Hormonal Health Q & A

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy, or BHRT, is employed to address hormone imbalances. In bioidentical hormone therapy a mixture of hormones is given to patients in the form of medications, developed for their specific hormone deficiencies. The compounds contained in bioidentical hormone therapy medications have the same molecular and chemical structure as the hormones found within the human body. The medications can be used to restore balance to estrogen and progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and adrenal hormone levels in order to help the patient maintain optimum health.  

What is a Bone Resorption Assessment?

The bone resorption assessment is a simple urinary hormone test which produces an accurate evaluation of the rate of bone cell turnover in a particular patient. Hormone evaluation combined with the bone resorption assessment helps the doctor to identify individuals who may be more susceptible to developing osteoporosis in the future. The goal is to address any changes before significant loss occurs and also to oversee the efficiency of a treatment program. It examines pyridinium crosslinks and deoxypyridinoline within the bone structure. It is helpful in determining current rate of bone loss, the presence of lytic bone disease, and the efficiency of bone supporting therapies.

What is the One Day Hormone Check?

The One Day Hormone Check ™ is an efficient salivary hormone test for assessing important hormone levels throughout a 24-hour period. This hormone test examines five patient saliva samples for DHEA, cortisol, and melatonin secretion patterns. This test monitors:

  • Adrenal Function: The adrenal glands make many hormones such as DHEA and cortisol. When these hormones are imbalanced because of stress or other issues, it can cause fatigue, weakness, muscle and joint discomfort, obesity, and a decreased feeling of well-being. A sustained hormone imbalance can damage the immune system, triggering premature aging and setting the stage for continuing illness.
  • Melatonin Production: Melatonin contains potent anti-aging and anti-cancer assets and assists to regulate sleep. Low levels can be related to insomnia, menstrual abnormalities, and infertility. Higher levels can affect depression.

The Genova Diagnostics saliva testing is also available in 6-day and 28-day options as well. For a hormonal balance check and treatment, or to visit the office for another medical concern, contact Prima Health Clinic to schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable doctors.
