Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) involves replacing hormones that decrease due to aging. Dr. Jayne only uses natural hormones for replacement because the synthetic hormones are associated with increased risks for problems. Therapy is tailored to each individual after an initial consultation where the medical history is reviewed and a pertinent examination is performed.
Baseline laboratory work is done and a follow-up visit is scheduled. Written information regarding BHRT is provided for review prior to follow-up. At the follow-up visit, lab results are reviewed and treatment recommendations are made with instructions for the proper administration of BHRT. Questions regarding therapy are answered. Prescriptions are provided for local or mail-in pharmacies or a compounding pharmacy. Another visit is scheduled to monitor the response to therapy and will involve repeat lab testing to assure close monitoring.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
While hormones can become imbalanced at any age in women, they most often become imbalanced during the reproductive years, perimenopause, and menopause. During the reproductive years, hormones commonly become imbalanced due to stress, lifestyle habits, lack of sleep, and overwork. However, in youthful women, imbalances often correct themselves because younger bodies heal faster and can rectify imbalances more effectively. As women age, it becomes more difficult for the body to fix innate issues, and as hormone levels drop, women often experience symptoms of age related hormone decline.
Initial phases of ovarian hormone decline bring about the phase of perimenopause, which leads to symptoms that include fatigue, lack of motivation, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, infertility, anovulation, headaches, increased PMS symptoms, bloating, water retention, and migraines. Hormones such as estrogen and progesterone can be restored with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to reduce the symptoms of Perimenopause.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in women most commonly occurs after menopause and involves balancing estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid hormone, DHEA and Vitamin D. Balancing these can significantly improve the following symptoms:
- Hot Flashes
- Mood Swings
- Vaginal Dryness
- Painful Intercourse
- Sleep Disturbances
- Night Sweats
- Memory problems
- Weight Gain
- Decreased Libido
- Skin and Hair Problems
- Irregular periods
- Premenstrual Symptoms
BHRT in women may also help to decrease blood pressure and reduce plaque formation on the arterial walls, reduce the risk and or the severity of Type 2 Diabetes, reduce bone loss, reduce the risk of colorectal cancer and increase HDL (good cholesterol) while lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Starting in the thirties, male hormone production begins to decline at a rate of around one percent each year, and by the time men reach their early forties or fifties, hormone levels plummet. Testosterone, which is the primary male hormone, is produced in the testicles and partly in the adrenal glands, and while aging is the most prevalent reason for reduced testosterone production, factors such as stress, poor dietary factors, excessive alcohol intake, or prescription medication can lead to imbalanced or deficient hormone levels.
Andropause is the phase of male hormone decline that occurs when men enter into middle age and cannot make the levels of androgens that they produced during youth. Reduced hormone levels in men is associated with the following:
- Loss of Strength
- Disturbed Sleep
- Heart Disease
- Low Testosterone
- Decreased Libido
- Slow Wound Healing
- Prostate problems
- Low Sperm Count
- Reduced Muscle Mass
- Memory Impairment
- Impaired Blood Cell Formation
- Reduced Cognitive Function
Balancing hormone levels will help significantly with the above symptoms and may be associated with beneficial changes in fatigue, impotence, blood pressure, cholesterol, muscle mass, bone density as well as helping to protect against heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease.
