Hormonal change is a natural part of life, and Dallas women will experience several seasons in life when their hormones will inevitably end up a little skewed. However, there are many other factors to consider when thinking about hormone imbalance in women. In order to help her patients to feel more like themselves and live life to the fullest, Dr. Brady strives to understand the specific causes of hormone deficiencies in each of her patients and the resulting symptoms from which they suffer before making a treatment recommendation.
Hormonal changes in women occur when there is too much or too little of a specific hormone in the bloodstream. To restore balance and improve the overall well-being of her patients, Dr. Brady offers an advanced form of hormone therapy – The BioTE Program.
BioTE Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets
BioTE is a medical approach to balancing hormones with bioidentical, all-natural pellets made from plants, not in factories. This treatment method optimizes hormonal levels to help women have more energy, lose weight, enjoy better sleep, and invigorate their sex drive.
Before administering BioTE to her individual patients, Dr. Brady always collects a full lab work up including an exhausted hormone evaluation as well as a complete vitamin overview. After reviewing a detailed medical and family history, Dr. Brady will also ask you about your symptoms and determine the right mix of hormones for your specific needs. By finding the optimal combination, Dallas women can experience a better quality of life.
What Causes Hormonal Imbalance in Women?
It’s unfortunate, but women naturally experience more hormonal fluctuation throughout their lifetime compared to men. Instances of hormonal changes include:
- pregnancy, childbirth, and while breastfeeding
- perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause
Additionally, there are medical conditions that can cause hormonal imbalance in women, including:
- polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- hormone replacement or birth control medications
- early menopause
- primary ovarian insufficiency (POI)
- ovarian cancer
Not exclusive to women, there are still more factors that can affect hormones and cause imbalance:
- Chronic stress
- Hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia
- Hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism
- Being overweight
- Poor diet and nutrition
- Reader-Willis syndrome
- Cushing’s Syndrome
- Addison’s Disease
- Tumors or cancer
- Severe allergic reactions
When women experience hormonal imbalance, they can have a lower sex drive, discomfort during sex, decreased energy, and weight gain.
What to Expect From BioTE Hormone Therapy
Dr. Brady’s Dallas patients often have their first BioTE treatment during their first lab review appointment. This therapy option is simple, non-invasive, and fast. In fact, the entire placement process only takes about three minutes.
- Dallas patients can remain clothed during their treatment.
- Dr. Brady and her expert staff will sterilize and numb a small area of the hip to eliminate discomfort during placement.
- A small BioTE pellet, about the size of a grain of rice, is placed just under the skin.
Most women achieve their optimal hormone levels after their first pallet placement. However, Dr. Brady will place an additional BioTE pellet free of charge for patients who do not achieve optimal levels after the first treatment. Patients will return every 3-6 months for a BioTE repellet once the ideal dose has been confirmed.
