How Can We Help?

 

The short answer is yes; but only if it’s done correctly, and only if it’s monitored regularly.

For hormone replacement therapy to be done correctly, your hormones should be brought to healthy levels. This can’t be done on a one-size-fits-all basis. Current levels should be determined via lab testing, and dosages should be customized depending upon lab results and how you feel.

Your hormones should also be properly balanced with one another. You can’t look at any one hormone in a vacuum, because all of your hormones interact with each other. Any action taken with one can affect one or more others. Safe hormone replacement means looking at everything together.

A properly administered hormone replacement program will include monitoring. Many doctors will give patients a prescription, and send them on their way with little or no follow-up. This is irresponsible. Hormone levels should be rechecked on a regular basis. Depending upon test results and how you feel, dosage should be adjusted as appropriate.

A qualified and conscientious doctor will educate you on what to look for when hormones are not in balance. (For example, too much estrogen might cause breast tenderness, and too little might cause hot flashes.) This is what you can expect from Dr. Kristen Vierregger. She will educate and inform, and then work with you to determine the best treatment plan.

A high level of monitoring, communication, and interaction (as described above) equals greater safety.

Finally, when replacing hormones, only bioidentical hormones should be used. This is particularly important when replacing estrogen and progesterone. For optimal results and safety, it’s important to work with a qualified physician who is trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Metamorphosis Medical Center is here to provide you with safe choices where hormone replacement therapy is concerned. If you are informed about hormones (with our help), and you know your own body, we can facilitate all or part of your hormone program.
