The human body can’t function without the contribution of hormones that control many of the body’s processes, such as metabolism, reproduction, and growth. The endocrine glands secrete hormones into the bloodstream and send messages throughout the body. Sometimes, for various medical reasons, the hormones produced by the endocrine system and distributed through the bloodstream are imbalanced. Too much or too little hormones may be secreted, which throws off the balance in your body. This can lead to a mess of chemical messages being sent to different parts of the body and a host of unwanted symptoms.
For a variety of reasons, men and women can experience deficiencies in estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. One of the most common causes of imbalance of hormones is aging. The older we get, the more likely we are to experience changes in hormone levels in our bodies. This can lead to a variety of unwanted symptoms, such as:
- Hot flashes, night sweats, and difficulty sleeping
- Vaginal dryness, loss of virility, and pain during intercourse
- Loss of energy, extreme fatigue, and irritable mood
- Bone mass loss, memory issues, difficulty concentrating, and weight gain
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Hormone therapy administered by a physician can fix hormone imbalance issues. Hormone therapy involves delivering artificial hormones into your body that are designed to mimic natural hormones your body is lacking. This treatment is known as bioidentical hormone therapy. This treatment is often administered through pellets, so the hormones can go directly into the bloodstream instead of having to go through the digestive system like food and oral medications.
Pellets are not only a convenient way to administer hormone therapy (refill replacements are only necessary 2 times a year), they offer consistency in treatment because a set amount of hormones are released according to your doctor’s instructions. This means you won’t accidentally forget to take the hormones one day or take too much by accident. As a result, you will have a consistent flow of hormones in the body, which is exactly what you need to maintain bodily functions.
Bioidentical hormone therapy involves injecting artificial hormones that closely match the natural hormones in your body. You can customize bioidentical hormones to fulfill deficiencies specific to your body. This makes the treatment extremely versatile because it can be useful for practically any patient.
