With age, many men and women experience a depletion of their most important hormones. For men, a decrease in testosterone can cause a reduction in muscle mass, a loss of stamina, and reduced sex drive. Women may experience bone loss, hot flashes, and sleep disturbances because their body is producing less estrogen. Luckily, there’s treatment in the form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Contact Dr. Maninder Guram, MD, at the Texas Health and Lifestyle Center in Tomball, Texas so that he can walk you through your options.
During menopause, the amount of estrogen and progesterone in a woman’s body begins to deplete. This causes such symptoms as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, and can even cause osteoporosis. Supplementing both estrogen and progesterone, hormone replacement therapy can help treat the symptoms of menopause and aging.
BioTE® is a form of hormone replacement therapy that replaces the estrogen and progesterone your body already makes. BioTE is the only form that uses your body’s natural hormone production system to replace your decreased hormones.
Having the proper hormone balance is vital to a woman’s health. Besides being the agent that gets the uterus ready for a fertilized egg, estrogen also helps to regulate calcium in your body and raises the good type of cholesterol in your blood.
