While menopause is the best-known cause of hormonal decline, both men and women experience the effects of declining hormone levels as they age. At Define… MaximumWellnessMD in Skippack, Pennsylvania, Gregory Bolton, Jr., MD and the team provide highly customized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets to replenish your hormone levels and reduce related symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, and weight gain. Call Define… MaximumWellnessMD or schedule a consultation online today to find out if BHRT is right for you.
What is BHRT?
As you age, your body produces fewer hormones. This can lead to symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, and mood swings. These symptoms can often disrupt your life and well-being and are often mistakenly accepted as part of aging. However, at Define… MaximumWellnessMD, Dr. Bolton offers BHRT to restore your hormonal balance, reduce or eliminate your symptoms, prevent long term medical, and restore your health.
BHRT is a highly customized treatment that replenishes your body with the exact hormones it’s missing. Unlike many providers who rely on mass-manufactured synthetic hormones, Dr. Bolton provides BHRT in custom-made pellets. He injects the pellets into your upper buttock, where they slowly release hormones into your body.
What conditions does BHRT treat?
Dr. Bolton, Jr. prescribes BHRT to restore hormonal balance and reduce symptoms and conditions including:
- Mood swings and irritability
- Depression and anxiety
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Weight gain
- Muscle mass loss
- Vaginal dryness and pain
- Painful sex
- Erectile dysfunction
Both men and women can benefit from BHRT. While menopause may receive more attention, men also experience declining hormone levels as they age and suffer from similar symptoms. For example, declining testosterone levels not only lead to libido loss, but also to decreased muscle mass which can impact your metabolism and lead to weight gain.
What should I expect during BHRT?
BHRT begins with a comprehensive consultation and physical exam including extensive blood tests to measure and assess your hormone levels. Dr. Bolton, Jr. asks questions about your symptoms, lifestyle, and overall well-being.
Once he’s gathered as much information as possible about your wellness, he works with a specialized compounding pharmacy to create BHRT pellets that include the precise hormones your body needs.
He injects the pellets into the skin of your upper buttock. Over the next few days and weeks, the pellets release hormones into your body, and your symptoms should subside. You have frequent follow-up appointments with the team at Define… MaximumWellnessMD to monitor your symptoms and hormone levels and adjust your BHRT dose, if necessary.
Am I a good candidate for BHRT?
If you’re living with symptoms of a hormone imbalance, BHRT may be an excellent treatment option to restore your health and well-being. You should contact Define… MaximumWellnessMD to talk to Dr. Bolton, Jr. about your symptoms and start the testing process to find out if BHRT will resolve your symptoms.
