Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Specialist

Hormone Therapy FAQ

Hormones affect almost every living system in your body. So when hormone levels are skewed, they can wreak havoc on the entire body.

Dr. David Kunz brings his decades of expertise treating hormone dysfunction to Sugarloaf Wellness Center. He uses his innovative approach to hormone assessment and treats imbalances with pellet-injectable bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Schedule your hormone evaluation at the Lawrenceville, Georgia, wellness clinic online or over the phone.

What causes hormonal imbalances?

The endocrine system controls major biological processes in the body. When any of your hormone levels are outside the normal range, the imbalance can significantly disrupt everything from metabolism to libido.

Women experience reproductive hormone changes in particular during menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. Aging, chemotherapy, and hysterectomy also influence sex hormone levels.

Many women also have coexisting adrenal and thyroid imbalances when their glands fail to produce enough hormones. Dr. Kunz uses his unique evaluation system to identify and treat hormone imbalances with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

During menopause, women’s estrogen and progesterone levels sharply decrease. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) involves replenishing the body with missing hormones.

BHRT helps restore some of those hormones to reduce the uncomfortable side effects of menopause. By using BHRT, Dr. Kunz helps fine-tune your hormone levels for optimal health.

Different forms of BHRT are available, including oral, topical, patch, and injectable substances. Derived from bioidentical plant estrogens, they have the same molecular structure as your natural hormones.

What type of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy do you use?

Dr. Kunz uses BioTE™ pellet-injection therapy to rebalance the reproductive hormones. The pellets release a steady, controlled stream of bioidentical hormones into your system.

Because of the revolutionary controlled-release system, you only need to get injections 2-4 times a year. You also won’t experience the extreme swings involved with other dosing methods that expose you to larger doses of hormones all at once.

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

By reducing hormone deficiencies, BHRT helps reduce the side effects associated with perimenopausal and menopausal hormone imbalance, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Low libido
  • Memory problems
  • Weight gain

BHRT may also lower your risk of diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other conditions associated with hormone deficiency.
