Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy means restoring hormone levels to your younger years. The best and most effective way to do this is through taking custom-made supplements.

 At The Riegel Center, renowned hormone specialist Dr. Riegel creates his own proprietary hormone replacement formulas using bioidentical hormones. These bioidentical hormones are precise molecular copies of your body’s natural hormones, which makes them very easy to ingest.  

Your body immediately accepts bioidentical hormones just as if you produced them yourself, which means they yield the same benefits as natural hormones. 

When might I need hormone replacement therapy?

As you age, you commonly notice some negative changes in your body. Many people describe feeling tired, run-down, grumpy, and simply older than their years when they reach their 30s, 40s, and 50s. 

The primary reason for negative physical and mental changes during middle age is hormone loss. Both women and men lose natural hormones as they age, but you don’t have to live without those hormones.

If you’re having problems like low energy, poor sleep, weight gain, low libido, or poor mental clarity, or if the outward signs of aging, like thin skin and wrinkles, make you unhappy, hormone replacement therapy can change your life. 

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers a wide array of benefits for men and women as they start to age, including:

  • Improved energy
  • Better sleep
  • Anxiety and depression relief
  • Boosted libido
  • Weight loss
  • Better bone strength and reduced osteoporosis risk

In short, bioidentical hormone therapy at The Riegel Center can help you feel like you’re young again. If you’ve found yourself trying to accept the terrible toll of aging, there’s no reason to, thanks to bioidentical hormone therapy.

How does the hormone replacement therapy process work?

Step one is a consultation with Dr. Riegel. You can schedule an in-office or virtual consultation at The Riegel Center. Dr. Riegel welcomes patients from every state in the nation. 

During your consultation, you discuss your needs and treatment goals so Dr. Riegel can recommend the hormone replacement therapy and age management medicine plan that suits you best. 

You visit the LabCorp office nearest you for a blood draw. After the lab sends results to The Riegel Center, Dr. Riegel creates a unique bioidentical hormone replacement plan for you. He designs this custom formula to bring you back to the hormone levels of your 20s. 

Dr. Riegel uses the information from additional blood draws at one, three, and six months to further tailor your hormone formula to your individual needs. Once you attain the ideal hormone levels — and the youthful revitalization that goes with them — you simply need maintenance blood tests twice a year.
