Both men and women experience the effects of unbalanced hormones, with most people experiencing moderate discomfort from it. The imbalance can happen at any time, although it is more closely associated with hypogonadism in men and menopause in women. Common symptoms for people of both genders include:
- Problems with concentration
- Lower sex drive
- Weight gain
- Loss of muscle tone
In addition, people may experience problems unique to their gender. For men, this may include erectile dysfunction and loss of body hair while women may experience vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. The best thing you can do is take stock of your symptoms and seek treatment from a doctor who specializes in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. These hormones are derived from soy and yams, both of which are naturally occurring sources. The ingredients used in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can’t be patented because they are created for people individually based on their presenting symptoms and genetic makeup.
Bioidentical hormones closely match the chemical structure of the hormones produced by your body. In contrast, synthetic or chemical hormones are made from artificial sources. While they may offer some relief, there is also a greater likelihood of side effects. Unlike natural hormones that are easily absorbed, your body may see synthetic hormones as a threat and put up natural defenses to protect you from them. If you’re interested in exploring a different and more promising approach, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Sani, an experienced Santa Clara Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy specialist.
Types of Bioidentical Hormones
Your Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Doctor Sani may choose to use one or several types of bioidentical hormones based on your symptoms and your initial response to the therapy.
The term estrogen actually describes the functioning of estradiol, estriol, and estrone. Estrogen is primarily a female hormone produced in the ovaries, fat tissue, or adrenal glands. Men also create small amounts of estrogen in their testes. As girls go through puberty, the proper levels of estrogen help to ensure breast development and a healthy uterine lining for future menstruation and pregnancy. Estrogen in male puberty causes deepening of the voice, growth of facial hair, and muscle development.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
Healthy levels of HGH contribute to bone density and strength, increased muscle mass, and a strong immune system. Balancing levels of HGH in the body has been shown to improve sleep patterns, increase energy, and jump-start weight loss in addition to improving the other symptoms associated with it. Although initially used exclusively in children who failed to reach the expected height for their age due to disorders of the pituitary gland, the use of HGH has expanded to include treatment for other types of hormonal imbalance.
Without progesterone, your body cannot produce the other hormones it needs. This includes estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol. Your body produces progesterone naturally from cholesterol and then turns it into pregnenolone, which in turn helps to produce the other hormones. It is integral for strong brain functioning, regulating blood sugar, having a healthy libido, and regulation the production of thyroid hormones.
This primarily male hormone is also present in smaller amounts in women. Both genders experience the effects of too little testosterone, including weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, depression, and low sex drive. In addition, men with unbalanced testosterone levels may experience unwanted breast growth.
The thyroid is a tiny gland in your neck that controls all of the functions of your adrenal system. When your body produces too much or too little thyroid hormone, you may experience weight gain, depression, fatigue, cold sensations, hot flashes, and many other unpleasant symptoms. Restoring thyroid hormone balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men and women to prevent the symptoms associated with low thyroid hormone.
Omeed Sani, M.D. will perform testing on the levels of all major hormones in order to develop a customized treatment plan that will address the patient’s chief complaint. As a Santa Clara Bioidentical Doctor will take the patient’s individual genetics, medical history, and symptoms into account when devising a treatment plan. Dr. Sani offers Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy prescriptions in the form of pellets, which fit comfortably under the skin and deliver a steady stream of hormones into the blood at all times. Each hormone pellet is slipped painlessly under the skin, typically in the hip. A mild, local anesthetic is used, and the procedure is very quick with no down time.
Dr. Sani can tailor prescriptions to fit individual needs, and patients will receive continued support through emails and phone calls. Just as important as the evaluation and the program recommendations is a disciplined follow-up. Patients will have a follow-up appointment with Doctor Sani every three months, at which time the vital signs, hormone levels, and body fat will be reviewed, and patients discuss whatever positive changes or side effects they may have experienced. Blood tests are usually performed every 3 months during the first year and every 6-12 months after that.
