Testosterone levels in men decline naturally with age. This may cause physical and mental symptoms, such as:
Women’s hormone levels can fluctuate and eventually decline due to age, menopause, or specific medical treatments. Common signs and symptoms of female hormone imbalance include:
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) helps alleviate the symptoms of hormone imbalances in men and women. BHRT is different from synthetic hormone therapy in that bioidentical hormones mimic the exact molecular structure of the hormones your body produces.
Because the hormones look identical, your body doesn’t react to them the same way it may react to synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormones are made in a lab with plant chemical extracts.
Dr. Rothrock at Healthy Outcomes AZ is a certified BioTE® provider. If you suffer from symptoms of hormone imbalance and want to explore BHRT as a treatment option, Dr. Rothrock begins with an initial consultation to discuss your concerns.
Then, he tests your hormone levels through a comprehensive blood-work panel to determine whether you’re a good candidate for BioTE pellet therapy.
If so, he orders tiny BioTE hormone pellets specifically designed to complement your unique hormonal needs. In the next appointment with you, he carefully inserts the pellets just beneath your skin after numbing the area and making an incision.
For the next three to four months the pellets continuously release hormones when your body needs them, relieving you of the unpleasant symptoms of hormone fluctuations. You will probably need to return for new pellets two-four times per year. Other than that, there’s nothing to worry about!
