What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are a way for our patients to battle the effects of endocrine changes as they age. Menopause in women is one of the most well-known of these biological processes. However, there is another common condition known as andropause. Not only can andropause cause symptoms in both women and men, but it can also affect younger patients, as early as their 30s. Over time, the condition can worsen and symptoms can become more aggressive. We can also assess thyroid hormone levels and other markers in the human body that can be adjusted back to normal.
