Renew Youth only uses bioidentical hormones in San Francisco CA for menopause treatment
The hot flashes and mood swings that come with menopause have become a joke in today’s society. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, however, you know they are no laughing matter. Renew Youth can help you find relief. We specialize in creating personalized treatment plans to address your unique symptoms. One of the most powerful tools for doing this is hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones in San Francisco CA.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are indistinguishable from the natural hormones your body should be producing. Synthetic hormones, however, have somewhat different chemical structures and are not accepted as well by the body. Use of synthetic hormones has been shown to increase certain risk factors for negative outcomes. For example, the synthetic form of progesterone, progestin, has been linked to increased risk of breast cancer. Bioidentical progesterone, on the other hand, has actually been shown to decrease the risk of this cancer. At Renew Youth, we are committed to providing the very best care for our patients and that’s why we use bioidentical hormones in San Francisco CA exclusively.
Using Bioidentical Hormones in San Francisco CA Safely and Correctly
In order for bioidentical hormones in San Francisco CA to be effective in relieving menopause symptoms, they must be used correctly as part of a high-quality treatment program. Here are the key elements of a quality treatment protocol:
- Individualized dosages: Patients should not be prescribed bioidentical hormones in San Francisco CA on a one size fits all basis. Instead, you should have your hormone levels tested prior to treatment and your dosages tailored to your specific needs.
- Balancing of all relevant hormones: Hormone deficiency of any kind cannot be treated in a vacuum. At Renew Youth, we test for multiple different hormones that affect your health and well-being during menopause and ensure they are properly balanced.
- Pairing of estrogen & progesterone: When estrogen is replaced, progesterone should also be replaced to ensure that estrogen binds to the correct receptors in the body.
- Ongoing lab testing & monitoring: Ongoing testing of hormone levels, as well as monitoring of patient feedback regarding their symptoms, is vital for a successful treatment program.
