Human hormones play a significant role in maintaining proper function of the body. The natural aging process does more than turn your hair gray, it also affects your hormone production and increases your risk of certain health problems. If you are struggling to adapt due to hormone imbalances, you may benefit from anti-aging bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), a cutting-edge treatment that uses bioidentical hormones to replenish the exact hormones your body needs to function at full capacity. At her primary care practice in Arcadia, California, internist Loanne B. Tran, MD, MPH, provides anti-aging bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to both men and women of various ages suffering from hormonal imbalances. If you are experiencing symptoms that may be keeping you from feeling your best, you can request a consultation with Dr. Loanne Tran.

Traditional hormone replacement therapy uses synthetic hormones which are not identical to the hormones naturally produced by your body. Bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally occuring sources such as plants and are designed to match human hormones molecule by molecule. Since they are structurally identical to the natural hormones produced by the human body, they are much safer, more effective and have fewer side effects.

Dr. Tran tailors anti-aging bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to each of her patient’s needs. To determine the type of treatment you will most benefit from, she conducts an exam, reviews your medical history, your symptoms and orders comprehensive lab tests.
After gathering all of the necessary information, she can make recommendations for BHRT therapy. There are several different options for treatment such as pellets, patches, creams, injections, and pills. Selecting the right therapy can enhance your life and wellbeing.
Only a trained medical professional like Dr. Tran can determine if you are a candidate for BHRT. That said, if you are a middle-aged man or woman who is experiencing uncomfortable side effects as a result of the natural aging process, you will probably qualify.
