      Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Boca Raton, FL

      Hormone replacement therapy Boca Raton FL

      Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment that involves replacing hormones, typically estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone in individuals, to alleviate symptoms of hormonal imbalances or manage certain medical conditions.

      Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) involves using hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally produced by the body. These hormones, which can include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, are typically derived from plant sources. BHRT is compounded or customized by a pharmacist to suit an individual's specific hormonal needs.

      Potential Benefits include but are not limited to:

      • Improved mood
      • Improved libido
      • Resolution of hot flashes and vaginal dryness
      • Improved bone density
      • Improved elasticity of skin
      • Improved muscle mass

      The safety of HRT has been a subject of extensive research and debate, particularly in the context of menopausal women. While many individuals, including doctors, are concerned about the risks associated with the use HRT, especially cancer risk, the data indicates otherwise.

      Please read the article entitled, “Menopausal Hormone Replacement Therapy and Reduction of All-Cause Mortality and Cardiovascular Disease: It’s About Time and Timing”

      The following presents the highlights of the above article:

      1. Initiated in women <60 years of age and/or at or near menopause, HRT significantly reduces all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease (CVD) whereas other primary CVD prevention therapies such as lipid-lowering fail to do so.
      2. Magnitude and type of HRT-associated risks, including breast cancer, stroke and venous thromboembolism are rare (<10 events/10,000 women), not unique to HRT and comparable with other medications. On the other hand, in three independent meta-analyses of statin use (cholesterol lowering drugs) randomized controlled trials, incidence of breast cancer was 9%–33% greater with statin therapy than with placebo accounting for 2–7 additional breast cancers per 10,000 women per year of statin therapy.
      3. HRT is a sex-specific and time dependent primary CVD prevention therapy that concomitantly reduces all-cause mortality as well as other aging-related diseases with an excellent risk profile.

      At Institute for Healthy Aging, we require patients who are on BHRT to have their hormone levels checked at least every 4 months, requiring a minimum of 3 visits per year. These hormone level checks and patient visits help to ensure that you are receiving the optimal doses for both quality of life and safety.
