About Female BHRT
Hormones are an important part of the body to keep all of our functions running in optimal condition. A normal and balanced level of hormones keeps us feeling young, healthy, and protects us from a variety of degenerative diseases. Most people feel like aging is inevitable and that nothing can be done. At The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity, board-certified physician Dr. Ian Levenson believes that women don't have to accept the physical and mental symptoms that accompany aging. Dr. Levenson is proud to offer custom bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for his female patients in Greenwood Village, CO. If you have any concerns or problems about aging, schedule a private consultation with Dr. Levenson at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village.
As you age, your body gradually produces fewer hormones and symptoms of menopause can interfere with your quality of life. Many of these symptoms can occur even before the onset of menopause:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Hair loss
- Increased body fat
- Low sexual desire
- Short-term memory loss
- Tiredness, fatigue
- Vaginal dryness
These changes also come with the increased risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. However, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help to balance your levels and improve your symptoms. If you have any of the above symptoms or concerns about aging, schedule a consultation with Dr. Levenson to learn more about a custom hormone replacement treatment.
Dr. Levenson has special training having studied under Dr. Gino Tutera, a pioneer in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). After a thorough consultation and medical examination (including blood tests to determine your current hormone levels), Dr. Levenson can create your custom bio-identical hormone replacement therapy plan. He can prescribe bio-identical hormones in the form of patches, creams, troches (mints that melt in your mouth), and subcutaneous pellets. Dr. Levenson will discuss the pros and cons of each therapy with you and choose the option that best suits your individual needs. However, the medical literature suggests that subcutaneous pellet delivery system delivers consistent, physiologic levels of hormones, which avoids the fluctuation of hormone levels seen in other methods.
