Do I need hormone replacement therapy?

If you are struggling with the signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance or another hormone-related condition, there’s a good chance that hormone replacement therapy may be able to give you some much-needed relief. Some of the most common symptoms associated with hormone imbalance, which is attributed to menopause, andropause, stress, or an underlying medical condition, include:

  • Mood changes
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Low energy
  • Hot flashes
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight changes
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Loss of bone density
  • Thinning hair/hair loss
  • Menstrual cycle changes (women)
  • Erectile dysfunction (men)

What’s the difference between BHRT and HRT?

Many patients are familiar with traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which utilizes synthetic hormones. For patients who prefer a more natural approach to hormone therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a particularly attractive option. Not only does BioTE BHRT contain plant-based hormones that are custom-compounded to identically mimic the body’s naturally occurring hormones, but it also offers several potential benefits when compared with traditional HRT. These may include:

  • Faster results
  • More reliable results
  • More consistent results
  • Longer-lasting results
  • Custom-compounding options

Due to its customized, plant-based structure and unique pellet delivery system, the BioTE collection of BHRT medications can be easily absorbed by the body and offers long-lasting, consistent relief without the ups and downs associated with many traditional HRT medications.

Can men take BioTE?

When you think of hormone imbalance, menopause in women may be the first thing that comes to mind. However, millions of men struggle with age-related testosterone decline, formally known as andropause. With bioidentical hormone replacement using BioTE, men and women alike can restore their hormone levels to the normal physiologic range and feel comfortable, confident, and fulfilled once again. It is also worth noting that BHRT can be a fitting option for younger men and women struggling with hormone imbalance as well, which may be due to stress, medications, underlying medical conditions, and other factors.

During your initial consultation for hormone replacement therapy in Orange County, Dr. Kelishadi will discuss your symptoms and concerns at length, take a thorough health history, explain all of your available options, and determine whether BioTE BHRT may be right for you.
