HORMONAL EVALUATION

Hormones are chemical messengers that play an essential role in your body. They are secreted into the blood stream and travel to various tissues and organs providing unique functions such as:
  • Development and growth
  • Your body’s metabolism
  • Sexual function
  • Moods and response to stress.
If the hormones within your system are balanced and functional as intended, your overall bodily functions are in order including your sex drive. If the glands that supply these hormones malfunction for any reason, they either provide either extremely high or low levels of hormones, inviting an array of health complications ranging from diabetes, high blood pressure to heart disease. At Juhi, we have the best minds and the technologies to help prevent or reverse the effects of certain hormones dysfunctions through extensive hormone evaluation, optimisation and treatment.

FOR WOMEN
  • Medications containing forms of estrogen and progesterone to help regular menstrual cycles.
  • Vaginal estrogen that can be applied to the vaginal tissues to reduce symptoms or estrogen pills may be prescribed.
  • Hormone replacement therapies may temporarily reduce severe symptoms such as hot flashes or night sweats.
  • Anti-androgen medications to block the male sex hormones.
  • ART or Assisted reproductive technology such as IVF to help those with PCOS get pregnant.
FOR MEN

We prescribe medications and treatments that help manage or lower blood sugar levels, improve symptoms of hypothyroidism and conditions that may lower testosterone levels and delay puberty.
