What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones refer to lab-made hormones designed to mirror the naturally occurring ones inside your body perfectly. Your doctor at Weight Loss and Vitality can recommend various types of bioidentical hormones, though the most common are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

Your doctor uses bioidentical hormone therapy to treat hormone imbalances and disorders. Your local pharmacist can prepare your bioidentical hormones, though your doctor can also procure FDA-approved alternatives.

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

During your appointment at Weight Loss and Vitality, your doctor discusses with you the best way of administering bioidentical hormones. Before recommending bioidentical hormone therapy, your doctor tests your hormone levels through your blood. This can help them determine which hormone needs supplementation.

They may decide on any of the following forms.

  • Tablets
  • Creams
  • Gels
  • Injections
  • Lotions

Based on your symptoms and condition, your doctor recommends the most suitable type of bioidentical hormone. In women’s health, bioidentical hormones are instrumental in restoring hormone levels that have plummeted due to aging, primarily menopause.

Your doctor might also recommend bioidentical hormones as part of a vaginal rejuvenation plan to help with vaginal moisture and atrophy.

You might benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy if you suffer from:

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Sarcopenia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Infertility
  • Endometriosis
  • Postpartum depression
  • Chronic fatigue

Your doctor might also recommend bioidentical hormones to help with:

  • Moodiness
  • Weight gain
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep issues
  • Symptoms of menopause
  • Low libido

If your doctor has determined that your hormone levels are too low, they might recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to avoid any further disruptions in your life and health.  In most cases, your doctor uses creams and tablets to replace your hormone levels.

A standard bio-identical hormone workup:

Typically involves several components to assess hormone levels and overall hormonal balance. While specific tests may vary depending on individual needs and practitioner preferences, the following are commonly included in a bio-identical hormone workup:

  1. Medical History: The healthcare provider will review your medical history, including symptoms, previous hormone therapy, and any relevant health conditions.

  2. Symptom Assessment: Detailed assessment of symptoms related to hormonal imbalances, such as hot flashes, mood swings, low libido, fatigue, etc.

  3. Blood Tests: Blood tests are conducted to measure hormone levels, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid hormones, cortisol, DHEA, and other relevant markers. These tests help identify any hormonal deficiencies or imbalances.

  4. Routine Physical Examination: A physical examination may be performed to assess signs of hormone-related conditions, or other relevant factors.

  5. Individualized Treatment Plan: Based on the results of the workup, a personalized treatment plan is developed, which may involve the use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to restore hormonal balance.

It's important to note that the specific tests and approaches used may vary depending on the healthcare provider's expertise and patient requests.
