First, BHRT most commonly treats the symptoms of menopause. However, other conditions result in a decrease in hormone production. Some of these conditions are: insulin resistance, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, and adrenal disorders.
From injections to creams, these hormones can be delivered to the body in several forms according to their purpose. In some cases, pellet therapy can be used to deliver the hormone over a period of time. A “pellet” is inserted through an incision in the skin, where it is placed to slowly metabolize over time.
Additionally, bioidentical hormones enter the system through patches, creams, gels, pills, or injections.
The method of delivery will depend on the hormone and the cause for which it is needed.
Hormones produced by drug companies, like estradiol, a bioidentical estrogen, are FDA approved. Other bioidentical hormones, such as those prepared in compounding pharmacies are not FDA approved. While these hormones may not be FDA-approved, that doesn’t mean that they’re unsafe.
The advantage of a compounded hormone is that it’s formulated according to the individual’s needs. Beyond that, hormones can be combined to produce a therapy that treats multiple causes for symptoms.
Many women use conventional hormone replacement therapy to treat the symptoms of menopause. Interestingly enough, these hormones are derived from the urine of pregnant horses or other animals.
Unlike bioidentical hormones, these synthetic hormones may cause unwanted side effects.
Hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, weight gain, and night sweats cause significant discomfort to women who are in menopause. Not to mention, memory issues like “brain fog” plague many other women. Luckily, bioidentical hormones may provide much needed relief.
