Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT, is generally used to treat perimenopause in women and periandropause in men. Some of the symptoms that a woman is in perimenopause include: anxiety, irritability, depression, emotional swings, food cravings, hot flashes, fatigue, urine leakage, vaginal dryness and changes in libido. In men, some of these same symptoms may be also be present; however most men experience symptoms such as muscle weakness, problems with memory and concentration, loss of confidence, changes in libido, and erectile dysfunction.
Did you know that an underactive thyroid can make weight loss more difficult, and in some cases even make you gain weight? For this reason we require routine blood work in order to check thyroid hormone levels (as well as other health risk factors) to ensure proper function. In addition to BHRT, our physician also provides thyroid replacement therapy for patients on our program with clinical hypothyroidism.
