As you age, there may come a point when you will need hormone replacement therapy due to declining hormone levels in the body. As these hormone shifts occur, you are likely to experience a wide range of symptoms, such as weight gain, hot flashes, mood swings, and decreased bone density. Traditionally, hormones are replaced using conventional hormone replacement therapy. However, you do have an alternative option with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. This form of therapy is considered to be safer and more effective as the hormones used are identical to human hormones, whereas, conventional hormones are not. Dr. Connie Casad offers bioidentical hormones in Dallas to restore your overall wellbeing.
Conventional vs. Bioidentical Hormones
Conventional hormone replacement therapy, also known as conventional HRT, involves the use of a commercial drug that contains both estrogen and a progestin. The estrogen used in the medication is derived from the urine of pregnant mares, while progestin is a synthetic hormone. As a result, conventional HRT is not identical to human hormones and cannot be customized for each patient. Due to this, conventional HRT is not fully effective for promoting your quality of life or helping you reach your therapy goals.
On the other hand, bioidentical hormone replacement, also known as BHRT, are derived from substances that are made in nature, not from synthetic labs. As a result, they are identical to human hormones while increasing the effectiveness as doses can be tailored to specific needs.
Through a thorough consultation and extensive lab testing, Dr. Connie Casad can define your current hormone levels to create a customized treatment plan. You will improve your quality of life and reach your therapy goals.
Depending on your exact needs for hormone replacement, there are several different types of hormones that can be used, each of which is derived from nature. By understanding how each hormone controls specific areas of the body and how they work with one another, Dr. Casad can find the ideal combination that is catered to your specific needs.
You can rest assured that your prescription will contain a custom-compound that is based on your individual needs. The supplements will be made by professional pharmacists who hold strict pharmaceutical standards in the supplement’s deign and application.
Overall, there is simply no comparison to conventional hormones as bioidentical hormones are clearly the safer and more effective option.
