As you age your hormones start to decline which can lead to a variety of different health issues such as fatigue, irritability, depression, weight gain, a decreased sex drive, restless leg syndrome, and more. However, with the help of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Jack Bertolino can regulate your hormones and help you start feeling like yourself once again. So, how can you tell if hormone replacement therapy is right for you?
You walk into your favorite clothing store and “BAM!” just like that you fall in love with a shirt that you just have to have— your life won’t be complete without it, it completes you, and yes, it’s completely right for you. Unlike your favorite shirt, however, there are many things— including hormone replacement therapy— that just aren’t right for everyone.
One of the best ways for us to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is by conducting a variety of different blood tests. Blood tests allow Dr. Jack Bertolino to see if your hormones are low enough for BHRT and if you have any underlying health issues or concerns.
During your initial consultation, we will go over your health history to determine if any preexisting conditions or past health concerns will affect your candidacy for this type of procedure.
Among drawing your blood and evaluating your health history, we will also perform a physical examination to make sure that there isn’t anything to be concerned about.
Just like with any medical or health-related procedure, we will make sure that you are a good candidate for BHRT by performing a variety of tests. If you would like to learn more about BHRT or to schedule your consultation, contact our Williamsville office today!
