Though we don’t consciously notice their effects, hormones play a vital role in the regulation of many bodily systems. In fact, many people fail understand just how significant an effect hormones have on their body. A hormone imbalance can cause many side effects, including mood swings, depression, fatigue, low libido, and much more.
Unfortunately, the effects of hormonal imbalance are often misattributed to something else or written off as natural changes; hormone imbalance is more likely to occur the older we get, and age is frequently blamed for the issues caused by hormonal imbalance.
How then, do we reverse the effects of hormonal imbalance? BioTE bioidentical hormone pellets offer a unique, safe solution for those suffering from a hormonal imbalance. Easily inserted just underneath the skin, the pellet gradually releases hormones into the body evenly, 24-hours-a-day, for up to three months. If you think you might have a hormonal imbalance, or you have undergone hormone therapy in the past and are interested in switching to the BioTE method of treatment, read on for a list of questions you should ask yourself and your doctor before starting BioTE treatments.
Are My Symptoms Caused by Hormonal Imbalance?
The first thing you should do is seek out a professional for evaluation. Talk about your experiences, share your symptoms, and really analyze your moods and emotions. Your doctor can help you determine if the symptoms you’re experiencing are indeed caused by a hormonal imbalance.
Will BioTE Hormone Therapy Improve My Symptoms?
The next thing you should ask is whether hormone therapy would be appropriate to alleviate your symptoms. While hormonal imbalance is often caused by aging, other factors such as pregnancy or treatment for cancer can also affect your hormone levels and create an imbalance. Consult with your doctor to see if hormone therapy is appropriate to deal with your symptoms, or if another method would be more appropriate.
What Sort of Benefits Can I Expect?
If you determine that BioTE hormone pellets are right for you, ask about what sort of benefits you will see from your treatment. Hormone therapy can provide many helpful boosts to your body, including:
• Improved libido
• Increased energy
• Increased muscle & bone mass
• Menopause/Andropause symptom relief
• And much more!
BioTE hormone pellets generally have no negative side effects, but you should also discuss those with your doctor as well to make sure you are comfortable receiving the treatment.
