Hormone therapy helps manage uncomfortable symptoms of hormonal imbalances caused by perimenopause, menopause, or low testosterone. You might also benefit from treatment if you have an underlying metabolic condition like insulin resistance, fibromyalgia, or osteoporosis.
Hormone therapy uses synthetic or naturally derived hormones to restore your body to balance and improve your quality of life. It’s safe, effective, and presents relatively few risks.

Aside from balancing your hormones, research shows hormone therapy can reduce your risk of cataracts, tooth loss, and even diabetes.
Carolinas Health and Wellness administers hormone therapy in various ways, including pills, patches, creams, gels, injections, and implantable pellets. The type of hormone therapy that will most benefit you depends on various factors, including your age, medical history, and the severity of your hormonal imbalance.
Following a complete exam and a series of lab tests, your Carolinas Health and Wellness provider can develop a hormone therapy treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
Your Carolinas Health and Wellness provider reviews your health history, asks about your symptoms, and conducts a physical exam to diagnose a hormone imbalance. They also order laboratory tests to assess your hormone levels, including blood work and urinalysis. After gathering that information, your provider develops a care plan.
