Bioidentical Hormones Q & A

How do I know if I have a hormone imbalance?

You might think fluctuating hormone levels are reserved for teenagers. However, as we age, our bodies begin to produce less of certain hormones that regulate the way we feel, including testosterone and estrogen. The reduction of hormone production in your body can throw you into a state of hormone imbalance, leading to a range of symptoms.

Some of the most common symptoms of a hormone imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes
  • Decreased motivation
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Thinning hair
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Mental fog
  • Irritability
  • Decreased sexual wellness, including erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness

If any of these symptoms are affecting you, True Care Health & Wellness offers relief through bioidentical hormones.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are all-natural, plant-based hormones that True Care Health & Wellness introduces to your body to replace the hormones that are no longer producing naturally.

Although there are a variety of hormone therapies available today, Dr. Skubisz and Dr. Barrantes have chosen to use BioTE® bioidentical hormones at their practice.

Because these hormones are bioidentical to the ones your body creates, your body can’t tell them apart from the hormones it produces on its own. This minimizes the risk of side effects and increases the effectiveness of your treatments.

With these bioidentical hormones, the True Care Health & Wellness team can rebalance your hormone levels, helping you transition more comfortably as your body adjusts to its new hormone production levels.

How does bioidentical hormone therapy work?

True Care Health & Wellness uses BioTE’s pellet-based bioidentical hormone therapy to give you access to an effective, easy-to-maintain means to balance your hormones.

With this treatment type, a small pellet — specifically compounded with the right hormones to rebalance your body — is implanted under your skin in a quick in-office procedure.

Dr. Skubisz and Dr. Barrantes use the latest, most accurate testing to identify your current hormone levels so they can tailor the bioidentical hormones in the pellet to you, giving you relief from your symptoms and helping you feel your best.

Over time, your body absorbs that pellet. To continue your results, you can have a new pellet implanted as needed (usually every few months).

Your changing hormone levels don’t have to change your life. To learn more about how bioidentical hormones can help you feel like yourself again, call or book your appointment online with True Care Health & Wellness.
