I’ve been a patient of Dr. Sue for years. She checks my hormone levels every three months and changes my prescription accordingly. Even during the pandemic she offers phone consultations which is so helpful now that I don’t go into the city as often. She is always kind and so knowledgeable. The best doctor you’ll find in NYC for weight loss and hormone replacment! ~ Google

As we age, even as early as age 30, our internal production of hormones can start to decline. Initially, the effects are subtle and vary between individuals. But as we head toward middle age most of us experience adverse symptoms.

Symptoms of low hormones vary with the actual hormone that is low. But many deficiencies overlap, for example, weight gain can occur from hypoactive thyroid as well as in menopause and andropause. Men with low testosterone (also known as Low-T) and women with low estrogen may also have low DHEA and need treatment for both.

Please note: The Manhattan based Hormone Replacement Therapy specialist doctor offers in-person and virtual consultations (from anywhere in the world).

Common Symptoms of Hormone Deficiency:

  • Weight gain and increased belly fat
  • Lowered physical stamina, exercise capacity, and overall energy
  • Decreased libido and sexual capacity
  • Blunted memory, brain fog
  • Intolerance to temperature extremes
  • Weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bad mood
  • Thinning hair and eyebrows
  • Gray hair
  • Erectile dysfunction: men
  • Thinning skin with increased wrinkling, decreased elasticity, dryness, flakiness, and itchiness
  • Thinning bones and decreased muscle mass
  • Insomnia
  • Poor work-out recovery

We used to accept any or all of the above as a normal part of getting older. But if we treat the deficiencies that lead to all of the symptoms touched on above a person can look feel their best.

Hormone replacement therapy results in an anti-aging effect.

Hormone replacement therapy is modern medicine: a safe evidence-based medical practice. In our practice, we only prescribe Bioidentical Hormone Therapy.

Why Are Hormones Important to You?
Hormones are intrinsic substances that provide a continuum of specific information to nurture and direct specific cells in target organs. Without optimal hormone levels, your body function is off balance – and you know it. Even after seeing your physician and being told you are okay, something just isn’t right. Hormone replacement therapy can make such a difference for these individuals. Most of us are or will become these individuals.

Individual body organs and their systems – heart; cardiovascular system, brain; neurological system – are not isolated systems. They need communicating hormones to stay vital. Looking back, life expectancy in 1900 was the late 40’s; so many died before reaching menopause or andropause. Now that we expect to live so many decades more than our grandparents we will have to deal with the effects of low hormone levels. With modern medicine extending life into the ninth and tenth decade, we need to think about the quality of life that hormone replacement treatment produces. Prescription medications and sophisticated treatments are not enough by themselves to produce the level of health and well-being that we deserve today.
