If you suffer from fatigue, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, or mood swings, hormone imbalance might be the reason. At Adair Family Clinic and Med Spa in Peoria and Phoenix, Arizona, board-certified family nurse practitioner Kris Adair, FNP-BC, RN, and her exceptional staff offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to balance your levels, diminish unpleasant symptoms, and restore your quality of life.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy consists of pellets containing hormones made from plant-based sources that are identical to those your body produces. Pellets containing these hormones are sourced from yams, which contain an exact replication of human hormones without the risk of allergens.
The Adair Family Clinic and Med Spa offers hormone therapies that may consist of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid hormone, or other hormones that restore ideal body functions and the way you feel.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can diminish symptoms of an imbalance, including:
Your symptoms may begin as mild and worsen over time if not addressed. See the Adair Family Clinic and Med Spa experts at the first sign of hormone issues or if your current hormone treatment doesn’t work the way it’s designed.
To determine if you’re a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and which form is best, our specialist discusses your medical history and symptoms, completes a physical exam, and orders blood tests to evaluate your body’s hormone levels. You require blood work before your first treatment, six weeks later, and annually thereafter.
During hormone treatment, your specialist cleans and numbs the treatment area, inserts tiny pellets beneath the skin near your hip, and closes the small incision using medical tape. The treatment is simple, fast (often taking less than 5 minutes), and painless, and there’s no downtime afterward.
You may resume typical daily activities after receiving hormone pellets. You might notice symptom relief after 7-10 days, but complete relief might take six months. The pellets last about 5-6 months for women and 3-4 months for men, though individualized results vary. Your provider replaces the pellets as needed to ensure long-lasting results.
