DeerFields explains: what are bioidentical hormones?

As we age, we become aware of changes in our bodies and how they function. For many, the telltale signs include a loss of energy, thinning hair, a slower metabolism. While some changes are to be expected, some may be the result of a hormonal imbalance, which may be exacerbating or even accelerating the aging process.  At DeerFields, we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men and women who are appropriate candidates.

Bioidentical hormones are created with the same chemical structure and function as the hormones that occur naturally in our bodies. Bioidentical hormones can be created for a variety of hormones important in our daily functions, including testosterone, thyroid hormone, DHEA, and more. Bioidentical hormones are considered a safe and effective option for hormone replacement therapy.
