Replace hormones: Hormones play an integral role in our health and wellbeing. For various reasons, some hormones may decrease which results in predictable signs and symptoms. Blood testing can detect deficient or insufficient levels of many important hormones. Replacement therapy is used to increase the levels of these hormones to healthy levels. There are risks and benefits to this therapy. Speak with your doc.
