Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Fort Lauderdale, FL

Hormone Replacement Therapy Fort Lauderdale

Have you experienced excessive weight gain in a short period of time? Sudden loss of muscle mass and bone density? Anxiety, depression or insomnia? Waning libido or erectile dysfunction? All of these dysfunctions may the result of a hormone imbalance.

Hormones are like biochemical factory managers coordinating and transferring information from one set of worker cells to another to run all of our body functions. Unbalanced levels can put you at risk for diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, thyroid disease and even Alzheimer’s Disease – whether you’re a man or a woman.

But menopause and andropause don’t have to take over your life.

Both men and women need to optimize their levels of both estrogen and testosterone in order to revive their youthful energy, active lifestyle and libido.

Dr. Cabrera studied the endocrine system for years before discovering the best hormone balancer for men and women - BHRT (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy). Bio-Identical because the molecules that make up these hormones have the identical shape and structure of your body’s molecules – they match your receptor sites perfectly.

Signs of Hormone Imbalance

Your hormone levels start to decrease regularly in your forties and settle out of balance by the time you’re fifty. On average, you are likely to lose as much of 40% of what you started the decade with, which negatively impacts your:

  • bone strength
  • muscle strength
  • body fat and breast size
  • memory and concentration
  • stamina
  • sex drive

Excessive stress, lack of exercise, overuse of tobacco, alcohol and drugs – prescribed or illegal – and a poor diet can further aggravate these symptoms.

Which of my Hormones may need Rebalancing?

Hormones are biochemicals secreted by your 9 adrenal glands. These hormones regulate your sleep, growth, heart and digestive health, as well as immune, stress and sexual response:

  • testosterone: helps generate your energy, muscle mass and libido
  • estrogen: regulates cholesterol and bone density; modulates libido and erectile function
  • progesterone: supports thyroid, cardiovascular and nervous system functions
  • dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA): helps produce and regulate estrogens or testosterone

How do you know if your Hormones are Imbalanced?

Dr. Cabrera will perform one or more of the following to assess your base hormone levels:

  • blood test: your blood will be sent to a lab for analysis; can’t always detect hormones that are unavailable to your tissues
  • saliva test: measures the amount of hormone available in the tissues your hormone is targeting; requires spitting into a plastic tube to collect saliva at home at specific times to more accurately measure levels
  • urine test: this FDA-approved test measures follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) which manages the menstrual cycle and menopause
  • blood serum test: tests FSH, luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin, fasting insulin, thyroid hormones, thyroid antibodies and testosterone; Dr. Cabrera also uses this throughout testosterone treatment to ensure optimal levels

After reviewing your results, Dr. Cabrera will inform you whether your imbalance is the result of natural menopause or andropause, or whether your symptoms indicate adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

BHRT Delivery Methods

Unlike the altered molecular structure of synthetic hormones, soy and yam-based Bio-Identical hormones have the exact molecular structure as those produced by your body. So, your cells can absorb and synthesize them safely and seamlessly.

Delivery systems include:

  • creams and gels: you apply daily at home, adjusting amounts as needed
  • intramuscular injections: commercial-grade testosterone delivered and monitored weekly in our office or your home
  • pellets: inserted just beneath the skin to the side of your buttock; is undetectable, and this time-release method provides continuous replenishment for 4 – 5 months, after which levels will be reassessed

Dr. Cabrera offers these topical creams or gels, injectables and pellets based on your lifestyle for optimal hormone balancing.

Your imbalance took years to develop – give it time to resolve. Many patients feel improvements in three to four days, but full optimization may take up to four weeks. Make sure to attend all of your follow-up visits so Dr. Cabrera can adjust your hormone dosing if needed to optimize your benefit.
