Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, is a medication that contains hormones. It is used when hormone levels are low in the body and create unwanted symptoms. Bio-Identical hormones are compounds that are chemically altered in the laboratory to look and behave exactly like our own human hormones.
The physician creates a treatment plan designed to restore the Patient’s health based on hormone testing results. A prescription for Bio-identical hormones is compounded according to the Patient’s specific needs. Treatment plans may vary to include the lowest dose of hormones required and adjusts the dosage until symptoms have subsided and your lab tests have stabilized.
Once you start treatment, be sure to keep your prescriber abreast of your symptoms and if you experience any adverse effects. It may be necessary to retest the hormone levels from time to time, as many situations in life can impact our hormone levels. Your practitioner will be able to increase or decrease your dosages to keep you feeling your best.
