Advanced Medical and Weight Loss Center in Alpharetta, Ga provides hormone optimization for women throughout the north Atlanta area. Hormone therapies are an effective way to mitigate the many symptoms often associated with hormonal imbalance. When a woman has a hormone imbalance in her endocrine system, she often experiences symptoms that range from subtle to debilitating. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) replaces hormones that have been lost and may relieve a wide variety of symptoms. While some decline of hormone levels come with aging, they can also be caused by stress, irregular appetite/sleeping patterns, and subjection to toxic substances. Regardless if you are living with symptoms of aging or more recognized conditions such as menopause, hypothyroidism, perimenopause, andropause, or adrenal fatigue, Dr. Nick Sidhu, Medical Director of Advanced Medical and Weight Loss Center in Alpharetta, GA, will provide you with a hormone treatment plan that is designed solely for you and will track your hormone levels and monitor your symptoms to get you back to functionally optimally.

What is Menopause?

Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles and when a woman’s ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone. It's diagnosed after you've gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Menopause can happen in your 40s or 50s, in the United States, the average female age at menopause is 52.

What is Perimenopause?

Perimenopause refers to the time in a woman’s life during which your body makes the natural transition to menopause, marking the end of the reproductive years. Perimenopause is also called the menopausal transition.

Women start perimenopause at different ages. You may notice signs of progression toward menopause, such as menstrual irregularity, sometime in your 40s or as early as mid-30s. Estrogen levels rise and fall unevenly during perimenopause. Your menstrual cycles may lengthen or shorten, and you may begin having menstrual cycles in which your ovaries don't release an egg (ovulate).

Common symptoms include:

• Irregular periods

• Night sweats

• Hot flashes

What to Expect from our Clinic

At Advanced Medical and Weight Loss Center, once we figure out the exact imbalances in your hormones, we can structure a program suited to your needs. Each patient’s symptoms are unique, which is why we customize our hormone therapy to the specific needs of the patient.

We begin by checking your hormone levels to see which ones need optimizing. Dr. Sidhu will work with you to address lifestyle factors and behaviors that may be contributing to your hormone imbalance such as stress levels, poor sleep patterns, and exercise. Our clinic only uses bio-identical hormones to replace the ones you may be deficient in. We may also recommend vitamins and supplements to get you back into hormone balance and functioning optimally. We will closely monitor your progress and make adjustments as we see how you respond to treatment.
