How do I know if my hormones levels are off?

From hair growth to your ability to lose weight, the list of processes controlled by hormones is virtually endless. Because of this, fluctuations in your hormones or abnormal hormone levels can cause a wide variety of symptoms, which can range from mild to severe. In some cases, changing hormone levels are expected, such as when a woman is going through menopause. Other times, however, hormone levels become unexpectedly high or low due to other factors, including underlying conditions, the use of certain medications, stress, and more. Some of the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss resistance
  • Thinning hair or hair loss
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog
  • Low energy level
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Loss of bone density
  • Low libido
  • Decreased sexual function

If any of these symptoms are disrupting your daily life or interfering with your overall health and well-being, you may be a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with BioTE.

What is BioTE?

BioTE manufactures a widely popular line of bioidentical hormone replacement medication that utilizes plant-based hormones that are designed to mimic naturally occurring hormones identically. Because of this, many patients find that the medication works faster and more efficiently than synthetic hormone replacement therapies. BioTE hormones are delivered via a unique pellet system. During your BHRT appointment in Newport Beach, tiny pellets will be inserted beneath the skin. The pellets work to deliver a consistent dose of hormones over the course of several weeks or months, which provides patients with steady and reliable symptom relief. Some of the most exciting benefits of using BioTE hormone replacement therapy include:

  • Enhanced mood
  • Higher energy levels
  • Better mental clarity
  • Improved sexual function and libido
  • Increased ability to manage weight
  • Feel younger and happier overall
