Dealing with the physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance can be frustrating and sometimes debilitating. Ranging from minor to life-altering, the physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance can vary widely. Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream and can be caused by a malfunction in the thyroid, reproductive glands, or any other gland that produces hormones. Hormones play an essential role in the body—regulating our tissues and organs, telling them what to do and when to do it—so even small hormonal imbalances can wreak havoc on our everyday life.
Hormones regulate most major bodily processes, so the physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance will depend on which glands and hormones are affected. Physical symptoms associated with the more common causes of hormonal imbalances include unexplained weight gain or weight loss, difficulty sleeping, changes in blood pressure, brittle or weak bones, unexplained and long-term fatigue, changes in appetite, and more.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, can help relieve the physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance by restoring low hormone numbers to their ideal level. BioTE® Medical’s method of hormone therapy is customized to meet each patients’ needs and pellets are inserted subcutaneously in a quick procedure. These pellets then dissolve and are absorbed into the body, releasing doses of hormone therapy for three to six months. BioTE Medical’s method of pellet therapy uses bioidentical hormones that resemble the hormones the body produces.
