Hormones regulate every part of your body. Though they’re known for controlling your reproductive system, their reach extends to every cell, organ, and function, including your brain.
You need a specific amount of every hormone to maintain your energy and regulate essential activities. A few examples include:
Women and men develop hormone imbalances as a result of many possible problems. You may have:
You can also have a hormone imbalance even if you don’t have an underlying health problem because hormone production declines as you get older. For example, aging naturally leads to lower levels of insulin, cortisol, thyroid, and growth hormones.
Women lose nearly all of their estrogen at menopause. Testosterone levels in men decline by about 2% every year after they turn 20.
Hormone imbalances cause health problems affecting your physical, emotional, and psychological health.
Symptoms commonly found in women and men include:
Women develop additional symptoms in the years before, during, and after menopause, such as:
Men also have other symptoms of a hormone imbalance. They may experience:
Hormone imbalances also increase your risk of developing chronic health problems like heart disease and osteoporosis.
BHRT lessens your symptoms and prevents health problems by restoring hormones to their normal levels. Prime Wellness uses BioTE hormones because they’re made from plants and bioidentical, meaning they have the same structure as your body’s natural hormones.
BioTE also customizes your BHRT to meet your precise hormone needs, placing your medication in a small pellet that the team at Prime Wellness inserts under your skin. The pellet gradually releases a natural supply of hormones for several months; then your provider implants another pellet.
