Our experienced hormone providers prefer bioidentical hormones to synthetic ones for our hormone therapies. Bioidentical hormones are plant-derived hormones that are chemically extracted from soy or yams. They have the same molecular structure as the hormones that our bodies make.
Traditional medicine often uses synthetic hormones for their hormone therapies. These hormones are produced from products that are not natural. In addition, they are not molecularly identical to natural hormones. Synthetic hormones also have additives and coatings that can cause side effects, including burning in the urinary tract, allergies, joint aches and pains. For these reasons, our experts believe that bioidentical hormones are best for the hormone therapies we provide.
Hormone therapies can be administered several different ways, but our hormone experts do not recommend pellets. Pellets have several disadvantages, including expense and side effects. Our patients respond very well to the transdermal method of delivering hormones. It has several advantages over pellets because it is less expensive and easier to adjust. Other patients may get their bioidenticals in the form of injections, creams, gels or oral medications.
The bioidentical hormones that the providers at our functional medicine clinic near Milwaukee use for hormone therapies benefit women and men with a wide array of symptoms.
