Hormone Testing Resources
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the process of restoring and maintaining hormone balance with hormones that are biologically identical to hormones produced by the human body.
Bioidentical hormones have been available and used in hormone treatments for decades. They can be custom-compounded to match each patient’s unique needs and body chemistry, instead of the “one size fits all” approach used with off-the-shelf hormones.
The following is a list of laboratories that might assist in identifying possible hormone deficiencies or excesses.
