The Ups and Downs of Hormone Therapy
Hormones are some of the most powerful agents in the human body, controlling and/or effecting metabolism, cellular restoration, immune responses, reproductive function, hunger sensations, sexual response, puberty, growth, mood, and more. They’re integral to our overall function, and as such, it is imperative that our hormones are in balance and that all of the systems that produce these agents work properly. In some cases, however, people develop conditions that require the use of synthetic hormone replacement therapy:
Sometimes, women going through menopause benefit from hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Likewise, aging men sometimes require testosterone replacement therapy. Transgender people undergoing transition therapy also benefit from hormone therapy.
Hormones, synthetic or natural, are incredibly powerful, though. So being on hormone replacement therapy is serious business, and that makes it essential that people on hormone replacement therapy wear medical ID jewelry indicating their diagnosis (or diagnoses) as well as the fact that they’re on HRT.
Here are some examples of what to engrave on your hormone replacement therapy medical ID bracelet:
