Age Healthier and Live Happier!
Men and women who want to alleviate the symptoms of hormonal imbalances may prefer the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Betsy Horton, MD, of Omega MedSpa offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) treatments for residents in Atlanta, Fayetteville, Peachtree City, Newnan, Eagles Landing, Hampton, LaGrange, and surrounding communities in Georgia.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Hormone replacement therapy can be achieved with synthetic or bioidentical replacement hormones. Advances in hormone therapies have revealed that many of the unwanted side effects of traditional hormone replacement were caused by a mismatch between the synthetic formulations and the natural hormones in the body. Bioidentical hormones are derived from sources that are well-matched to those found in the human body; therefore, patients who utilize bioidentical hormone replacement therapy tend to have fewer unwanted side effects while more appropriately managing their hormone levels.
About BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy
Using tiny pellets under the skin, BioTE® optimizes hormone levels. BioTE® pellet therapy is for men and women. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants has proven to be very effective. The implants are placed under the skin and consistently release small doses of hormones. The method provides sustained hormone release, which means you avoid the aggressive up and down mood swings that are commonly associated with hormone level fluctuations.
Benefits of BHRT
The primary benefit of BHRT is that the molecular structure of the supplements more closely matches what occurs naturally in your body. This may lead to fewer side effects and a greater degree of hormone replacement. Dr. Horton offers the treatments to men and women.
How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
Dr. Horton determines which bioidentical hormone replacement therapies are right for you, including the dosage. She may recommend oral supplements, gels, creams and other delivery methods. The specific form of delivery influences the delivery of the bioidentical hormones into your system. You should follow her recommendations closely to get the greatest benefit from BHRT.
Am I a Candidate for BHRT?
Hormonal imbalances tend to appear with similar symptoms in men and women. You may be a candidate for BHRT if you notice:
- Unexplained weight gain
- Feeling tired and fatigued
- Changes in mood and mood swings
- Reduced sex drive
- Being unable to sleep
- Losing your hair
- Problems with memory and concentration
- Little to no energy
These symptoms may be associated with an underlying condition, such as thyroid dysfunction and metabolic issues. Dr. Horton reviews your medical history to determine if you also need treatment for any other medical conditions.
What to Expect from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Improving hormone levels takes time, and Dr. Horton may recommend a conservative treatment initially. You should take the BHRT supplements as recommended, even if you do not notice a change in your symptoms.
