Weight Management

Dr. Austin has a special focus on hormone metabolism and lifestyle medicine. She has a passion for teaching patients how all the hormones work together to ensure optimal health. The hormones effect mood, digestion, sleep, libido, appetite, body composition, energy, and heart health. Every hormone is connected to each other and must be treated as a whole. Looking at just estrogen, thryoid hormone, cortisol or insulin by themselves is in error. Dr. Austin teaches her patients lifestyle changes that will stick for life and reverse and prevent chronic illness.
Through addressing the underlying causes, she works with her patients to provide them with the most up to date research.

It is not just a matter of applying a hormone cream. Your hypothalamus and all the organs in your body follow a circadium rhythm and we have to pay attention to when the hormones need to be taken and how they are interfering with other hormones. We mustn’t take the same dose of hormones everyday. We must look at the whole cascade of hormones and how taking one hormone effects the others. Hormones are complicated as there are many feedback loops, conversions and metabolites that happen from taking one hormone in isolation.

The most up to date lab tests are done to ensure we are monitoring all the hormones. Dr. Austin works with her patients to balance all the hormones. Nutrition and lifestyle changes will be impletmented with all patients. Because hormones can effect blood sugar, cholesterol and health health, appetite and digestion, we have to ensure the foods people are eating are optimal for their health.
