Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Everyone has hormones in their body, and these hormones control a wide variety of functions, such as:

  • Appetite
  • Mood
  • The immune system
  • Metabolism

If your hormones become unbalanced, you may need treatment, such as hormone replacement therapy, to help balance them out again.

The doctors at Optimum Physicians Healthcare PLLC in Houston and Pearland, Texas, use bioidentical hormone therapy to level out your hormones and relieve any symptoms you may have.

Unlike other types of hormone replacement therapies, bioidentical hormone therapies use hormones identical to what the body makes. Plus, the treatment is customized based on the hormone levels found in your saliva or blood.

What does bioidentical hormone therapy treat?

Bioidentical hormone therapy is often used to treat menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms in women. However, it can also relieve symptoms from many diseases and illnesses in both men and women, such as:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thyroid disorders

Bioidentical hormone therapy may also treat side effects that stem from cancer treatments.

What are symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

Both men and women can experience hormone imbalances. Symptoms include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Weight gain or unexplained, rapid weight loss
  • Dry skin
  • Thinning hair
  • Stiff, achy joints
  • Depression
  • Rounded, puffy face
  • Increased anxiety or irritability

Women may also experience symptoms related directly to them. For example, if menopause is triggering your hormone imbalance, you may experience stopped periods and vaginal dryness, among other symptoms.  

How does bioidentical hormone therapy work?

There are multiple ways doctors can administer bioidentical hormone therapy, including pills and injections. Doctors at Optimum Physicians Healthcare PLLC use BioTE therapy. This therapy involves inserting a pellet, usually in the upper buttock, that administers hormones throughout the day. This works to balance your hormones continuously.

Other methods may cause you to experience ups and downs between treatments, but the BioTE pellet method provides continuous symptom relief.

Hormone imbalance can cause a variety of symptoms that can be both painful and unsightly, but treatment can balance your hormone levels and provide lasting relief. Call Optimum Physicians Healthcare PLLC today to schedule an appointment, or use the online scheduling tool.
