The middle age spread just happens to coincide with a natural drop, and frequently an imbalance, in hormone production.

What Can I Expect from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
I’m not in menopause/andropause, why would I need hormone replacement?
At Fountains Medical, a quick yet thorough lab test will give us a whole-picture look at what’s going on with your hormone levels. We typically have results back in just a few days. Once we receive your lab results, our certified doctor or nurse practitioner will discuss your results, your medical history, symptoms you are experiencing, and any other relevant information to determine whether or not Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a good fit for you. The procedure to insert the pellets takes only a few minutes and is virtually painless after the sting of numbing medication. You will likely begin to experience positive results within 3 weeks of pelleting, and will continue to enjoy the results for several months! Follow up bloodwork is done a few weeks later to be sure you have reached optimal hormone levels. If pellets are not of interest to you, there are other options that can be discussed with the provider.
Testosterone levels in otherwise healthy women and men tend to drop long before “the change of life.” Many of the typical “getting older” symptoms can be explained by this. If your hormones are optimized, you can expect your energy to increase, to have better sleep and mental clarity, to improve your ability to lose weight, and to have increased libido. If that isn’t enough, hormone optimization may offer protection to a healthy breast, bone, brain, and heart.
