Dr. Michelle Fugitt develops individually-tailored hormone replacement plans for her patients.
Your individual hormone requirements govern your health and well-being in numerous ways. As we mature, the right levels of hormones in our bodies become more and more crucial. Imbalanced hormone levels can be to blame for many problems, including loss of bone structure, heart disease and memory loss, as well as symptoms of menopause. Therefore your individual requirements should be kept in check for optimal health. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement just may be the answer to improving and sustaining your health. Proper testing is an effective key to your individual hormone replacement equation.
Dr. Michelle L. Fugitt specializes in assisting men and women in defining and maintaining their individual hormone requirements through testing and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. She truly wants to help you better understand how your hormones affect and benefit your body. Her goal is to help correct your hormone deficiency, increase your quality of life, and reduce or prevent disruptive side effects and disease risks.
Monitoring symptoms is not enough, according to Dr. Pamela Wartian Smith, author of the book “HRT: The Answers.” Hormone levels should be tested before and about three months after you begin Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Routine saliva testing helps the doctor attain the level of hormone replacement that is right for you. Dr. Fugitt gives you complete information to accurately test your saliva.
