What is Hormone Optimization?
As you age, your body starts producing less of key hormones like testosterone and estrogen. When those hormones are out of balance, it can cause a broad range of symptoms such as weight gain, hot flashes, low libido, poor sleep, mood swings, and more.
We are proud to be offering the Biote Method- identical hormone optimization therapy!
Hormonal imbalances may occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body
Sign of Hormone Imbalance:
Decreased Sex Drive
Low Sex Drive
Loss of Muscle Mass
Increased Body Fat
Decreased Bone Mass
Elevated Blood Sugar
