Hormone Imbalance Q & A

What is hormone imbalance?

Hormone imbalance affects both men and women as they get older due to a decrease in the production of their primary sex hormones, which includes testosterone and estrogen. The imbalance can affect how your body functions and how you feel.

Common symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Low sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Vaginal dryness or pain in women
  • Weight gain
  • Irritability, anxiety, and depression

These hormonal changes can also affect your health and increase your risk of various chronic health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

Thyroid hormone levels can also fluctuate due to various illnesses and cause symptoms such as unexplained weight gain or loss, fatigue or anxiety, or irritability or depression.

How can I improve hormone imbalance?

Dr. Hall and his team at Mountain Health Functional Medicine can improve hormone imbalance with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with BioTE pellets. Bioidentical hormones are created from natural sources, such as soy or yams, to mimic the actions of your body’s hormones.

When a patient visits Dr. Hall, he conducts a thorough examination, which includes a physical and a review of your symptoms and medical history. The goal at Mountain Health Functional Medicine isn’t to find remedies to help you manage your symptoms, but find the root cause of your symptoms so you get complete relief and improved health.

When assessing hormone imbalance, Dr. Hall conducts a blood test to determine your hormone levels. He then uses this data to create your hormone replacement therapy with BioTE.

What is BioTE?

BioTE is a bioidentical hormone replacement system that customizes hormone treatment based on your specific hormone levels and symptoms to optimize balance and help you get the best symptom relief. Once your pellet is ready, Dr. Hall inserts it through a small incision made in your buttocks. The hormones from the pellet then enter your bloodstream to restore balance.

You should begin to notice relief in your symptoms within 10 days. Due to each individual’s unique hormonal needs, there’s no standard time frame for a replacement pellet. Dr. Hall monitors you closely and replaces the pellet as needed based on your individual symptoms and bloodwork.
