Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

Texas Anti-Aging Medicine Institute

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones made in a woman’s body. Unlike their synthetic predecessors, bioidentical hormones are made from a plant extract derived from yams and/or soy. These extracts are processed in a medical lab to exactly duplicate the natural hormones’ structure.

What are the advantageous of bioidentical hormones?

The body is unable to tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and those naturally produced in the body.  That means these newer hormones are safer than traditional, synthetic versions. Another major advantage is that bioidentical hormones can be precisely monitored via blood and saliva tests. As a result, dosages are easily customized for every patient. Too, they are more easily absorbed by the body compared to synthetic hormones.

How can bio-identical hormone therapy help me?

Most women experience serious, even debilitating symptoms as a result of the decrease in the female sex hormones, estrogen, and progesterone, that accompany menopause. By replacing these hormones with bioidentical versions, women not only enjoy relief from these symptoms but reap increased energy and strength and a diminished risk of age-related conditions, such as osteoporosis.

What is Dr. Davis’s approach to bio-identical hormone therapy?

The key to bio-identical hormone therapy at the Texas Anti-Aging Medicine Institute is a custom approach. Dr. Davis begins with a thorough exam, that includes taking a complete family history, physical exam, and blood tests. She will also offer education on exercise, diet, and stress reduction, to ensure ongoing and optimal health and wellness.

Do Men Need Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Some men do. The male sex hormone, testosterone, starts to decrease by 1% a year once a man hits age 30. For men, this causes symptoms including a loss of muscle mass, weight gain, mood swings and problems with sexual function and desire. For these men, hormone replacement therapy offers immense benefits.
