Dr. Riegel now brings his expertise to treat bioidentical hormone patients throughout Illinois. His years of practice as an OBGYN combined with his extensive study of the effects of low hormones on adult onset diseases enables him to bring cutting edge hormone treatment straight to your Illinois home or office.
Common age-related conditions such as high cholesterol, hypertension, adult onset diabetes, osteoporosis, and even some types of cancer are linked to a low hormone state. Bioidentical hormones are identical to the hormones which are produced naturally in the body. Your body isn’t able to distinguish the difference between natural and bioidentical hormones. Because your body can’t tell the difference, bioidentical hormones enable you to receive the health benefits associated with increased hormone levels.
Female patients in Illinois receiving bioidentical hormone therapy report increased energy, healthy weight loss, improved sleep, an increased libido, better regulated menstrual cycles, as well as a decrease in hot flashes and night sweats, among other benefits.
Male patients report a noticeable increase in the capacity to exercise, greater energy, muscle growth, elevated mood and sexual desire, as well as better work performance.
