Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Your hormones are responsible for a lot of critical bodily functions. They affect everything from appetite and mood to reproduction and blood pressure. If hormones are imbalanced, this can severely affect your health and quality of life. Of course, as we get older, both men and women experience a drop in hormones. Everything from weight gain and hot flashes to fatigue and muscle loss can set in when this happens. Pompano Beach, FL, physicians at Innovation Medical Center provide bioidentical hormone pellet replacement therapy to counteract these effects.

What are bioidentical hormones?

    Bioidentical hormones are synthetic hormones structurally the same as the naturally occurring hormones in our body. Molecule by molecule, bioidentical hormones are the same as natural hormones despite being man-made in a laboratory. Common bioidentical hormones include progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, melanin and thyroid hormones.
