      What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

      Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment designed to replace essential hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone in patients experiencing hormonal imbalances or specific health conditions. This therapy plays a key role in easing symptoms linked to these imbalances, improving overall health and well-being.

      Taking it a step further, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) offers a more tailored approach by using hormones that are identical on a molecular level to those our bodies naturally produce. These bioidentical hormones, usually derived from plant materials, include varieties of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. BHRT treatments are custom-made by pharmacists to match an individual’s specific hormonal needs, offering a personalized way to balance hormones.

      What are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?

      Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) offers many benefits that can improve a patient's quality of life and alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. Here are some of the potential benefits:

      • Improves Mood
      • Improves Libido
      • Resolves Hot Flashes and Vaginal Dryness
      • Improves Bone Density
      • Improves Elasticity of Skin

      BHRT at the Institute for Healthy Aging in Boca Raton, FL

      At the Institute for Healthy Aging, we prioritize a comprehensive and cautious approach to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), ensuring that each patient's journey toward hormonal balance is both safe and customized to their specific needs.

      Initial Assessment for New BHRT Patients

      The journey begins with a detailed evaluation to assess any risks associated with breast, uterine, and cervical cancer before starting BHRT. We meticulously review each patient's genetic background, including BRCA 1/2 mutations family history, and ensure they are current with routine cancer screenings such as mammograms, ultrasounds, and PAP smears. If BHRT is a good fit, we then conduct an in-depth analysis of the patient's menopausal symptoms and signs. This involves ordering comprehensive blood tests to measure current estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA levels, which guides us in tailoring the BHRT prescription to the individual's needs.

      Follow-Up and Monitoring Post-BHRT Initiation

      Our commitment to patient safety and treatment efficacy extends beyond the initial prescription. We insist on regular follow-ups, which can be conducted in person or via telehealth appointments, to closely monitor hormone levels and adjust dosages as necessary. Hormone level assessments are conducted approximately every three and a half months, followed by a consultation to discuss the results and any adjustments to the treatment plan. This rigorous monitoring protocol ensures that each patient maintains an optimal and safe hormone balance.

      Preferred Delivery Methods for BHRT

      Recognizing that every individual's body responds differently, we offer a variety of BHRT delivery methods to accommodate personal preferences and ensure the most effective absorption. Our clinic provides:

      • Hormone Creams/Gels: Topically applied, these are absorbed through the skin, offering a convenient and non-invasive option for hormone therapy.
      • Hormone Troches: These are small tablets dissolved under the tongue, allowing for direct absorption into the bloodstream.
      • Hormone Pellets: Implanted under the skin in the buttock area, pellets provide a steady release of hormones over time, minimizing the need for daily treatment.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Is BHRT Safe?

      Yes, BHRT has been shown to be safe. Research from 30 randomized clinical trials found that HRT reduced all-cause mortality by 39% and decreased coronary heart disease by 32% among women under 60 years old or those who are less than 10 years past menopause.

      Is BHRT Expensive?

      BHRT is designed to be affordable for our patients. For specific pricing details, we encourage you to contact our office.

      What Side Effects Might I Experience?

      The most common side effect associated with estrogen is breast or nipple tenderness, and in some cases, it may induce a menstrual period in post-menopausal women. Should these or any side effects occur, we address the issue promptly by adjusting the estrogen dosage.

      What are Additional Benefits of HRT?

      In addition to those mentioned earlier, benefits include improved concentration and focus, decreased all-cause mortality, and a general enhancement in the quality of life.

      At the Institute for Healthy Aging, we are dedicated to providing our patients with personalized care that meets their needs. BHRT represents a significant advancement in managing hormonal imbalances, offering a natural and effective way to restore balance and improve overall well-being.

      HRT Research Study Highlights

      Please read the article “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:

      • Effectiveness: HRT significantly lowers the risk of mortality and cardiovascular disease in women under 60 or close to menopause, surpassing other CVD prevention methods like lipid-lowering treatments.
      • Low Risk: The risks associated with HRT (breast cancer, stroke, venous thromboembolism) are minimal (<10 events/10,000 women), similar to other medications. In contrast, statin therapy increased breast cancer risk by 9%-33% compared to placebo.
      • Comprehensive Benefits: HRT offers targeted CVD prevention, reduces mortality, and addresses aging-related conditions, maintaining an excellent safety profile.

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