Alan Terlinsky, M.D. – Virginia Bioidentical Hormones Specialist
Bioidentical hormones are molecularly and functionally identical to hormones in the human body.
In general, hormones in the body maintain your health. Hormone levels generally decline as we age, and health maintenance concerns arise.
When hormone-producing glands do not function properly, hormones become imbalanced or deficient, and severe consequences develop.
If hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, cortisol, growth hormone, thyroid hormone, or insulin are imbalanced or at improper levels (too high or too low), some of the symptoms that may occur include abnormal metabolism, poor organ function, disease vulnerability, accelerated aging, and weight gain despite proper diet and exercise.
Dr. Terlinsky can provide you with proper rebalancing or replacement of hormones in the body through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to eliminate these symptoms and to improve your well-being. Hormone imbalance strains the body and contributes to the development of many serious diseases. Bioidentical hormones not only relieve symptoms of hormone imbalance but also can decrease your risk for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and degenerative arthritis. Dr. Terlinsky’s bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program provides you with an individualized, custom treatment plan to replace and rebalance any hormonal deficiencies or imbalances you may have.
