Hormone Therapy

What is hormone therapy?

Your hormones control almost every bodily function, from your metabolism to your sex drive. As a result, if you have a hormonal imbalance, the effects can be severely disruptive and interfere with your quality of life. At Russak Personalized Medicine, the team offers customized hormone therapy to replenish your hormone levels with natural, bioidentical hormones. 

Hormone therapy replaces your missing hormones and regulates your body function. As a result, your symptoms subside, and you can get back to your regular activities. 

Why would I need hormone therapy?

Menopause is one of the most common reasons that you might seek hormone therapy. Also, while less well-known, men go through a hormonal decline as they age known as andropause. Age-related hormonal decline causes a variety of disruptive symptoms such as:

  • Weight gain
  • Libido loss
  • Lost muscle mass
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue 
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Depression and anxiety

However, hormonal imbalances aren’t only age-related. You may also have issues such as thyroid dysfunction or low testosterone, which may require hormone therapy.

What should I expect during hormone therapy?

The team at Russak Personalized Medicine provides highly customized bioidentical hormone therapy. They offer BioTe hormone pellets. BioTe uses bioidentical hormone pellets similar to estrogen and testosterone produced in the human body.  

They begin treatment with a comprehensive consultation and blood testing to assess your current hormone levels and how your symptoms are affecting your life. 

Depending on your specific needs, Russak Personalized Medicine may recommend injections such as testosterone shots or BioTe pellets. The team implants BioTe pellets under the skin of your upper buttock where they gradually release the hormones you need. Most patients have 2-4 pellet insertions each year. Routine pellet insertion ensures that you don’t have to worry about your hormones plummeting or deal with a rollercoaster of disruptive effects of a hormonal imbalance. 

You have frequent appointments with the team at Russak Personalized Medicine so your provider can monitor your symptoms, overall health, and hormone levels. If necessary, they can adjust your BioTe hormone pellet therapy to optimize your results.

If you suffer from fatigue, weight gain, other signs of a hormonal imbalance, or want to join the concierge membership program, call Russak Personalized Medicine or make an appointment online today for customized hormone therapy to restore your health.
