Hormone imbalances drain your energy, weaken your muscles, ruin your sex drive, and, if left untreated, can cause severe health problems. The skilled team at FIX Medical Group in San Diego, California, and Scottsdale, Arizona, specializes in restoring your health and vitality with BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BioTE stabilizes your hormones with an implant that releases steady levels of a particular hormone for months. Call the nearest office today or use online booking to learn if your symptoms can improve with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Why do I need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Hormones regulate every system and function in your body, from activating your immune system, controlling your metabolism, and strengthening muscles, to regulating hunger, blood pressure, and blood sugar.

Many health conditions cause hormone imbalances, including:

  • Acute illnesses
  • Chronic health conditions
  • Long-term stress
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Lack of sleep
  • Eating disorders
  • Thyroid disease
  • Obesity

However, women and men experience age-related changes that cause low estrogen and testosterone.

Women experience a dramatic drop in estrogen at menopause. Men lose testosterone gradually, producing up to 2% less every year after 30.

When you have low hormone levels, BHRT restores balance and reverses your symptoms.

What symptoms indicate women need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Women with low estrogen experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Low sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Memory problems
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fatigue

After menopause, a woman’s risk of developing osteoporosis rises dramatically. Osteoporosis can be prevented with BHRT.

What symptoms indicate men need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Like estrogen, testosterone has a hand in regulating many body functions. For example, testosterone builds muscle mass, produces sperm, and determines fat distribution.

Men with low testosterone experience:

  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Loss of muscle mass (muscle weakness)
  • Loss of body and beard hair
  • Weak bones
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Depression and anxiety

Low energy and losing interest in sex are often the first signs of low testosterone.

What type of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy will I receive?

FIX Medical Group uses BioTE® for BHRT. BioTE has several qualities that work together to significantly reduce your risk of side effects.

Unlike synthetic hormones, BioTE’s bioidentical hormones are made from plants. They’re structured the same as the hormones naturally produced by your body.

BioTE also contains the precise dose you need, putting it into a small pellet. When your pellet is ready, your provider implants it under your skin. Each pellet lasts 3-6 months, continually releasing hormones and giving your body the steady stream of hormones needed to function at its best. When the pellet runs out, your provider implants a new one.
