Bioidentical Hormones

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

  • Decreased libido
  • Weight gain
  • Sleeplessness
  • Hot flashes
  • Irritability
  • Irregular periods
  • Hair loss
  • Urinary problems
  • Poor concentration

Hormone imbalance can also cause vaginal dryness in female patients, which can lead to painful intercourse.

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome 
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Metabolic syndrome

Sexual dysfunction can also improve with the use of bioidentical hormone therapy.

Am I a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Dr. Rosenblatt evaluates your symptoms and determines if your problems are because of hormone imbalance. If you’re in otherwise good health, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is likely a good option for you.

What should I expect during a bioidentical hormone therapy appointment?

Dr. Rosenblatt is committed to determining the root cause of your hormone imbalance instead of putting a bandage on your symptoms. After a comprehensive examination and conversation with you, which might include extensive lab testing, he makes recommendations for lifestyle and diet changes. 

Based on your unique condition and hormone levels, he recommends a customized blend of bioidentical hormones, which act exactly like natural hormones in your body. Dr. Rosenblatt and his knowledgeable team are adept at knowing which hormones you need to replace and the precise quantity you need to optimize your health.

Depending on the type of bioidentical replacement therapy that Dr. Rosenblatt thinks is right for you, you’ll take a pill, apply a cream or gel, or have a slow-release pellet implanted into your buttocks. 

He monitors you periodically to understand how your body is metabolizing the bioidentical hormones as it relates to a range of epigenetic factors, such as:

  • Medications
  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Environmental toxins
  • Genetics
