Hormone Therapy Q & A

Are the ways my body is changing with age normal?

Most likely. Aging comes with a wide range of unwelcome symptoms. For women, those changes are often linked with decreasing levels of estrogen as a result of menopause. For men, the body’s natural reduction in testosterone production as they age can change their physique, emotions, and sex life.

Your body’s changing hormone levels can have far-reaching implications on your life, including:

  • Poor sleep quality
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Mood changes
  • Reduction in libido

In short, the symptoms you’re noticing are caused by the natural decrease in your body’s hormone production as you age.

Am I stuck with these changes?

No. You don’t have to live with those dropping hormones and all the symptoms they can produce. At Genesis Family Healthcare, PLLC, Joe Reid II, PA-C, and his dedicated team offer men and women effective treatment for their body’s changing hormone levels.

Genesis Family Healthcare, PLLC offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to replace the hormones your body is no longer naturally producing, leveling your symptoms out and helping you feel like yourself again.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a treatment that replaces the hormones your body is no longer naturally producing with ones that are biologically identical to your natural hormones. That last part is key.

Bioidentical hormone replacements are specifically formulated to be identical to the testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone your body naturally produces. As a result, when they’re introduced into your body to make up for the deficit of hormones, your body can’t tell the difference between bioidentical hormone replacements and your natural hormones.

This makes BHRT an extremely effective tool in balancing your hormone levels as you age and restoring your quality of life.

How do I receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

BHRT is available in a variety of forms, including:

  • Patches
  • Creams and gels
  • Injections
  • Pellet implantations

To minimize side effects, Joe Reid II, PA-C, will help you find the lowest possible dose of BHRT needed to regulate your symptoms.
