Learn More About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Not that long ago, doctors would prescribe hormone replacement therapy to treat menopause symptoms as well as women who are going through menopause. This can help to reduce any risk of heart disease and osteoporosis. After a 2002 study that was government funded, many women ended up quitting hormone replacement therapy because of the risks. However, hormone replacement therapy and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy are two separate entities. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a form of alternative medicine that can be used in men or women. If you’re interested in this procedure, then contact us today to schedule an appointment.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is different than other types of hormone replacement therapy. This treatment can help men and women whose hormone levels have dropped and become unbalanced. It can help to ease those with menopause or perimenopause symptoms as well as improve symptoms of cancer treatments. BHRT can help to treat conditions such as fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, adrenal and thyroid disorders, and even insulin resistance. This treatment is man-made hormones that are produced from plant estrogens. They are made to be chemically identical to human hormones. The hormones that are replicated to use for treatment are testosterone, progesterone, estradiol, and estrogen.
The Benefits Of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
This type of hormone treatment can be very beneficial for those who have unbalanced hormone levels or who are going through menopause. For people whose hormone levels have dropped, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can increase the levels and improve symptoms such as sleep issues, loss of interest in sex, pain during sex, memory loss, mood changes, night sweats, and hot flashes. It can also help to reduce the risk of tooth loss, cataracts, and diabetes. The purpose of BHRT is to help improve your quality of life and how you feel about yourself and your body.
What We Offer For Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
At La Beauté Medical Aesthetics, we offer a variety of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy options. The two we focus primarily on are hormone pellet implants and thyroid replacement therapy. Both of these treatments help improve your body and its functions.
Hormone Pellet Implants
Hormone pellet implants are a safe and effective technique to provide men and women with estrogen and testosterone therapy. It’s a convenient and economical way to provide effective hormone therapy. These pellets are created from testosterone and estradiol and are made into small cylinders. The pellets are larger than a grain of rice and are FDA-approved.
Thyroid Replacement Therapy
Another method we offer is thyroid replacement therapy. This treatment can become the function of the thyroid gland if it’s not working properly. It can also help to prevent any further growth of the thyroid tissue. There are many people who have thyroid gland issues and are unable to make enough for the body, which is how these treatments came into play to replicate the function of a normal thyroid gland and ensure your body is working the way that it should.
