BioTe Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Q & A

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

The endocrine system is made up of glands that regulate your body’s hormones. Your hormones control a variety of processes in your body including your mood, metabolism, and reproduction.

When your hormone levels veer out of balance, any one of those processes can be disrupted. Some symptoms of hormonal imbalance in both men and women include:

  • Mood problems
  • Irritability
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight changes
  • Fatigue
  • Foggy thinking

Symptoms particular to hormone changes during menopause include:

  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety and depression

Fortunately, Dr. DiMasi can treat hormone imbalances with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Dr. DiMasi uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to get you back to where you need to be. The bioidentical hormones come from plant estrogens and have the same molecular form as the ones your body creates.

Menopause is one of the most common instances in a woman’s life when she might use BHRT because it can ease some of the symptoms. Dr. DiMasi uses BioTe® brand BHRT to fine-tune your hormones.

What is BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy?

BioTe uses a system of steady-release pellets to give your body a consistent supply of hormones. Each pellet is customized to your body chemistry from the results of testing your hormones.

Dr. DiMasi inserts the subcutaneous pellets 2-4 times per year, so you can forget about them in between appointments. Placing them takes only a matter of minutes. Dr. DiMasi makes a small incision, inserts the pellet below the skin, and bandages the site.

The body absorbs the entire pellet over time. Since the pellets release hormones steadily, you don’t experience such severe hormone fluctuations as you might with pills or injections.

What conditions do you treat with bioidentical hormone therapy?

Aging causes hormone disruptions in both men and women. Women’s hormones fluctuate throughout their reproductive cycles, including menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause.

You may be a good candidate for BHRT if your hormones have been disrupted by:

  • Testosterone deficiency
  • Estrogen deficiency
  • Menopause
  • Hysterectomy
  • Chemotherapy
