As you transition through different phases of life, your hormones fluctuate, which may cause problems. Bio-identical hormone replacement eases those dips in women’s estrogen and men’s testosterone that happen as you get older. Nurse Practitioner Bukola Adeniran at the Care Access Health Clinic can help you find a more youthful hormonal balance, personalized for your own body chemistry. Women and men in the Babylon, New York area now have a place to turn to for medically supervised hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical hormones have the same exact molecular structure as the hormones your body makes. Your body can’t tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and real hormones either, so it processes them the same. Hormone replacement therapy is used to maintain an optimal level of estrogen and progesterone in your body during menopause to help alleviate some of the discomforts that menopause causes.
If you’ve had a hysterectomy or need relief from menopause symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood disturbances, and insomnia, then you might consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as your first plan of action at Care Access Health Clinic.
Nurse Practitioner Bukola Adeniran will look into you and your family’s medical histories to determine if you’re a good candidate for hormone replacement. Through blood and saliva testing, she’ll be able to determine where your hormone levels are at compared to where they should be. With those numbers, she can prescribe hormones at the correct level to bridge the gap.
Replacement hormones come in the form of pill, patch, cream, or gel, and they’re absorbed by the body to help even out hormone levels. These hormones are meant to be taken temporarily at the lowest effective dose and gradually withdrawn to make menopause more tolerable by easing into it.
Nurse Practitioner Adeniran provides bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy for men. If you have low testosterone levels or hypogonadism, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy might help increase your libido, muscle mass, bone density, and even improve cognition.
It’s normal for your testosterone levels to start dropping in your 40s, but you might be able to normalize those levels and reverse conditions like erectile dysfunction and low libido with testosterone replacement therapy. Nurse Practitioner Adeniran will examine you and take a blood test to determine your eligibility for testosterone replacement therapy.
