As we age, hormone levels will decline. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the replacement of hormones in menopausal women and andropausal men. Hormone pellets are surgically implanted into the patient for BHRT. The pellets are tiny cylinders that are inserted into a numbed area of subcutaneous fat, typically in the hip or the abdomen. This dosing form is very physiologic in that it closely mimics how our body releases hormones. These pellets can last 3 to 6 months, depending on the patient. Pellets can be made using estradiol or testosterone. Dosing is determined by your Provider based on lab results, medical history, and reported symptoms.
As women age, their hormones become unbalanced as certain hormonal levels begin to drop. As a result, women suffer a host of symptoms relating to deficiencies and imbalances of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone, among other hormones. This can cause women to experience hot flashes, weight gain, decreased libido, and insomnia, but you do not have to except these symptoms. You can fight back!
Our clinic provides San Antonio, Texas with a safe and effective bio-identical or “natural” hormone therapy that can restore your hormone levels, while helping to erase the many acute and chronic conditions that women experience due to drops in hormone levels.
Men of all ages can experience decreased levels of testosterone. Signs of andropause (men’s menopause) can happen as early as in the 30’s, while others may not have their hormone levels drop until their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. Regardless of age, a decrease in testosterone can cause a severe disruption in your everyday life. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy helps men regain and then maintain their natural, optimal testosterone level, which is unique to everyone.
As men age, they often hear that they should start expecting the symptoms of lower testosterone levels. These include losing strength, gaining body fat, decreased energy, loss of muscle, and a diminished libido. If this sounds familiar, you don’t have to just accept it. You can fight back!
