Hormone replacement therapy to assist with hormone deficiency
Hormones are chemical substances produced by the endocrine system. Hormones coordinate the body’s organ systems to function together properly. Less hormones are produced as our body age. A dysfunctional endocrine system leads can lead to hormone deficiency or hormone problems in specific organs. However, the problem of hormone deficiency can be treated through hormone replacement therapy.
Solution to hormone problems
As mentioned above, hormone replacement therapy is an effective way to treat hormone deficiency. The therapy includes the provision of thyroid hormones, adrenal gland hormones or sexual hormones. The patients undergoing these treatments mostly suffer symptoms such as thyroid disorders, adrenal fatigue, sexual dysfunction, menopausal issues and more.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BIHRT)
Most of the widely available hormones used in hormone replacement therapies are synthetic hormones. These strong hormones oftentimes may cause side effects. Moreover, the dosage of synthetic hormones are commonly of the same amount, but in actual fact, each patient may need a different amount of hormones.
To achieve the best treatment results, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BIHRT) has been found to be the better solution. This is because the chemical structure of BIHRT is similar to that of natural hormones making it easily absorbable for the body.
BIHRT has the capability of rebalancing the hormones of patients who are suffering from hormone deficiency. They are highly efficient and safe, as long as it is used under the proper supervision of the treating physician. The treating physician will also determine the amount or dosage of the bioidentical hormone that an individual needs. In addition, patients are also required to undergo a thorough check-up process to analyze the proper hormone types and amount. The results will provide a more comprehensive diagnostics and in turn provide patients with an optimal level of treatment. As the saying goes, ”a balance body is a healthy body”.
