Hormone Therapy Q & A

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance? 

Hormone imbalance appears in many different ways, with some of the most common effects in women being: 

  • Hot flashes
  • Lack of energy
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Dry skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Weight gain
  • Bone loss
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Water retention
  • Headaches

Some common effects of hormone imbalance in men include: 

  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Poor energy level
  • Aggression and anger
  • Depression
  • Bone loss
  • Poor libido
  • Poor sexual stamina
  • Hair loss

The exact symptoms depend on what kind of hormones are out-of-balance, and how serious the imbalance. Women can have estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone imbalance, while men can have testosterone imbalance. 

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a natural version of hormone replacement. Traditionally, hormone replacement products came from animal sources, such as mare urine. 

Bioidentical hormones are exactly the same in molecular structure as the hormones within your body. Instead of animal sources, yams and soy are the sources of bioidentical hormones. 

For many patients, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is about restoring what they’ve lost over time or with aging, such as with menopause. Dr. Viglione also treats transgender patients with compassion while expertly helping them to attain the optimal hormone levels at any phase of transition. 

Who needs bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

If you’re experiencing unexplained symptoms that are draining your joy and destroying your quality-of-life, schedule a hormone assessment at Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center. Dr. Viglione checks male and female hormones and also does a thorough thyroid hormone evaluation. 

Dr. Viglione trained under one of the top endocrinologists in the United States, and she’s a recognized expert in her own right, so she’s the ideal specialist to determine whether you need hormone optimization. Patients from around the country come to see Dr. Viglione because they trust her for the most expert customized hormone assessment and treatment. 

Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy safe?

Yes, bioidentical hormones are a safe and reliable way to feel better and recapture your zest for life. Bioidentical hormones are safer than synthetic hormones. 

When you take bioidentical hormones as pellets implanted under the skin, transvaginally, or transdermally, and you have the proper therapeutic doses, your risk of serious issues and side-effects is quite small.
