The most common reason for menopause is the natural decline in a female's reproductive hormones. However, menopause can also result from the following situations:
Oophorectomy: This surgery, which removes a woman's ovaries, causes immediate menopause. Symptoms and signs of menopause in this situation can be severe, as the hormonal changes happen abruptly.
Chemotherapy: Cancer treatments like chemotherapy can induce menopause quickly, causing symptoms to appear shortly after or even during treatment.
Ovarian Insufficiency: Also called premature ovarian failure, this condition is essentially premature menopause. It happens when a woman's ovaries quit functioning before the age of 40 and can stem from genetic factors and disease. Only 1% of women suffer from premature menopause, but HRT can help protect the heart, brain, and bones.
If you're a woman going through menopause and find that you have become increasingly depressed, you're not alone. It's estimated that 15% of women experience depression to some degree while going through menopause. What many women don't know is that depression can start during perimenopause, or the years leading up to menopause.
Depression can be hard to diagnose, especially during perimenopause and menopause. However, if you notice the following signs, it might be time to speak with a physician:
Remember, if you're experiencing depression, you're not weak or broken - you're going through a very regular emotional experience. The good news is that with proper treatment from your doctor, depression isn't a death sentence. And with HRT and anti-aging treatment for women, depression could be the catalyst you need to enjoy a new lease on life.
Hot flashes - they're one of the most well-known symptoms of menopause. Hot flashes are intense, sudden feelings of heat across a woman's upper body. Some last second, while others last minutes, making them incredibly inconvenient and uncomfortable for most women.
Symptoms of hot flashes include:
Typically, hot flashes are caused by a lack of estrogen. Low estrogen levels negatively affect a woman's hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls body temperature and appetite. Low estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to incorrectly assume the body is too hot, dilating blood vessels to increase blood flow. Luckily, most women don't have to settle for the uncomfortable feelings that hot flashes cause. HRT treatments for women often stabilize hormones, lessening the effects of hot flashes and menopause in general.
Mood swings are common occurrences for most people - quick shifts from happy to angry and back again, triggered by a specific event. And while many people experience mood swings, they are particularly common for women going through menopause. That's because, during menopause, the female's hormones are often imbalanced. Hormone imbalances and mood swings go hand-in-hand, resulting in frequent mood changes and even symptoms like insomnia.
The rate of production of estrogen, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, largely determines the rate of production the hormone serotonin, which regulates mood, causing mood swings.
Luckily, HRT and anti-aging treatments in Hialeah, FL for women work wonders for mood swings by regulating hormone levels like estrogen. With normal hormone levels, women around the world are now learning that they don't have to settle for mood swings during menopause.
Staying fit and healthy is hard for anyone living in modern America. However, for women with hormone imbalances during perimenopause or menopause, weight gain is even more serious. Luckily, HRT treatments for women coupled with a physician-led diet can help keep weight in check. But which hormones need to be regulated?
Lowered sexual desire - three words most men and women hate to hear. Unfortunately, for many women in perimenopausal and menopausal states, it's just a reality of life. Thankfully, today, HRT and anti-aging treatments Hialeah, FL can help women maintain a normal, healthy sex drive. But what causes low libido in women, especially as they get older?
The hormones responsible for low libido in women are progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone.
Progesterone production decreases during perimenopause, causing low sex drive in women. Lower progesterone production can also cause chronic fatigue, weight gain, and other symptoms. On the other hand, lower estrogen levels during menopause lead to vaginal dryness and even vaginal atrophy or loss of muscle tension.
Lastly, testosterone plays a role in lowered libido. And while testosterone is often grouped as a male hormone, it contributes to important health and regulatory functionality in women. A woman's testosterone serves to heighten sexual responses and enhances orgasms. When the ovaries are unable to produce sufficient levels of testosterone, it often results in a lowered sex drive.
Often uncomfortable and even painful, vaginal dryness is a serious problem for sexually active women. However, like hair loss in males, vaginal dryness is very common - almost 50% of women suffer from it during menopause.
Getting older is just a part of life, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for the side effects. HRT and anti-aging treatments for women correct vaginal dryness by re-balancing estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. When supplemented with diet and healthy living, your vagina's secretions are normalized, causing discomfort to recede.
Uterine fibroids - they're perhaps the least-known symptom of menopause and hormone imbalances in women. That's because these growths on the uterus are often symptom-free. Unfortunately, these growths can be cancerous, presenting a danger for women as they age.
Many women will have fibroids at some point. Because they're symptomless, they're usually found during routine doctor exams. Some women only get one or two, while others may have large clusters of fibroids. Because fibroids are usually caused by hormone imbalances, hysterectomies have been used as a solution, forcing women into early menopause.
Advances in HRT and anti-aging medicine for women give females a safer, non-surgical option without having to experience menopause early. At Global Life Rejuvenation, our expert physicians will implement a customized HRT program to stabilize your hormones and reduce the risk of cancerous fibroid growth.
Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS, and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.
Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.
Xenoestrogen is a hormone that is very similar to estrogen. Too much xenoestrogen is thought to stimulate endometrial tissue growth. HRT for women helps balance these hormones and, when used with a custom nutrition program, can provide relief for women across the U.S.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies. Ipamorelin can boost a patient's overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life.
When there is an increased concentration of growth hormone by the pituitary gland, there are positive benefits to the body. Some benefits include:

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a South Florida woman against the Kraft Heinz Food Company over the time it takes to make its Velveeta microwavable mac and cheese.
The class-action complaint was filed in November in the Southern District of Florida Miami Division on behalf of Amanda Ramirez, of Hialeah, and said the box's claims of "ready in 3-and-a-half minutes" doesn't accurately portray how long it takes to prepare the meal.
The suit alleged that the Pittsburgh-based company sells more of the product, and at a higher price, by misleading consumer's about the Velveeta Shells & Cheese prep time.
In a July 27 ruling, U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom granted Kraft's motion to dismiss the lawsuit, saying Ramirez didn't suffer an injury and continued to purchase the product after learning the label was allegedly "deceptive."
"She does not allege that she was unable to consume the product or that it was otherwise so flawed as to be rendered useless," Bloom wrote in the 13-page ruling. "In fact, the Complaint does not even include an allegation that Plaintiff ever attempted to cook the product."
The lawsuit had been seeking more than $5 million in damages and class-action status covering consumers in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah, New Mexico, Alaska, Iowa, Tennessee and Virginia.
"There is no real and immediate threat of future injury. Plaintiff’s counsel conceded that point during oral argument and acknowledged that Plaintiff lacks standing to seek injunctive relief," Bloom wrote. "The Court agrees that Plaintiff lacks standing to pursue a claim for injunctive relief."
Ramirez found the statement on the box that it would be ready in 3½ minutes "false and misleading" because in the directions, only one of several steps takes that amount of time, according to the suit.
"Consumers seeing 'ready in 3½ minutes' will believe it represents the total amount of time it takes to prepare the Product, meaning from the moment it is unopened to the moment it is ready for consumption," the suit said. "However, the directions outlined above show that 3-and-a-half minutes is just the length of time to complete one of several steps."
In a statement after the suit was filed, Ramirez's attorney, Will Wright, said corporations shouldn't get a pass for "deceptive advertising."
"I’ve gotten a lot of flak about this case, but deceptive advertising is deceptive advertising. Here, Kraft charges extra for a desirable feature (saving time) but the marketing is false, it takes far longer for the product to be ready than as advertised. Deceptive adverting plain and simple," his statement read. "There are a lot of people that may feel this is just a little fibbing and not really a case and I get that. But we are striving for something better. We want corporate America to be straightforward and truthful in advertising their products."
Kraft had previously called the lawsuit "frivolous."

A Miami-based developer purchased 20 single-family homes in Hialeah from the individual owners for $23.5 million in order to set up a major redevelopment.
Daniel Jaramillo, CEO of SP Developments, said the recently closed deals giving him ownership of all but one home on the block from East Ninth Avenue to East Tenth Avenue, between East 28th Street and East 27th Street. Only the homeowner at 942 E 28th Street wasn’t in the deal, but he can build around it, he added.
That gives Jaramillo’s company ownership of about 3.65 acres of land. The city recently changed the land use on the property to transit-oriented development (TOD).
The site is located two blocks northwest of the Tri-Rail/Metrorail Transfer Station.
Jaramillo said he’s working with Miami-based Modis Architects on the redevelopment. His plan calls for 612 apartments in two buildings of 10 stories each, along with 4,000 square feet of retail and a parking garage. There would be an interior courtyard with a pool, and two other courtyards. Amenities would include a 3,000-square-foot fitness center.
Jaramillo said he worked through an intermediary starting in fall 2022 to contact each homeowner and offer them a price higher than their homes were worth.
“Hialeah is where much of the Cuban population first came to Miami-Dade during the 1960s and most of these owners had their homes since the 1970s with no mortgage on it,” he said. “Everybody agreed to a higher price than their home was really worth.”
There’s been an influx of development near the Metrorail stations in Hialeah recently as people seek less expensive apartments within walking distance of public transit. MG Developer has a $600 million project coming to that area.

Seritage Growth Properties shed another South Florida Sears site, selling a shuttered store in Hialeah to Codina Partners.
Codina, led by the father-daughter team of Armando Codina and Ana-Marie Codina Barlick, paid $16.5 million for the 153,596-square-foot big box store at 1625 West 49th Street, according to a source familiar with the off-market deal.
The building is attached to Westland Mall, an indoor shopping center owned by Dallas-based Centennial. The deal also includes an outparcel that was previously a Sears automotive center and an adjoining parking lot.
In 2020, Seritage closed the department store and automotive center, which were both completed in 1980 and sit on 15 acres, records show.
Codina is partnering with Centennial, James Carr and Manny Kadre to redevelop the Sears site into a mixed-use project with an apartment component, according to a press release.
We are very early in the planning stages, but would love to provide primarily residential with additional retail subject to Centennial’s approval,” Armando Codina said in a statement. “Commercial is also a possibility. The goal is for this project to be as transformational for Hialeah as Downtown Doral has been for the city of Doral.”
Downtown Doral is Codina’s master-planned, mixed-use community of condominiums, apartments, retail and restaurants in Doral.
Centennial, led by Steven Levin, acquired Westland Mall last year from Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Capital Group by assuming a $149.4 million mortgage.
The shopping center’s anchor tenants are Macy’s and JCPenney, but both buildings are owned by other entities. Retailers at Westland Mall include Bath & Body Works, Pandora, and Express Factory Outlet.
Seritage, a New York-based Sears real estate spinoff led by CEO Andrea Olshan, has been offloading properties for the past year. It’s part of a strategy to pay down $640 million in mortgage debt owed to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.
Last year, Seritage sold a former Sears site at Southland Mall in Cutler Bay to North Palm Beach-based Electra America and Aventura-based BH Group for $34 million. Also last year, Seritage sold an Aldi-anchored retail plaza near North Miami for $38 million to Raanan Katz’s RK Centers.
Seritage is also finishing construction of Esplande at Aventura, an office and retail project on the site of a former Sears store at Aventura Mall, according to the company’s first quarter earnings report.

Project on former Salvation Army site is expected to be completed by year-end
Prestige Companies and its partner scored a $20.5 million construction loan for a multifamily project on a former Salvation Army site in Hialeah, marking the firm’s continued wager on the city.
Prestige and Florida Value Partners have started building the project, consisting of 100 townhouses for rent and a three-story building with 12 apartments atop 5,000 square feet of retail, said Prestige’s Alexander Ruiz. The project, at 7450 West Fourth Avenue, is expected to be completed by year-end.
The lender is Amzak Capital Management, the Boca Raton-based private investment firm for the Kazma family, records show. The Kazmas, who hail from Canada, built a cable television empire in North America and Latin America before focusing on investments in real estate, fixed-income assets such as corporate bonds, health care and industrial companies, according to Amzak’s website. Gerry Kazma is chairman, and his son, Michael Kazma, is president.
An affiliate of Prestige originally bought the nearly 5-acre development site in late 2021 for $8.3 million, a deed shows. Last year, that entity sold the property to a partnership of Prestige and Florida Value for $15 million.
The site is an Opportunity Zone, areas deemed in need of an economic boost. Investors can defer capital gains taxes by putting their money in a qualified Opportunity Zone fund, which in turn bankrolls real estate and business projects on Opportunity Zones.
More than $15 million in Opportunity Zone capital is earmarked for the Hialeah project from a qualified fund, which includes capital gains from Prestige and Florida Value, Ruiz said.
The developers scored city approval of the project last March.
This is the latest Hialeah project by Prestige, a Miami Lakes-based firm led by CEO Marty Caparros. The firm has built several Amelia-branded communities, named after Amelia Earhart, who attempted to become the first woman pilot to fly across the globe but disappeared in the Pacific Ocean.
Last year, Prestige also made headway in its plan to develop a 343-unit apartment complex and a charter school on an unused portion of the historic Hialeah Park Racing & Casino. Prestige paid $13.1 million for the 13-acre development site at the park, which no longer holds live races but has state approval for slot machines, card games and pari-mutuel wagering on televised horse races.
Florida Value, a Miami-based firm led by managing partner Gus Alfonso, has a portfolio of more than $1 billion of assets under management amassed since the firm was founded in 2008, according to its LinkedIn.
The Pérez family’s Related Group and Jeffrey Soffer’s Fontainebleau Development are developing a 642-unit complex at 7218 West Fourth Avenue, a former track for the now banned practice of greyhound racing, according to media reports.
Also in Hialeah, Dacar Management is building a 244-unit multifamily complex with retail at 3685 West 85th Path.
