Hormone therapy is a treatment that increases low levels of hormones within your body.

Because a hormone imbalance increases your risk of weight gain, hormone therapy can make weight loss easier.
Symptoms of unbalanced hormones include:
Choosing hormone therapy with the F.I.T Medical Weight Loss & Optimization team can reduce these and other unpleasant symptoms associated with hormone problems.
Hormones are the body's chemical messengers that travel throughout specific cells to optimize function. Hormones can prevent morbidity with aging and increase the quality of life. As people age, the production of hormones can be affected in many ways.
Your F.I.T Medical Weight Loss & Optimization specialists evaluate you to let you know if you’re a candidate for hormone therapy. They use blood, urine, or saliva tests to assess your current hormone levels and determine the most appropriate treatment based on your personalized needs.
Your specialist may prescribe bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are identical to what your body produces. Bioidentical hormone therapy is available in a variety of forms including pills, patches, injections, creams, pellets, gels, sprays, and vaginal applications for women.
Bioidentical pellets provide a consistent release of hormones into your body. Bioidentical pellets are inserted in the office. The insertion area is numbed, a tiny incision is made and the pellet is inserted under the skin. The skin incision is then closed with medical tape. There is minimal pain associated with the procedure.
After undergoing hormone therapy at F.I.T Medical Weight Loss & Optimization, you can expect to look and feel better over time. Your specialist monitors your hormone levels periodically to ensure the treatment is working.
Hormones are replaced according to the medication formulation you receive. Your hormone levels are rechecked at intervals, which allows adjustments to be made. This will ensure you have long-lasting anti-aging results and help you maintain your ideal body weight.
A mammogram and Well woman’s exam is necessary before starting hormone therapy.
