Men and woman both suffer from the effects of hormone imbalances, and age is no exception. It has long been believed that only people in their middle-age and elder years are afflicted by hormonal conditions, but that is not the case. While it is true that a majority of candidates for hormone replacement therapy emerge from that demographic, hormone imbalance can affect anyone at any stage in their life. Hormone replacement therapy benefits are extensive and can create a healthier, happier life.
