Bio Identical Hormone Therapy

Aging is an inevitable life process; we will all go through it. However, the quality of life you live during this period depends on how you manage the symptoms of aging. Hormonal imbalance or reduction in the level of vital hormones in the body is a significant aging challenge.

To help you prevent symptoms of hormonal decrease or imbalance from disrupting your quality of life, here at London Cosmetic Clinics, we offer Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy.

Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is a treatment that observes your condition and replaces your low or imbalanced hormones with hormones that are identical to hormones produced by your body. We are confident that with our high level of professionalism and partnership with experienced doctors in the field of hormonal therapy, we will help you get rid of your symptoms.
 

Why do you need Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?

Although older men also experience the symptoms of hormonal imbalance or low hormones, the condition is common in women at the perimenopause and menopause stages. Hormones are chemicals secreted by the endocrine glands. Hormones affect the body system and a lot of body functionalities. They direct how and when several parts of the body function. As such, a lower level of hormones or slight imbalance can wreak havoc in the body.

As you age, the amount of hormones produced by the endocrine glands decreases or slows down. In some cases, the body slowly metabolizes hormones, or tissues controlled by hormones may become less sensitive to the hormones controlling them. When all these occur, the body will begin to malfunction. You may start experiencing some of the following symptoms as a woman:

  • Anxiety or depression
  • Hand numbness or tingling
  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain
  • Skin wrinkling
  • Mood swing
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of interest in sex
  • Painful sex
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes

As a man, symptoms of hormonal imbalance and low levels of hormone include:

  • Prostate inflammation
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low sperm count
  • Lower libido
  • Mood swing
  • Lower strength
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of memory
  • Adult acne
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety and depression

To eliminate the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance or a decrease in hormonal level, you need to find a way to fix your hormones.

Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is a treatment that corrects the hormonal imbalance and increases the level of hormones in the body. This therapy involves using hormones that resemble natural body hormones to increase the level of hormones or correct hormonal imbalance.

In most cases, the hormones replaced or supplemented are progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone. However, bio-identical hormone therapy can replace or balance other hormones such as;

  • Oestrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Cortisol
  • Melatonin
  • Vitamin D
  • Thyroid
  • DHEA

Drug companies premake some bioidentical hormones, and you can purchase them through prescription. Some are also custom-made and they are called compounded  bio identical hormones. Compounded bioidentical hormones are hormones explicitly made for an individual by pharmacists based on a doctor’s prescription. After the doctor has examined you, these hormones are specifically formulated to meet your needs.

Bioidentical hormones can be in the form of;

  • Pills
  • Pellets
  • Cream
  • Gels
  • Patches

 

Procedure

The first stage of the treatment is consultation. Our highly experienced doctors will listen to your concerns and symptoms. After the consultation, we will collect a small amount of your blood sample for testing. We will send your blood sample to our world-renowned Bioidentical partner lab for testing.

If the blood test detects a hormonal imbalance, our doctors will prescribe a suitable bio-identical hormone and create a treatment plan that suits your medical need. We also offer some follow-up treatments to monitor your health progress. The follow-up treatments may involve another series of blood or saliva tests to ascertain the balance in your hormone or increment throughout treatment.

Depending on the type of treatment plan created for you, you may need to take the hormones as pills, cream, patches, gel, or pellets. You should use hormones based on the prescribed dosage and form. In the case of bio-identical hormone pellets, you need a separate appointment to get them carefully implanted beneath your skin. The implantation will be done meticulously in our state of art clinic by our expert doctors.

If you use the prescribed hormones in the correct dosage, the body will gradually absorb the hormones.
