Wondering if hormone replacement therapy is right for you? Watch this interview to learn about hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women with Dr. Fit and Fabulous (Dr. Jaime Seeman, MD, FACOG).
Former Mrs. Nebraska, Season 2 Titan Games contender, wife, mom of 3, entrepreneur, and OBGYN, Dr. Jaime Seeman’s story will inspire. She shares her own experience with reversing her insulin resistance, prediabetes, and hypothyroidism.
After menopause, a woman's risk for hypothyroidism, dementia, diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis all increases. The common thread to these conditions is insulin resistance. Properly dosed, administered, and timed hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help reduce your risk for these conditions.
But there is a “golden window of opportunity to see the preventative benefits of HRT. Hormone replacement therapies are better and prevent disease, not reversing it.
Dr. Fit and Fabulous also speaks about lifestyle changes to make to protect your brain, bones, and heart in perimenopause and after menopause.
