What Are Hormones?
Produced within the body, hormones regulate many different systems involving reproduction, mood, bone density, cholesterol metabolism, weight, muscle-to-fat ratio, and more.
How Can Hormones Become Unbalanced?
While our hormones can become unbalanced as we age, there are many other things can impact hormone balance in men. Our diet, consistently experiencing stress, living a sedentary lifestyle, genetic predisposition, and even some environmental factors can often impact hormonal balance.
What Therapies Are Available to Address Hormone Imbalance in Men?
At BioTE Medical we offer a different approach. Our method offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in the form of pellets from FDA-regulated compounding pharmacies. These pellets, which are the size of a grain of rice, are inserted subcutaneously in a quick procedure. The pellets will then dissolve and be absorbed into the body, providing consistent doses of hormone therapy for three to six months.
What are the Common Physiological Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men?
Excessive estrogen production in men can lead to a condition called gynecomastia, or the development of breasts. This frequently happens in men struggling with obesity because estrogen can be produced by fat cells, leading to a cycle of overproduction that can quickly become difficult to break if there isn’t a medical intervention. Sexual dysfunction is another common symptom.
What are the Common Emotional Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men?
A loss of libido is the most commonly reported emotional symptom of hormonal imbalance in men. Trouble thinking clearly, often called "brain fog," is another common symptom. Irritability and mood swings are also frequently cited by patients. Chronic exhaustion, low mood, anxiousness, and mood swings may also be experienced by those with a hormone imbalance.
