The Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Process
There are just a few steps you need to take to learn if you are a candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). The BHRT process starts with educating yourself. Take the time to review our Women's Hormones page, Men's Hormones page and the BHRT Benefits page. You will find detailed information about the symptoms affiliated with hormone imbalance and how BHRT can help relieve these symptoms. The benefits of BHRT can be found here as well as a BHRT Hormone Imbalance questionnaire that will help you decide if you have symptoms of hormone deficiency. If you answer yes to just a few of these questions, then you are very likely to be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
The next step in the BHRT Process is to find a doctor in our health directory offering Bio-identical HRT. The easiest way to do this is to search by zip code to find the doctors closest to you or search by the service you are looking for such as Bio-identical HRT. Once you find a doctor, complete the “Rapid Request” form at the bottom of their doctor profile page. Your information will be emailed immediately to the doctor’s office alerting them that you would like to schedule a consultation. Most doctors follow up with you within 48 hours. However, to schedule a quicker consultation we encourage you to follow up directly. To make this process easier, the doctor’s full contact information will be emailed to you so that you can follow up immediately.
It is required that a doctor see a patient before prescribing bioidentical hormones. After scheduling your initial consultation to learn if Bio-identical HRT is right for you, most doctors suggest a general examination. Once you have discussed your symptoms with the doctor, they will then decide whether to move forward with lab test to confirm if you have a hormonal imbalance. Depending on the type hormone being tested, the doctor may offer a blood test or a saliva test. While not all doctors follow the exact format, most doctors require similar lab test to gain a solid understanding of your hormone imbalance, if any. The below tests will give a doctor a baseline of your hormone levels:
Complete Thyroid Panel
Complete Metabolic Panel
Women who are over 40 also require an annual mammogram.Once a doctor has confirmed you have a hormone deficiency, they will suggest a hormone replacement program that is right for you and brings you back to an optimal state of being. Depending on your results, a doctor will follow up with you every 3, 6 or 9 months.
It is important to keep in mind that everybody is an individual, no one size (dose of medicine) fits all. The correct amount of bioidentical hormones is determined based on laboratory studies, severity of symptoms, age, gender, and body size.
