Bioidentical Hormones replacement Arden, NC

Introduction to Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones naturally produced in the human body. As we age, hormone levels often decline, leading to unpleasant symptoms. Replacing deficient hormones with bioidentical versions can often eliminate these symptoms and help people feel more youthful and energetic.

What Causes Hormone Deficiencies?

There are several potential causes of hormone deficiencies:

Assessing Hormone Levels

Because hormones work together in complex ways, testing hormone levels through blood, saliva, or urine samples is crucial for identifying deficiencies. Based on test results, bioidentical hormones can be prescribed at customized doses to restore optimal levels.

Some key hormones that may require testing and replacement include:

Estrogen

Essential for female health. Deficiencies can cause hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood changes, sleep troubles. Too much estrogen also creates an imbalance.

Progesterone

Works together with estrogen in females. Imbalances can lead to weight gain, anxiety, irregular periods.

Testosterone

Vital for both men and women. Low testosterone contributes to low libido, fatigue, loss of muscle mass in both genders.

Thyroid - T3 and T4

Regulates metabolism. Low levels lead to weight gain, fatique. High levels cause anxiety, insomnia, rapid heartbeat.

DHEA

Precursor of estrogen and testosterone. Deficiencies correlate with loss of bone density, muscle mass and may inhibit weight loss.

Bioidentical Estrogen and Progesterone

For women, balancing both estrogen and progesterone is very important. Declining progesterone is actually key indicator of perimenopause - the transition into menopause.

Estrogen is essential for heart health, bone density, skin elasticity, and healthy sexual function. Low estrogen causes hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, irritability, difficulty sleeping and concentrating.

Progesterone works synergistically with estrogen. Declines in progesterone lead to estrogen dominance, promoting weight gain, anxiety, PMS, irregular periods, and more.

Balancing these two key hormones alleviates short-term symptoms while promoting long-term health. Our doctors can determine optimal ratios through testing.

Bioidentical Testosterone Therapy

Declining testosterone afflicts both men and women as they age. For men, "low T" causes loss of muscle mass, weight gain, low libido, fatigue, and erectile dysfunction. In women, low testosterone contributes to low sex drive and orgasm difficulties along with fat gain and low energy.

Our clinic specializes in bioidentical testosterone therapy for both men and women. We customize dosage levels and delivery methods - including creams, injections, pellets, or gels - based on each patient's needs for restoring testosterone to optimal levels. Increased energy, sex drive, strength and endurance are commonly reported benefits.

Thyroid Hormones: T3 and T4

The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate metabolism. Low levels cause weight gain, constant fatigue, dry skin, sensitivity to cold. High levels lead to sudden weight loss, rapid heartbeat, difficulty sleeping. Restoring balance is crucial.

At Vitality Renewal Clinic, we test and supplement thyroid hormones including both T3 and T4. Deficiencies in T3 are quite common, causing ongoing low energy even if T4 levels test normally. Our integrative regimens address the need for balanced T3 and T4 to alleviate hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism symptoms.

DHEA Restores Youthful Hormone Levels

DHEA provides precursor hormones from which the body manufactures testosterone, estrogen, and other hormones. Peaking around age 25, DHEA declines with age. Low levels correlate with loss of bone density, muscle mass, and inhibits healthy metabolism and weight management.

We test DHEA and can prescribe bioidentical DHEA to restore levels to a youthful state. Patients often report increased energy levels, better ability to manage weight, enhanced immunity, improved mood and mental sharpness, and better overall wellness from optimizing DHEA levels.

Lifestyle Factors for Improving Hormone Health

In addition to bioidentical hormone replacement provided by our clinic, we also offer lifestyle guidance for improving hormone health naturally including:
