affect the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain, which can in turn contribute to brain fog.

BRAIN FOG CAUSED BY HORMONE IMBALANCES

Low levels of estrogen and testosterone can cause cognitive decline and brain fog, which can be treated with hormone replacement therapy. Similarly, an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) can cause symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, and difficulty concentrating, and can be treated with replacement thyroid hormone.

BRAIN FOG CAUSED BY HYPOTHYROIDISM

Similarly, an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) can cause symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, and difficulty concentrating, and can be treated with replacement thyroid hormone.

It is important to note that brain fog can have many causes, including stress, sleep deprivation, certain medications, and underlying health conditions. Hormone therapy may be effective for some individuals, but it is not a universal solution for brain fog.

Before starting hormone therapy, it is important to undergo lab testing to identify the underlying cause of the brain fog and determine the most appropriate course of treatment. Start by scheduling your labs at Blue Sky MD today.

HORMONE THERAPY FOR WOMEN

As if these frustrating symptoms weren’t bad enough, imbalanced hormones in women may increase the risk of osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and many other diseases and conditions.

Hormone therapy helps reduce these symptoms and protect our bodies against the more serious side effects of aging.

There are several types of hormone therapy available. The type prescribed a physician will depend on a patient’s symptoms and particular needs. Some common types of hormone therapy include:

  1. Estrogen Therapy
    This is the most commonly prescribed type of HT and is used to relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. It can be taken in the form of pills, patches, gels, or creams.

  2. Progestin Therapy
    This type of therapy is often prescribed in combination with estrogen therapy. Progestin is a synthetic form of progesterone, a hormone that helps balance the effects of estrogen.

  3. Testosterone Therapy
    This type of therapy is typically prescribed for men who have low levels of testosterone, a condition known as hypogonadism. Testosterone therapy can be administered in the form of gels, patches, or injections.

  4. Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy
    This type of therapy is used to treat low thyroid hormone levels, a condition known as hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormone replacement therapy can be taken in the form of pills.

  5. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
    This type of therapy uses hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally produced by the body. They are usually customized to the individual patient based on their hormone levels and symptoms.

Pellets are made up of either estradiol or testosterone. The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders. These pellets are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a ‘Tic Tac’.

In the United States, the majority of pellets are made by compounding pharmacists and delivered in sterile glass vials. There is an ‘FDA approved’ 75 mg testosterone pellet.

Data supports that hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is the most effective and the most bio-identical method to deliver hormones in both men and women.

Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.

Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-4 months in women and 4-5 months in men. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery. In studies, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance.

The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure done under local anesthesia. The pellets are usually inserted in the lower abdominal wall or upper buttocks through a small incision, which is then taped, closed.

 

Complications from the insertion of pellets include; minor bleeding or bruising, discoloration of the skin, infection, and the possible extrusion of the pellet. Other than slight bruising, or discoloration of the skin, these complications are very rare. Testosterone may cause a slight increase in facial hair in some women. Testosterone stimulates the bone marrow and increases the production of red blood cells.

 
 

Some patients begin to ‘feel better’ within 24-48 hours while others may take a week or two to notice a difference. Diet and lifestyle, along with hormone balance are critical for optimal health. Stress is a major contributor to hormone imbalance and illness. Weight loss is often helpful to optimize the effectiveness of pellet therapy.

 
 
 
 

The pellets usually last between 3 to 4 months in women and 4-5 months in men. The pellets do not need to be removed. They completely dissolve on their own.
