Hormone Imbalance Symptoms
Men and women can experience different symptoms when they’re dealing with a hormone imbalance. For instance, men have symptoms like being low on energy, increased anxiety, a decrease in muscle mass, and decreased performance sexually. Women typically notice weight gain, mood swings, lower libido, and chronic fatigue. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, it’s likely a hormone imbalance.
What is Pellet Therapy?
BioTE hormone pellet therapy involves the insertion of a small pellet that contains hormones under your skin. The pellet dissolves, therefore releasing these hormones into your body. The incision is typically made directly above the buttocks. While there’s little downtime, we recommend that you involve soaking in water, such as in a bathtub, or strenuous exercise for a week or so.
Beginnings provides pellet therapy for both men and women. Men receive testosterone pellets, while women get estrogen pellets and combined with testosterone. The dose can be different for every patient. To make sure that you’re getting the ideal amount of hormones for your body, pellets are catered to your specific hormone imbalance case.
Before administering this therapy, Dr. Theocharides will have a thorough consultation with you. He’ll talk to you and note the symptoms you’re experiencing, making sure that a hormone imbalance is what’s going on. Extensive lab work will be done to confirm this. The lab work will also provide Dr. Theocharides with the information he needs to recommend a specific dosage for your body.
When Will I See the Results?
Your body is unique, as is your dosage. The results can show up at different intervals for everyone. Typically, you see some improvement within the first four weeks. However, getting to your optimal level of improvement may take up to six months.
Pellet therapy takes care of a variety of symptoms. For women, you should notice a decrease in hot flashes, menstrual migraines, low moods, and an improvement in heart health. Men typically see a decrease in fatigue, muscle weakness, night sweats, weight gain, and an increase in your sex drive.
