Hormone Replacement Therapy

What makes us distinctive is our scientifically based hormonal replacement program developed as a result of our over 30 years of experience and the unique expertise of one of the top endocrinologists and founder of La Clinique de Paris Dr. Claude Chauchard.

Nowadays due to lifestyle and food choices as well as environmental factors people have the need to start hormonal therapy at a very young age.
Getting older can be difficult enough emotionally without the added physical changes like hot flashes that keep you up at night.

The process of aging starts the same moment that the hormonal imbalance occurs in the body.

Men and women both suffer from various forms of hormone imbalance as they age, but women typically experience more physical changes than men do. If you’ve been diagnosed with perimenopause, menopause, or low testosterone, then you’ve probably tried everything to experience relief.

Poor sleep quality with difficulty initiating sleep, maintaining sleep, and/or not obtaining restful sleep, affects multiple body systems and can impair physical and mental health. Relatively short and long sleep duration have been identified as predictors of outcomes such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, reduced pain tolerance, impaired cognitive function, and mortality.

insomnia can also be related to hormone imbalance. Fluctuations of thyroid, testosterone, cortisol, progesterone, melatonin and/or growth hormone can all cause sleep difficulties

Obesity is a chronic (long-term) medical disease whereby the body carries too much body fat.

When you gain weight for no obvious reason, it may be linked to hormone fluctuations. These changes can occur with age,  or a medical issue.

Changes in hormone levels can affect major body functions, including the way you gain and lose weight. While hormonal weight gain affects both sexes, the distribution of fat differs between women and men.

Treating hormonal weight gain involves finding and fixing the hormonal imbalance. You may also need treatment for the underlying medical issue causing a shift in your hormone levels.

Insulin is one of the most important hormones when it comes to weight loss and weight gain.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) happens when a woman’s ovaries or adrenal glands produce more male hormones than normal. PCOS causes cysts (fluid-filled sacs) to grow on the ovaries. Women with PCOS are at higher risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and high blood pressure.

PCOS is more common in women who have obesity or have a mother or sister with PCOS.

What Do Hormones Have to Do With PCOS?

When you have PCOS, your reproductive hormones are out of balance. This can lead to problems with your ovaries, such as not having your period on time or not getting it at all.

Your body makes hormones to make different things happen. Some affect your menstrual cycle and are tied to your ability to have a baby. The hormones that play a role in PCOS include:

* Androgens. They’re often called male hormones, but women have them, too.

* Insulin. This hormone manages your blood sugar. If you have PCOS, your body might not react to insulin the way it should.

* Progesterone. With PCOS, your body may not have enough of this hormone. You might miss your periods for a long time or have trouble predicting when they’ll come.
