Bio-Identical Hormone Replace Therapy

center for hormone replacement therapy in Orange CaliforniaBio Identical hormones are made to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. By contrast, synthetic hormones are intentionally different. Drug companies can’t patent a bioidentical structure, so they invent synthetic hormones that are patentable (Premarin, Prempro and Provera being the most widely used examples). Though bioidentical hormones have been around for years, most practitioners are unfamiliar with them. There are several branded versions now available for use in the kind of hormone replacement therapy (“HRT”) typical of synthetic hormones. This is generally a one-size-fits-all dosage regime.

At the Advance Center for Hormone Replace Therapy, we have had the greatest success with an individualized approach. We begin with laboratory tests of your baseline hormone levels (a so-called “hormone panel”). When warranted, we then prescribe a precise dosage of bioidentical estrogen, testosterone or DHEA that is specially formulated at a compounding pharmacy. Each patient is then monitored carefully through regular follow-up hormone panels to ensure that your hormone levels are maintained at optimum levels. In the initial stages, we will repeat some hormone levels as soon as a month into therapy to see how you are improving. This is correlated with how you feel and what changes you've experienced and adjustments are made. Once balance is restored at a steady state is achieved, some hormones can be monitored on a yearly or bi yearly basis.
