What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormonal imbalance can affect both men and women, causing symptoms including low sex drive, mood swings, and fatigue. But at Naperville Internist in Naperville, IL, patients can get an effective and lasting solution with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Dr. Rachit Marwaha offers HRT with bioidentical hormone pellets that are inserted beneath the skin. During a consultation before your treatment, Dr. Marwaha will gather information about your lifestyle and medical history and perform a blood panel before recommending treatment. Your custom compounded pellet will be inserted beneath your skin after determining that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
What Types of Hormone Replacement Therapy Are Offered?
Bioidentical hormone therapy is available in a variety of delivery methods at Naperville Internist. As such, each of our fors of treatment are prescribed to meet the specific needs of each individual. These could include:
Thyroid Hormone Therapy: If you feel tired all the time, struggle with sleep, weight gain, depression, anxiety, or mood swings – it might be a hormone imbalance related to your thyroid. The good news is that thyroid hormone imbalances can be treated; however, not just any treatment will do. Treatment must begin with accurate lab testing of all the hormones that play a role in thyroid function, including: thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), T3, T4, reverse T3, and cortisol. Your practitioner should evaluate all of these hormones throughout the treatment process to adequately assess thyroid function and determine the progress of treatment.
Estrogen Hormone Therapy: Low levels of estrogen can impact your overall health and contribute to uncomfortable symptoms. Either condition can occur with menopause. Estrogen pellet therapy may be an effective solution to low estrogen and can help relieve symptoms of hormone imbalance. EvexiPEL estrogen pellet therapy is a bioidentical hormone therapy option that uses the highest-quality ingredients, proprietary formulation, and requires advanced-level training for all EvexiPEL-certified providers.
Testosterone Hormone Therapy: Testosterone therapy helps patients identify and restore hormone levels to an optimal state to eliminate symptoms and enhance health and wellbeing. Testosterone therapy is also effective in supporting a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and heart attack. Testosterone therapy is available as injections, creams, and pellets. Testosterone pellet therapy is renowned as the most effective form of testosterone therapy.

Naperville Internist Reviews
Dr. Rachit Marwaha (or Junior to Dr. Rakesh Marwaha’s Senior) has been instrumental in helping me carve out the best version of myself. He does not allow you to end up in a devastating cycle of Rx’s, has a straight forward demeanor & can discuss important health concerns or answer questions with honesty & empathy. He listens. He will take the time if you need him to give it. Just be sure not to hesitate to make your appt as the times do get fully booked. The move to their new Naper facility was crucial- he and his father, as well as a handful of other health&medical pro’s now operate out of a large, renovated, stand-alone location very accessible from any surrounding suburb. Their online portal makes booking appts or viewing test results easy. I was a patient of Rakesh for years and he is a very tough act to follow as he’s always given the best care w/ fair pricing, and Rachit is carrying on these values. If person setting appt is rude just know that doesn’t carry over to the doctors!
Dr, Rachit Marwaha is a fantastic doctor. Over the past year I have gotten to know him well and I couldn’t be more confident in his skill and expertise in the area of Internal medicine. In addition to his superior knowledge, he has a wonderful bedside manner and you feel like you were respected and understood when you leave. Dr.Marwaha JR. adds so much to this practice. So lucky to have him as my doctor. Sincerely, Judy Lawlor
Dr. Rachit Marwaha saw me during my hospital observation stay, and I did my follow-up visit with him a week later, which was fine so I'm giving him a 5 star. During my follow-up visit, I left the office and remembered two questions pertaining to my results that I forgot to ask, so I called a day or two later and asked if I could speak with the doctor to get the answers to my two questions. I was told the doctor would call me the next day at 7:15p. On the afternoon of the day I was expecting Dr Rachit Marwaha's call, I received a call from the front-desk person informing me I needed to pay my co-pay for the call at 7:15p. I went on to explain to her that I merely needed to ask two questions concerning my test results that I forgot to ask during my visit. She asked me what were the questions, I told her, she then said I'll give the doctor the message and if he calls and wants to charge you, I'll let you know, I said okay, and never heard back from either. SMH...
My Doctors of choice for over 25 years!
Dr. Marwaha (Jr) answered all my COVID questions professionally. Thank You! - Frank R
