Telltale Signs of a Hormone Imbalance

Hormone imbalance is more common than you may think, and it affects both women and men. Did you know that by age 45, almost 40% of men have below normal testosterone levels? Likewise, an estimated 2 million women enter menopause annually, and even before they officially reach menopause, hormone levels decline steadily for several years.  

An imbalance in hormones impacts many aspects of life. You may not be able to put your finger on it but may realize that you no longer feel like your usual, vibrant self. Perhaps you’ve noticed a dip in libido, a change in mood, or your stamina just isn’t what it used to be. A hormone evaluation is a wise step in getting answers.

Board-certified physician Dana Brownell, MD, and the team at Westport Medispa are devoted to helping you look and feel your best. Hormone imbalance is a commonly overlooked and underappreciated cause of various issues, including problems losing weight, loss of lean muscle, decreased sex drive, and reduced stamina. If you aren’t feeling like yourself lately, schedule a visit with Dr. Brownell for a hormone evaluation.

There are many signs of hormone imbalance in men and women. We’ve discussed some of those signs and symptoms, but this is by no means an exhaustive list. If you suspect that hormones are out of whack, it’s best to have your hormones evaluated regardless of symptoms.

Treating hormone imbalance

Dr. Brownell uses bioidentical hormone replacement BioTE® to restore hormonal balance. BioTE is plant-based hormone therapy that is identical in molecular structure to the hormones your body naturally makes. Your body uses BioTE as it would its own hormones.

Hormone replacement therapy with BioTE is individualized. Following a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Brownell creates a treatment plan to give you just the right amount of hormones to bring you back into balance.

This means you won’t have too much or too little. BioTE releases small, physiological doses of hormones to keep you balanced, instead of releasing all of the hormones at once. This helps to ensure that you aren’t overexposed to hormones, which can cause side effects.

Dr. Brownell uses your lab results to determine your starting dose. Adjustments are made as necessary based on repeat labs and an assessment of your symptoms.

BioTE is delivered in a very small, custom-compounded pellet that is about the size of a grain of rice. Dr. Brownell injects the pellet under the skin where it releases the hormones your body needs.

Women may receive a replacement pellet every three-to-five months, while men may receive a new pellet every five-to-six months.

You don’t have to struggle with hormone imbalance. To learn more about hormone replacement therapy with BioTE contact our team at Westport MediSpa to schedule your initial consultation. Restore your vitality today!
