Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men and Women
As we age, our natural levels of hormones decline which frequently creates an imbalance of hormones and leads to signs and symptoms which can affect our quality of life such as; low energy, weight gain, low sex drive and low sexual stamina in men and women, depression, mood swings, insomnia, poor concentration and memory.
BHRT- A Safe And Sensible Approach
Aging is a natural phenomenon and hormone decline is part of aging. Our goal for BHRT is to achieve an age-appropriate natural balance of hormonal status. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally occurring vegetable sources, such as yams and soy, and are formulated to be identical to our body’s naturally occurring hormones.
What Does BHRT in Involve?
Your BHRT starts with an initial evaluation of your signs and symptoms, detailed medical and surgical history, saliva and blood hormone tests and review of your mammogram and pap smear results from your PCP. You are prescribed bio-identical hormone (injection or cremes) based on the evaluation and test results; your response is measured at your follow up visit in 8-12 weeks. Your hormone dose is adjusted if needed based on your response. We typically insert pellets at your second visit after determining your optimum hormone replacement dose. Regular follow-up visits and hormone level evaluation are recommended for safe and effective bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Dallas Bioidentical Hormone Pellets- Why Pellets?
Pellets consist of bio-identical estradiol or testosterone. Data supports that pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery. Pellets are inserted under the skin in a 15-minute in-office procedure, painlessly and with no downtime.
