Hormone Balance Therapy Q & A

What is hormone balance therapy?

Hormone balance therapy at Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic uses BioTE bioidentical hormones, which are man-made hormones identical to those your body naturally produces, to balance hormones. In men and women, BioTE can increase testosterone, estrogen, or other hormones that naturally decline with aging.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Increased body fat
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleeping problems
  • Mood swings
  • Low sex drive 
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Reduced mental focus
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Hot flashes in women
  • Night sweats

Fortunately, you don’t have to live with these or other unpleasant symptoms linked with hormone problems, as hormone balance therapy helps you look and feel young at every age.

What happens during hormone balance therapy visits?

When you arrive at Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic for your appointment, friendly staff members greet you, weigh you, check your vital signs, and review your medical history. Your provider asks questions about your symptoms, medications, and lifestyle.

They complete a physical exam and recommend you undergo blood tests to assess hormone levels and determine which hormone balance therapy is best for you. Blood tests can also check for thyroid disorders, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, other disease risk factors, and vitamin deficiencies.

What should I expect during hormone balance therapy?

During hormone balance therapy, your Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic provider numbs a treatment area near your upper buttocks. They make a tiny, painless incision and insert a BioTE pellet just beneath the skin before closing the incision. 

Over time, hormone pellets release a steady stream of hormones into your body in recommended amounts to keep your levels within a normal range. The effects of BioTE pellets often last 3-5 months, but your hormone specialist can replace the pellet as needed to offer long-lasting anti-aging results.

Other types of hormone therapy include pills, gels, creams, patches, injections, and vaginal applications for women.
