You already know that changes in your hormone levels affect you. You lived through your teenage years and all the hormonal changes they brought your way. And if you’re a woman who hasn’t yet gone through menopause, you’re probably already bracing for the unpleasant symptoms shifting hormones will bring as you age.
But women in menopause aren’t the only ones detrimentally affected by changing hormone levels. Men too, experience hormonal changes with age. As you get older, your body slows its production of hormones that control everything from your metabolism to your libido to your mood. No surprise here: that often takes its toll.
That’s why Dr. Timothy Scott Beck and the team at Life Point Medical in Clayton, Georgia, provide BioTE hormone replacement therapy.
Are you a candidate for this treatment? Here are a few signs you might benefit from BioTE:
One key symptom of a hormone imbalance is chronic fatigue. That’s thanks, in part, to the fact that the hormones that play a role in your sleep-wake cycle drop off with age.
Trouble falling asleep and staying asleep could be telltale signs that you’d benefit from BioTE.
Shifting hormones can also shift your physical appearance. A puffy or rounded face is a sign of hormone imbalance, as are dry, brittle hair and nails. A hormone imbalance can also be to blame for weight gain and muscle mass loss.
If you’re observing physical changes and can’t explain them, don’t wait to talk to our team at Life Point Medical. Dr. Beck can help you determine if a hormone imbalance causes these changes.
Aging means a decrease in testosterone levels for men and estrogen levels for women. This brings about a whole host of sexual wellness problems. For starters, it can decrease your libido.
But even if your sex drive hasn’t changed, dropping hormone levels can lead to issues in the bedroom like vaginal dryness for women and erectile dysfunction for men. Fortunately, BioTE gives you a way to protect your sex life through the years.
Hot flashes aren’t just for women either. If you’re a male and experience sudden periods of hotness, don’t wait to talk about it. Hot flashes are one of the most significant indicators that your hormones are imbalanced.
As it changes your hormone levels, aging can interfere with your quality of life. But it doesn’t have to be this way. To find out if you’re a candidate for BioTE hormone replacement therapy, call Life Point Medical at 706-534-6566 or request an appointment through our website.
