As we age, hormone levels change, sometimes resulting in diminished levels

that need to be optimized for you to feel your best.

Hormones are chemicals secreted by glands in your body that are needed for many of the body’s processes such as sexual function, brain function, digestion and growth.

 Bio-Identical hormones are hormones found in nature that are identical to those in your body. 

Bio-Identical hormones can replace diminished hormone levels through a treatment called Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, bringing balance back to your hormone levels and your life.

How do we administer Bio-Identical Hormones?

After diagnosing your symptoms, our doctors will determine the best treatment options for you. Bio-Identical hormones are administered in a variety of formats such as pills, creams, gels and shots, once administered our doctor’s will closely monitor your hormone levels to make sure you are achieving your therapeutic goals with the correct hormone dosage. This is often times adjusted to get the optimal balance necessary for your body.

What are the risks associated with Bio-Identical Hormones?

Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy which utilized synthetic hormones and conjugated equine estrogen have resulted in  heart attacks, breast cancer, stroke and blood clots. In response the new treatment of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy was born.

Bio Identical Hormones are derived from natural sources and are biologically identical to a person’s hormones. They are therefore considered to be safer and have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones. Additionally there are Bio-Identical Hormones approved by the FDA which have passed strict standards. However this does not mean that Bio-Identical Hormones do not have potential side effects. Additionally compounded Bio-Identical Hormones which may be chosen by your doctor to better treat individual conditions are not approved by the FDA.

Side effects may occur as the body adjusts to an increase in hormone levels and may decrease over time. Always contact your doctor to notify them of any changes or side effects you may be experiencing. Some common side effects include: acne, additional facial hair in women, blurred vision, weight gain, fatigue, tenderness of the breasts, indigestion and mood swings.
