At times, it can be difficult to articulate exactly what is bothering you about your health. Our internal medicine Lewisville TX specialists (locations also in Boyd, Benbrook, Bedford and Justin) often hear patients describe it as just feeling “off.”
If this scenario sounds familiar to you, there’s a chance you are battling a hormone imbalance. The good news is that – at Your Family Medical – we are very familiar with this condition. In fact, today we’re going to share some basic information about a popular treatment plan for hormone imbalances: Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy.
Signs of Hormone Imbalance
Before we dive into talking about treatment, let’s take a moment to discuss what hormone imbalance looks and feels like. Some of the common symptoms (also referred to as just feeling “off”) can include:
- Hot flashes or night sweats
- Unexplained weight gain
- Lack of energy
- Erectile dysfunction
- Vaginal dryness or discomfort with intercourse
- Difficulty focusing
Also, it’s a common misconception that hormone imbalance only applies to women. It’s very common for fluctuations in insulin levels, adrenaline and growth hormones to affect both men and women, especially once he or she is over the age of 60. (Check out this video from our patient education library to learn more about how this affects men!)
If you or a loved one has been experiencing several of these symptoms for more than three months, we recommend reaching out to our hormone replacement therapy Lewisville TX specialists (locations also in Boyd, Benbrook, Bedford, and Justin) for a consultation.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Thanks to many decades of research, there are several approved treatments for hormone imbalance. At Your Family Medical, one of our preferred methods of treatment is called Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). BHRT uses hormone-rich pellets which work to support and correct the body’s hormone needs.
This therapy works with the use of pellets, which are inserted under the skin in a very quick, simple procedure. These pellets then become the source of necessary hormones for the patient’s body, offering an on-demand supply for each individual’s needs.
Benefits of Pellet Therapy
This is the good news: studies associated with the BHRT Pellets have shown incredible results across the United States. Some of the improvements seen include:
- Decreased mental fogginess
- Increased energy levels
- Restored libido
- Reduced irritability
- Reduced anxiety and stress
- Weight loss
- Reduced menopause-type symptoms
- Much, much more!
