Are your hormones out of balance?

by Jhoney Parker A1 Call Center

Unbalanced hormones can make life difficult. Too much hormones or too little hormones can impact how we feel, think and act. For example, if you can remember your own puberty and hormones surge, it could have made you a very different person than today. Hormones affect many areas of your health. Not only can it affect mood, metabolism, sexual and reproductive function, it may also affect your heart, bones muscle and brain. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause or loss of ovaries from surgery, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. BHRT is a customized may of restoring your balance.

Different types of hormones

The most important hormones made by the ovaries are known as female sex hormones (sex steroids) – and the two main ones are oestrogen and progesterone. The ovaries also produce some of the male hormone,testosterone. In general, women produce 10% of testosterone produced by men. The adrenal glands produce DHEA and DHEA-S. These hormones can be compounded and delivered through compounding.

Hormone therapy designed specifically for your body

HRT is most often prescribed to ease the symptoms of menopause, but it also can be used to treat a variety of conditions that women of all ages may experience, including:

§  Moodiness

§  Weight gain

§  Sleep disturbances

§  Hot flashes

§  Night sweats

§  Decreased libido

§  Painful sexual intercourse

§  Vaginal dryness

§  Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)

§  Irregular menstrual cycle

§  Infertility

§  Post-partum depression

§  Endometriosis

§  Fibrocystic breasts

 

These conditions affect many women, especially in the perimenopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal years. As the number of women seeking hormone-related treatment has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches and creams by the drug industry. However, each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs, but commercially manufactured products tend to be “one-size-fits-all,” and do not always account for the differences between individuals. No two women are alike, of course, and we assess the patient and work with local compounding pharmacists to provide these from of specialized care.

 

At the Opal Medical Clinic, we carefully assess symptoms and measure blood levels of hormones to help us assess the need for each patient. We work with compounding pharmacist is to prepare customized medications for patients. The advantage of compounded Bioidentical Hormones Replacement Therapy in Houston is that it can be adapted specifically to fit each individual’s body and hormone levels. BHRT utilizes hormones that have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own.

Working closely with a woman, we can help a woman start and maintain a hormone replacement regimen that brings her hormones back into balance and closely mimics what her body has been doing naturally for years. Depending on your need, we will advise which types of preparations is best suited for you. For example, we can deliver the medication in these forms:

§  Capsules

§  Topical or vaginal creams, gels, and foams

§  Suppositories

§  Sublingual drops or troches

 

Once the therapy is begun, we will continue to monitor, measure and assess improvement in symptoms. We will also communicate with the compounding pharmacist to ensure that the BHRT is working correctly, and adjust the dosage if necessary, ensuring that the medication is just right for her body.
