Primary Care for Hormone Imbalances

Visit our St. Louis practice to find out which hormones are holding you back

If you feel constantly fatigued, irritable, achy, or unfocused, then you may be dealing with a hormone imbalance. 

Unfortunately, hormones often don’t get the spotlight they deserve at your traditional primary care practice. It’s not an issue of expertise. Instead, most doctors don’t have the time and energy needed to give you the care you deserve.

At Link Primary Care in St. Louis, we make you a priority. Our Direct Primary Care (DPC) model makes more room for long appointments and one-on-one care that gets you back to feeling your best. Hormones play a crucial role in maintaining our well-being and quality of life. It’s time to find answers to your chronic symptoms right here at Link Primary Care.

Hormones Have a Bigger Impact Than You Think

Hormones are chemical messengers produced by glands in the endocrine system, including the thyroid, adrenals, pancreas, ovaries, and testicles. They travel through the bloodstream, affecting various bodily functions such as growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and mood. 

Given their widespread influence, it’s easy to see how an imbalance in hormone levels can significantly impact one’s quality of life.

Five Symptoms of Common Hormone Disorders

Several symptoms can indicate a hormone disorder, and while this is not an exhaustive list, the following are among the most common:

Persistent tiredness, despite adequate rest, can be a sign of thyroid disorders, where either too much or too little thyroid hormone is produced.

Unexplained weight gain or loss can signal thyroid issues or insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes.

Hormone imbalances, especially in estrogen and progesterone, can lead to severe mood swings, anxiety, and depression.

Difficulty falling or staying asleep can be related to imbalances in hormones such as cortisol, produced by the adrenal gland.

A decrease in sex drive can be indicative of imbalances in sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.


Our Scientific Approach to Hormone Health

Hormone balance is a popular topic in some health circles. Sometimes, practitioners will put too much focus on this area, or they might try unorthodox treatments in order to get results. At Link Primary Care, we don’t follow fads or pseudoscience.

Just like any area of health, we rely on data, research, and testing to make the best decisions for our patients. Our approach to hormone health is methodical and patient-centered. Understanding that hormones are part of a delicate balance, we refrain from jumping to conclusions or prescribing quick fixes. 

Instead, we undertake a comprehensive evaluation that includes detailed medical history, symptoms, lifestyle factors, and advanced diagnostic testing to pinpoint the root cause of the imbalance.

Link Primary Care’s Process for Hormone Balance

Our DPC doctors take a holistic approach to hormone imbalances, considering the entire spectrum of patient health. Treatment strategies might include:

Recommendations on diet, exercise, stress management, and sleep hygiene to naturally support hormone balance.

When necessary, prescribing hormone replacement therapy or other medications while closely monitoring their effects.

Regular follow-ups to assess the efficacy of the treatment plan and make adjustments as needed.

Empowering patients with knowledge about their condition and how lifestyle choices affect hormone health.

Experience Direct Primary Care for Yourself

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a membership-based healthcare model that aims to simplify the patient-doctor relationship. Instead of relying on insurance billing for each visit or service, patients pay a monthly or annual fee that covers most, if not all, primary care services. This model fosters a more personal connection between the patient and their primary care physician, with benefits including:

Longer appointment times allow for a thorough discussion of health concerns, including hormone health, without the rush commonly experienced in traditional settings.

DPC practices often offer same-day or next-day appointments and direct communication with your doctor via phone or email. Great for people who can’t always come in to our St. Louis location.

With a focus on maintaining health rather than just treating illness, DPC doctors are well-positioned to monitor hormone levels and adjust treatments as needed

The membership model eliminates surprise billing and often leads to cost savings on laboratory tests, medications, and other services.
