GAIN ENERGY WITH HORMONE THERAPY

Our hormones play a huge role in overall well-being. Despite this, hormone imbalances tend to be overlooked or go unnoticed. At Blue Sky MD, we begin all hormone therapy treatments with an in-depth hormone lab panel.

Hormone therapy can ease the degenerative side effects of aging, weight gain, and other medical issues. Our Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses all-natural hormones to get you back to feeling better than ever.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment for symptoms of menopause in women, and andropause in men.  HRT involves administering medications that contain hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, or progesterone to replace the hormones that the body is no longer producing.

 

Hormone Replacement Therapy can be administered in various forms, such as pills, skin patches, gels, or creams. It is often prescribed to men and women who are experiencing uncomfortable symptoms of aging, but it can also be used for other conditions such as osteoporosis. 

What are the different types of hormone therapy?

There are several types of hormone therapy available. The type prescribed a physician will depend on a patient’s symptoms and particular needs. Some common types of hormone therapy include:

1. Estrogen Therapy

This is the most commonly prescribed type of HT and is used to relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. It can be taken in the form of pills, patches, gels, or creams.

2. Progestin Therapy

This type of therapy is often prescribed in combination with estrogen therapy. Progestin is a synthetic form of progesterone, a hormone that helps balance the effects of estrogen.

3. Testosterone Therapy

This type of therapy is typically prescribed for men who have low levels of testosterone, a condition known as hypogonadism. Testosterone therapy can be administered in the form of gels, patches, or injections.

4. Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy

This type of therapy is used to treat low thyroid hormone levels, a condition known as hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormone replacement therapy can be taken in the form of pills.

5. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

This type of therapy uses hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally produced by the body. They are usually customized to the individual patient based on their hormone levels and symptoms.

How is hormone therapy done?

At Blue Sky MD, all hormone therapy treatments begin with an in-depth lab panel to assess current levels of hormones. This helps us determine a patient’s individual needs and develop a treatment plan that will help restore hormones to optimal levels.

Once a baseline has been established we can determine which hormone delivery method and dosage is ideal for a patient’s needs. 

Once treatment is started, we will establish regular checkups and tests to ensure target symptoms are being reduced and hormones continue to trend toward optimal levels.

Once hormones reach optimal levels, we’ll move to a maintenance phase to prevent any regressions, and continue to monitor levels as needed.

How does hormone therapy affect weight loss?

Hormone therapy increases your chance of successful weight loss by 10%  in both men and women.

HRT improves lean muscle mass, which increases metabolism and supports weight loss efforts.

On average, male patients using hormone therapy lose 20-25% more weight with combination hormone therapy and nutrition program. Women lose 10% more weight than just with nutrition programs.

Why Add HRT to Your Weight Loss & Weight Management Program?

  1. Improved overall well-being: Using HRT can help alleviate symptoms from a hormone imbalance, including hot flashes, aches and pains, and mood swings. Alleviating these symptoms means it’s easier to participate in physical activities and stick to a regulated diet plan, assisting in overall weight loss.
  2. Changes in metabolism: The way that your metabolism runs and how your fat is stored can vary depending on your estrogen levels. By introducing HRT and estrogen you can maintain an overall better body composition and keep fat from distributing to the abdomen. This varies from patient to patient.
  3. Changes in muscle mass: Testosterone has two functions in HRT: building muscle mass and reducing fat mass.

FEEL LIGHTER WITH MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS

Using a physician-led approach, we help identify personal roadblocks to successful weight loss and provide lifelong tools to overcome them.

At Blue Sky MD, you’ll learn what works for your unique biology and develop practical skills to ensure long-term success.

What is Medical Weight Loss?

The Blue Sky MD Medical weight loss program is supervised and managed by a team of healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurse practitioners, wellness coaches, and dietitians.

Our program includes a holistic approach involving medical evaluations, counseling, and prescription medications to help patients lose weight in a safe, medically-supervised environment.

Our program begins with a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine each patient’s overall health, any underlying medical conditions, and any medications they may be taking. This is followed by a personalized weight loss plan that includes a combination of diet, exercise, one-on-one coaching and support, as well as medications when necessary.

Our program also includes regular coaching appointments and monitoring where we can make adjustments to the plan as needed.

The goal of our medical weight loss program is not just to help patients lose weight, but also to improve overall health and reduce the risk of serious obesity-related diseases such as stroke, heart disease, and diabetes.

How do I get started on my weight loss journey with Blue Sky MD?

To effectively help you manage and reach your weight loss goals, we need a better look at your current health and determine your body’s specific needs through a metabolic assessment. If you are ready to start your journey to achieving a healthy weight and improving your quality of life, start by scheduling an appointment with us.

Does insurance cover medical weight loss?

Yes! We accept most major insurance at Blue Sky MD. Contact us to find out if we can work with your insurance provider to treat you at our medical weight loss clinic.

How much weight will I lose with Blue Sky MD?

On average, Blue Sky MD patients typically see around 15% weight loss after 3 months—and that’s just the beginning! Results vary from person to person, however, and patients who also undergo hormone therapy may see an additional 10% weight loss.

“The program at Blue Sky is not a one-size-fits-all, it’s not packaged meals, it’s not milkshakes, and it’s not geared towards everyone in the population – it’s MY program.”

“It was a change in lifestyle, not a diet. The weight just started coming off. Before I had cut back on things and tried this or that – they taught me how to eat. That knowledge is what gave me my weight loss.”
