 Bio-Identical Hormones for Men and Women

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is now available to women in Bio-identical compounds usually made from soy or yams. Bio-identical hormones are compounded in certain pharmacies specifically to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) differs from conventional hormone replacement therapy, which uses animal (pregnant horse urine in some) or synthetic hormones by using whole natural structures that are identical to those produced in the human body.

Dr. Lewis takes a very scientific and individualized approach to Hormone Replacement Therapy. He begins with laboratory tests of hormone levels (a “hormone panel.”) If BHRT is indicated, he prescribes a precise combination of bio-identical estrogens, progesterone and testosterone.

Dr. Lewis also tests your DHEA, (dehydroepiandrosterone) levels and if necessary prescribes DHEA . DHEA is an endogenous hormone secreted by the adrenal gland. DHEA serves as precursor to male and female sex hormones. DHEA in the body begins to decline after age 30.

Each patient is carefully monitored through regular follow-up hormone panels to ensure patients get symptom relief. A few of the first physical changes a BHRT patient may notice (especially if switching from traditional HRT,) is a reduction in bloating , mood elevation, skin texture improvement and increased libido.

Your Doctor can perform tests to determine if you have Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and prescribe a method of treatment best for your individual needs.
