What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Existing for over seventy years, bioidentical hormones have only recently come to the forefront of medicine in serving as valuable substitutes for human hormones. Chemically identical to human hormones, bioidentical hormones can help women and men suffering from hormonal deficiencies, dominances, or imbalances to correct their levels and escape the symptoms that can develop as a result of disproportionate hormones. Greatly differing from other forms of hormone replacement, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is unique in many ways, and some of the unique benefits it provides include:
Previous forms of hormone replacement only offered a single dose of a hormone for all types of different imbalances or deficiencies. This one-size-fits-all approach is exactly the opposite of the customized approach used with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Exact levels of hormones are given to fit unique deficits or imbalances, and this allows men and women to optimize their hormone levels instead of receiving an excessive or insufficient amount of a particular hormone.
Identical to human hormones, bioidentical hormones are easily taken into the body, recognized, accepted, and used. Bioidentical hormones fit into a cell receptor site much like a key fits into a lock, unlike hormones that are not identical to human hormones. Non-identical hormones may only be partially recognized in the body, which can cause them to attach to cell receptor sites that they do not belong to, blocking the sites for the body’s own hormones.
Few to No Side Effects
Proper dosing of bioidentical hormones and exactly matching the hormones made in the body allows bioidentical hormones to function the same way that human hormones behave in the system. This can prevent side effects that may include bloating, water retention, breast tenderness, headaches, and fatigue.
Bioidentical hormones are often synthesized from soy or yam products, unlike other forms of hormones that are taken from animals. Hormones from animals are not identical to the hormones in the human body, which can lead to a number of adverse effects. This has led to strong interest in the use of naturally compounded Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Compounding is preparing medicines tailored to each patient’s individual needs and offers them their choice of drug, strength and dosage.
Because the body is comprised of numerous essential hormones, the levels of all essential hormones should be checked before beginning a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy plan. Intricately woven together, imbalances in one hormone inevitably affect another. Dr. Nhi Le will determine deficiencies and imbalances. Some of the hormones that can be replaced using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
Bioidentical hormone pellets can deliver consistent, stable levels of hormones for three to six months. There are no fluctuations in hormone levels as commonly seen with oral and topical delivery methods. This lack of fluctuation explains why pellets can be more effective in treating certain conditions and symptoms. Pellets are great for patients that can’t tolerate oral hormone therapy or don’t respond to oral or topical bioidentical hormone therapy.

Dr. Le at Texas Medical Wellness Clinic will perform significant testing to determine hormone levels and then assess imbalances, deficiencies, and dominances. Upon taking a full medical history, listening to the patient’s goals, and assessing lifestyle habits, Dr. Le will then design a personalized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy plan for you. Nhi Le, M.D. offers bioidentical hormones in the form of pellets, creams, capsules, pills, gels and patches with delivery method being the preferred choice of the patient.
