None of the following information should be considered to be medical advice for anyone with whom I have not established a healthcare provider-patient relationship as required by law and medically ethical practice guidelines.    AUTHOR Dr. Terri DeNeui, DNP, APRN, ACNP-BC CATEGORY COVID-19 SOCIAL @EVEXIASMEDICAL Dr. Terri’s

The Vital Role of Hormone Therapy in Managing Dis-ease

Our healthcare system is facing unprecedented challenges with the recent pandemic of coronavirus and ensuing SARS Cov2, or COVID-19, and it is vital healthcare providers keep their patients active and healthy so as to not over burden a vulnerable system. AUTHOR Dr. Terri DeNeui, DNP, APRN, ACNP-BC CATEGORY COVID-19 SOCIAL @EVEXIASMEDICAL As an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner researching and practicing advanced endocrinology concepts over the past 12 years, I have recognized an overarching theme: hormones are active and play a vital role in every single body system. The far-reaching impact of restoring hormone homeostasis on health-related quality of life is an often-misunderstood phenomenon in both the healthcare and lay communities. With the additional burden of stress these uncertain times adds to an already encumbered psyche, classifying hormone therapies as inessential

The Consequences of Blocking Estrogen in Men

When it comes to hormones, it’s all about optimizing. Contrary to popular belief and old medical teachings, we now know that estrogen is a vital hormone for MEN as much as WOMEN! Not having enough (or any) estrogen isn’t good for many reasons. AUTHOR Dr. Terri DeNeui, DNP, APRN, ACNP-BC CATEGORY Men's Health SOCIAL @EVEXIASMEDICAL The truth: Men need estrogen to support heart, bone, brain and sexual health. That is why therapies that block estrogen may put your health at risk.    What many men don’t know is that their bodies make estrogen naturally via an enzyme called aromatase which converts testosterone into their needed estrogen. Aromatase is an enzyme involved in the production of estrogen that acts by catalyzing the conversion of testosterone (an androgen) to estradiol (an estrogen). Aromatase

Thyroid Health, Signs Yours Could Improve

The thyroid may be small, but don’t let it fool you—it can do a lot of good, and just as much damage. This butterfly-shaped gland found in the neck sits just under the voice box with two lobes that sit on either side of the windpipe. The thyroid gland produces key hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which are partially composed of iodine. If that seems like a lot to remember, don’t worry. Most people just call them the thyroid hormones anyway.

Today, we want to breakdown what andropause is, what to expect, and steps to take to minimize effects.
