St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
While recent news reports have heralded the use of IV (intravenous) delivery of hormone replacements, without any pre-treatment blood tests, Dr. Kathy Maupin, founder and medical director of BioBalance Health in St. Louis, Missouri, refutes this method’s efficacy and protocol.
“There are two problems with this treatment: hormone treatment should be guided by blood levels of the hormone involved, before and after treatment; and hormone therapy should produce a stable blood level in order for the treatment to be successful.” Maupin explains. “This “new” way of delivering hormones is not guided by blood work, and has the drawbacks of being both invasive and brief in duration.”
Maupin explained that hormones injected by IV typically last less than 18 hours, and the IV cannot practically be prescribed in this way, to result in stable treatment levels. In contrast Maupin prescribes long acting sub-dermal (under the skin) pellets, prescribed by reviewing blood levels. The pellets deliver a slow-release of the proper dosage and patients experience the benefits from three to four months. This is close to the way the body secretes and maintains hormone levels.
“At BioBalance Health we draw blood tests prior to treatment as well as after, to determine a maintenance dose that is re-dosed 2-3 times a year.,” says Maupin. BioBalance patients receive dosages specifically prescribed by Dr. Maupin for their individual needs.
For over 10 years Dr. Maupin has specialized in all natural hormone pellet replacement for men and women. Patients come from around the globe to see her. BioBalance Health is located in St. Louis, Missouri and Dr. Maupin also sees patients on a select basis in Kansas City, MO.
