About Dr. Kathy Maupin MD

Author & Authority in Bioidentical Hormone Therapy and Medical Director of BioBalance Health®

Kathy Maupin M.D. is the founder and Medical Director of BioBalance Health® and the most experienced hormone doctor in St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri. She practiced Obstetrics and Gynecology for more than 25 years. In 2003, she created BioBalance Health® LLC to help women and men deal with symptoms of testosterone and estradiol deficiency that accompanies aging, by treating her patients with bioidentical hormone pellet treatments. These long-acting pellets are the best way to treat age-related hormone deficiency. Age 40 is the average age women begin to be symptomatic from testosterone deficiency and 55 is the average age men require testosterone treatment. Dr. Maupin personally experienced an abrupt loss of both estradiol and testosterone when she had her ovaries removed at the age of 47. Her search for treatment led her to California and Dr. Gino Tutera who treated her with testosterone and estradiol pellets alleviate the effects of aging in the most natural and effective way. Sex hormones and then trained her to take care of other women with the same symptoms that she had experienced. Dr. Maupin treated her gyn patients who were menopausal with estradiol and testosterone pellets, and she was amazed at how effectively bioidentical hormone pellets worked to bring them back to health, in the same way she had experienced. Dr Maupin was the first doctor in St. Louis and the mid-west to treat testosterone deficiency in women with testosterone pellets and menopause with estradiol pellets. Mainstream medicine had no answers for women symptomatic from loss of their sex hormones in 2003 and still has no FDA testosterone treatment for women.

Throughout her decades of practicing gynecology, Dr. Maupin found that many of the complaints and problems women turn to their doctors for have no standard answer coming from the American College of OBGYN or the FDA. Dr. Maupin admits that her “gift” is finding an answer for problems her patients bring to her that have no known medical answer. In 1986 when Dr. Maupin first began to practice medicine, she had many patients who were in their 70s and 80s who needed a treatment for their symptoms of estrogen deficiency in the form of vaginal dryness and thin vulvar skin. All the standard answers were either too expensive for her patients or made them worse. The first time she worked with a compounding pharmacist was in 1986 to create a cream to thicken the vulvar skin and make her elderly patients comfortable again. Her compounded testosterone cream that was applied nightly solved the problem! Her patients were cured! After her own trauma of losing her ovaries and her hormones, and them finding an answer with estradiol and testosterone pellets she was determined to make women aware of the answers she had found for the symptoms of aging and hormone loss. Treating women with testosterone pellets gave them back their bodies and minds,
so she had to share her discovery with more women! In 2009, Maupin decided to devote 100% of her time to BioBalance Health® and she has never looked back.
