What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical means natural, compounded, plant-derived, or chemical identical to the human hormone structure.
Human sex hormones are divided into estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. There are many ways to get Bioidentical hormones. These include pills, patches, gel, cream, injection, and implanted pallets.
At Soho integrative medicine, Dr. Torabi will order routine blood, urine, or saliva tests to check your hormone levels. The doses are adjusted according to your symptoms and your changing hormone needs, with the goal of keeping the dose to the minimum required to achieve the goal.
– Pallet implants provide long lasting (3-4 months) relief for menopause or andropause symptoms.
It delivers a constant level of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Pallets are placed just under the skin during an office visit by Dr. Torabi. The pallets are about the size of a grain of rice and we use a local anesthetic to make sure the procedure is essentially painless.
