Male & Female Bio-Identical Hormone Evaluations Q&A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are a more natural hormone replacement option. Bioidentical hormones are plant-based and modified to have the same structure and function as the hormones made in your body.

Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are common bioidentical hormones. The Lamkin Clinic uses these hormones for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help men and women deal with the aging process. 

As you get older, production of the sex hormones — estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone ― declines. Changes in these hormone levels cause many of the symptoms people associate with aging.

The Lamkin Clinic offers male and female bioidentical hormone evaluations and assessments to determine who might benefit from BHRT.

Who is a candidate for male and female bioidentical hormone evaluations?

The experts at The Lamkin Clinic determine who is a candidate for male and female bioidentical hormone evaluations. However, you may want to schedule a consultation if you’re experiencing any of the signs and symptoms that occur with declining sex hormone levels, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Low motivation
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Weight gain
  • Bloating
  • Food cravings
  • Muscle aches and joint pain
  • Longer recovery from injuries
  • Frequent illnesses
  • Hair loss
  • Saggy, dry, aging skin
  • Low libido

Not everyone with a hormonal imbalance has symptoms, but changes in hormone levels may affect physical health and increase your risk of future health problems. 

If you’re in or approaching menopause or have concerns about low testosterone, you might benefit from a hormone evaluation at The Lamkin Clinic.

What happens during male and female bioidentical hormone evaluations?

The Lamkin Clinic takes a patient-centered approach to care, and what happens during your bioidentical hormone evaluation depends on your unique health needs and concerns.

Your provider reviews your symptoms, medical history, usual diet, and daily routine, as well as your health goals. They perform a physical exam and run specialty lab testing that provides a full hormonal assessment.

Your provider talks to you about the results of your testing and all of your hormone treatment and replacement options, including topical preparations, injectables, and hormone pellets. Together, you decide what form of BHRT makes the best choice for you. 

Male and female bioidentical hormone evaluations allow The Lamkin Clinic to customize your therapy based on your unique set of symptoms, health goals, and medical history.
