Bioidentical Hormones 

Why use hormone replacements?

Bioidentical Hormones Therapy is one hormone replacement therapy (HRT) option available for men and women typically ages 40 and above. HRT is used for people who exhibit some combination of symptoms, including but not limited to depression, irritability and mood swings, extreme fatigue, decreased libido, mental fog, joint aches and pain, hot flashes, and night sweats. 

Why do some people need hormone replacement therapy?

The aim is to restore and balance hormone levels to make a significant difference in a person’s quality of life. Bioidentical hormones Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy utilizes bioidentical hormones, and has been shown in research studies to reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and dementia, as well as to help prevent bone mineral loss (osteopenia and osteoporosis), increase energy, lean muscle, and assist in the loss of belly fat. 

What is the difference between HRT and bioidentical hormones?

Bio-Identical hormones differ from synthetic hormones, in that they are made from plant estrogens, and are chemically identical to naturally produced hormones from the human body. Therefore, they are safer than synthetic hormones, and fewer harmful side effects have been indicated. 

How long can you take bioidentical hormones?

Hormone pellets are designed to deliver more physical, steady doses of hormones for patients indefinitely. This ease of use gives a better adherence and involves less interaction with other medications.

Am I a good candidate for bioidentical hormones?

To determine whether you are a good candidate for natural hormone balancing therapy, during the initial visit, your history and symptoms will be discussed at length, and a full blood panel will be ordered. Following this discussion and the lab work results, we will work together to form a hormone replacement therapy plan that best fits you and your needs. 

What are the side effects of bioidentical hormones?

Side effects include acne, headache, spotting, and breast tenderness; however, these usually go away after the adaption phase. Bioidentical hormones have been reviewed in 2018 and 2019, and are a better alternative than hormone creams, due to limited and unpredictable absorption.

How much do medical hormones cost?

The cost ranges between $400 and $600, with optimization taking up to 6 months depending on individual customization.
