Hormonal imbalances affect a large percentage of women. Even those who have not yet experienced the symptoms are aware of them because they know someone who is struggling with the outward signs and the feelings of being in an unhealthy state. The causes of hormonal imbalance are many, and some of these causes are not completely understood. However, we do know that age, family history and genetics, pregnancy history and pregnancy complications, and weight control all play a factor. One of the newest approaches to hormonal imbalance issues is a replacement therapy that utilizes specialized processes to create a better balance of hormones. Known as pellet hormone replacement therapy, this treatment allows for better hormonal balance 24 hours per day.
Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance
Emotional symptoms include intolerance to exercise, irritability with no rational cause, excessive fatigue or mental stress, and foggy thinking. Outward signs can include increased hair growth on the arms and face, painful menstruation, sensitive and tender breasts, and many other symptoms. It’s important to talk to a qualified medical professional about these symptoms because they may not be caused by a hormonal imbalance. If they are, pellet hormone replacement therapy may help.
Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy to the Rescue
Unlike pills and creams that deliver replacement hormones in spurts, pellets constantly provide the proper dosage over a long period of time. Placed just under the skin, the implantation is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in a single visit. Depending on the severity of symptoms and the final diagnosis of the imbalance, multiple pellets may be implanted, but it all depends on the unique case.
It’s important to remember that we cannot agree to perform this type of therapy unless we know the client’s medical history. This is why a consultation is necessary. We want to review the diagnosis and prognosis, and we also want to view the family history and other medical conditions that are included in the exam. However, once we know the specifics of the imbalance, it’s extremely easy for us to determine whether or not pellet hormone replacement therapy is a good solution.
