Hormonal Imbalance

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used to treat both men and women experiencing imbalances or drops in their naturally-occurring hormones. Hormones are responsible for most of your essential bodily functions, so when they are disrupted in any way, cascade effects across all your systems can ensue.

Hormones like Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, DHEA, and the three thyroid hormones are all critical for harmony in the body. Hormonal imbalance leads to many symptoms that include weight gain, hair loss, lack of energy, hot flashes, sleep disturbance, joint pain, headaches, night sweats, erectile dysfunction, and an overall decline in health.

Most commonly, BHRT is utilized to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, although we can use them to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Mental clarity
  • Low sex drive or libido
  • Incontinence
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Andropause
  • Fatigue
    Insulin resistance
  • Adrenal and thyroid
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia

Symptoms that are common with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, memory loss, weight gain, sleep issues, and low libido can be dramatically improved with BHRT. For many other conditions, BHRT can improve vitality, energy, mental clarity, mood, weight loss, and even muscle strength!

BHRT comes in several different forms, and at YoungerMeMD, we carefully take into consideration your symptoms, medical conditions, and history before making a recommendation for a specific treatment. Options may include:

BioTE® pellet therapy
Compounded natural hormones
Nutraceutical supplementation

Delivery of BHRT depends largely on the specific therapy option, but include:

  • Implanted pellets
  • Creams
  • Patches
  • Gels
  • Injections

Hormones are a vital part of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. No one needs to suffer the symptoms of hormone imbalance, and at YoungerMeMD, we are confident we can find the right solution for your unique needs.
