Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones? 

AllCare Internal Medicine provides bioidentical hormone therapy using hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones your body makes naturally. Bioidentical hormones are a safer and more natural option than hormones.

Bioidentical hormones are made from natural plant compounds (typically yams or soybeans). Bioidentical hormones work in the exact same way as your natural hormones.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a natural treatment specially designed to replenish important hormones your body no longer produces enough of, such as estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Replenishing these hormones can improve your quality of life and restore hormonal balance.

Dr. Kathleen Gerace will help men dealing with symptoms of andropause and pre- and post-andropause, and women dealing with symptoms of menopause and pre- and post-menopause. Hormonal imbalance can lead to numerous complications and symptoms for men and women, such as irritability and mood disorders, poor sleep, fatigue, sexual dysfunction, wrinkles and fine lines, and dry skin.

At AllCare Internal Medicine, your provider can administer hormone therapy in different ways, such as a topical gel, cream, or pellet insertion. 

Dr. Kathleen Gerace inserts the hormone pellet in the fatty layer under your skin in your upper buttocks. Over time, the pellet secretes hormones that are absorbed into your bloodstream. You might have a hormonal imbalance due to certain medications and diseases, surgeries, aging, and other factors.

What advantages does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offer?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Protection from arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Increased bone density
  • Protective qualities for uterine, ovarian, prostate, and breast cancer
  • Improved cardiovascular health
  • Symptom relief
  • Often improves dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles 

Hormone replacement therapy isn’t right for everyone, as there may be risks associated with it among some populations. Dr. Kathleen Gerace will help you determine the best treatment for your symptoms and long-term health.

With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using the convenience of pellets, you don’t have to think about it for months as the pellet will do the work for you. For around three to four months in women and around four to five months in men, the pellets secrete healthy levels of hormones to enhance your health and wellness. Hormone replacement therapy can be life-changing.
