Hormone Imbalance in Men Q & A
What symptoms suggest a hormone imbalance in men?
Hormone imbalances are often associated with women going through menopause, but men can experience hormone imbalances, too. The primary male sex hormone testosterone naturally declines with age and steep declines can cause unpleasant, life-altering symptoms.
Men who have a hormone imbalance may experience:
- Weight gain
- Brain fog
- Decreased libido and sexual performance
- Inability to maintain muscle mass
- Depression and anxiety
You may also experience more acne, as well as unstable blood sugar levels and low blood pressure. Together, these symptoms can cause low self-esteem, which only compounds the effects of hormonal imbalances.
How is a hormone imbalance in men treated?
You don’t have to tolerate the effects of hormonal imbalance. Dr. Grier can help you achieve hormone optimization with BioTE hormone replacement therapy.
BioTE pellet therapy uses bioidentical hormones, which are made with all-natural ingredients that are structurally identical to the hormones your body naturally makes.
The pellets are implanted just under your skin so you receive a steady stream of hormones to balance your levels. The supplemental hormones can reduce or eliminate many uncomfortable symptoms associated with low testosterone.
What should I expect with BioTE hormone therapy?
Bioidentical hormones from BioTE offer one of the most effective ways to regain your hormonal balance. Dr. Grier inserts the pellets in just a few minutes in a procedure that’s virtually painless.
Within 7-10 days, you’ll start to experience the vast benefits. Your sexual health, vitality, and energy are restored.
The pellets may be replaced regularly and the dosage adjusted depending on how your body responds to treatment.
Who is a candidate for hormone therapy?
Dr. Grier reviews your personal and family medical history to determine if you’re a good candidate for BioTE hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone therapy isn’t right for everyone as some people don’t tolerate the treatment well or have preexisting conditions that make hormone therapy too risky.
If you’re suffering from the effects of a hormone imbalance, don’t despair. At Melissa Grier, MD Women’s Healthcare, BioTE hormone pellet therapy can offer relief. Call to schedule a consultation or book online today.
