Hormonal imbalance is common as you age and can cause symptoms that have a major impact on your daily life. Symptoms may start gradually, and you may have difficulty pinpointing the problem. Many patients report that they just don’t feel like themselves. You may feel fatigue, have changes in mood and difficulty concentrating, or notice weight gain and challenges losing weight.
Led by physician Rae Lynne Kinler, MD and a team of certified physician assistants and certified nurse practitioners, the providers of Dolce Vida Medical Spa offer one of the latest advancements in hormone therapy. BioTE is hormone pellet therapy that uses bioidentical hormones to restore your hormonal balance so that you feel like yourself again.
Here’s what to know about the signs of hormonal imbalance and how BioTE can help you reclaim your vitality.
Some people are lucky enough to have few or no symptoms as they grow older and hormone levels decline. Others may experience a host of symptoms that are not only uncomfortable but also greatly impact the ability to function at your best. Hormonal imbalance symptoms for men and women include:
Symptoms may vary from mild to severe and can impact several aspects of your daily life — affecting everything from your work productivity to your relationships and your ability to care for your loved ones.
BioTE hormone pellet therapy is a custom-compounded hormone replacement therapy that uses plant-based bioidentical hormones. This means that the hormones are chemically identical to the ones your body normally makes. When your body receives BioTE hormones, it uses them in the same way that it uses its own hormones.
BioTE comes in a very tiny pellet — about the size of a grain of rice. It’s placed under the skin, where it releases a consistent level of hormones to bring your levels back into balance.
Traditional hormone replacement therapy releases hormones all at once. By providing a consistent level of hormones, BioTE ensures that you receive the right amount of hormones when you need them. This reduces the risk of under or over exposure to hormones.
BioTE is a convenient, effective hormone replacement therapy that improves symptoms of hormone imbalance.
Your provider uses your lab results to determine an effective starting dose. Repeat labs are performed and adjustment is made to ensure that you receive an effective dose of BioTE to manage your symptoms.
Instead of relying on daily creams or pills, BioTE remains in place for an extended time. Women generally receive a new pellet every 3-5 months, while men typically receive a new pellet every 5-6 months.
You can do something about hormonal imbalance. Hormone replacement is the most effective way to relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
