Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Omaha
Both men and women can see significant hormone fluctuations as they begin to approach the middle years of life. These changes can result in a number of unpleasant symptoms, including:
- Low Sex Drive
- Mood Swings
- Depression and Anxiety
- Sleep Disruptions
- Weight Gain
To bring back the energy and vibrancy of youth, many adults are now turning to bio-identical hormones for help. These hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones in a man or woman’s body, so they are not typically accompanied by the same side effects as synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormones prescribed at Dr. Passer’s office in Omaha can effectively alleviate many of the symptoms listed above that have been attributed to a “natural” part of the aging process in the past.
Bioidentical Hormones for Women
Bioidentical hormones for women consist of a combination of progesterone, estrogen and testosterone. The specific amounts included in the formula will depend on the unique hormonal makeup of each individual patient. Bioidentical hormones are compounded to a patient’s specific needs, ensuring the patient only receives the hormones she is lacking – nothing more, nothing less.
Bioidentical Hormones for Men
Bioidentical hormones for men are not as well known, but they can be equally effective in combating some of the uncomfortable symptoms men can begin to experience in the middle years of life as well. Reduced testosterone levels can begin to affect men approaching the age of 50, resulting in low energy levels, moodiness and low libido. Bioidentical hormone therapy for men may replace energy and sex drive. Some men even find the additional dose of testosterone decreases joint pain and reverses hair loss.
Administration of Bioidentical Hormones
Bioidentical hormones may be administered through a variety of methods. The most common are by topical creams that allow the hormones to enter the bloodstream naturally. Transdermal creams also allow for slower entry into the bloodstream, which may minimize side effects from treatment.
