Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Q & A
What is bioidentical hormone therapy?
Bioidentical hormone therapy is a more natural form of hormone replacement. Bioidentical hormones are plant-based hormones modified to have the same structure and function as the hormones produced by your body.
With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, the natural hormones restore balance to alleviate symptoms and improve overall health and well-being.
Who needs bioidentical hormone therapy?
The team at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado conducts comprehensive evaluations to determine the best candidates for bioidentical hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormone therapy is one of the functional medicine services available at the practice.
As you get older, the production of sex hormones decreases, including estrogen and progesterone in women and testosterone in men. These hormonal changes are part of the aging process but cause many of the symptoms that people associate with getting older, such as:
- Thinning hair
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Mood changes
- Dry skin
- Foggy thinking
- Memory loss
- Low energy
Hot flashes and night sweats are also common symptoms of declining sex hormone levels in women.
In addition to the physical symptoms, low estrogen and testosterone also affect bone health and increases the risk of osteoporosis, a bone condition that makes you more susceptible to fractures.
You may benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy replacement at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado if you’re experiencing these symptoms.
What happens at a bioidentical hormone therapy evaluation?
The Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado team performs a comprehensive evaluation when you come in with concerns about hormonal changes. Your provider asks questions about your symptoms, medical history, and family history.
They perform a physical exam and run blood work to assess your hormone levels. The team uses this information to determine if BioTE hormone pellet therapy makes the right choice for you.
What is BioTE hormone pellet therapy?
BioTE hormone pellet therapy is the type of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy available at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado. With BioTE, the team customizes your hormone pellet to match your unique hormone needs.
They place the pellet under the skin above your buttocks, which releases a steady stream of hormones to optimize levels, alleviate symptoms, and improve health. The team schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor responses and replace your pellet as needed.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is a natural hormone replacement option that can boost energy, improve mood, and help you feel more like your usual self.
