Hormone Replacement Therapy
Houston and Lake Jackson
What Are the Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance and Hormone Loss?
Hormones contribute to the way you look, the way you feel, and even the way you age. Unfortunately, you begin to lose certain hormones—notably estrogen and testosterone—by your mid-20s. As a result, you might feel tired, depressed, and just not like yourself.
For women in Houston and Lake Jackson, hormone imbalance can go a long time before you even realize what is happening. Real imbalances can often be dismissed as normal and can be incorrectly treated as anxiety, depression, insomnia, or other conditions. Untreated hormonal imbalances can cause serious health issues, and it is important for women to keep aware of their hormonal health as a part of their overall lifestyle.
For men, hormone imbalances can lead to weight gain, mental fatigue, and irritability quite quickly as testosterone levels decline. Hormonal imbalances due to age are not localized to women. Men suffer a form of ‘Andropause’ as well, and it can lead to serious health conditions later in life.
Symptoms of hormonal imbalance and hormone loss include:
- Fatigue/lack of energy
- Breast lumps
- Weight gain
- Difficulty sleeping
- Night sweats
- Painful intercourse
- Reduced libido and performance
- Loss of muscle mass
- Hot flashes
- Anxiety/mood swings
- Loss of drive and a competitive edge
If you have experienced some of these disheartening symptoms, you are probably a good candidate for the new BioTE hormone therapy in our Houston or Lake Jackson office.
What Causes Hormonal Imbalance and Hormone Loss?
Hormonal imbalance and hormone loss occur for any number of reasons, including natural changes as you age, early menopause, stress, and dietary issues.
The results of early hormone loss can be devastating. Perhaps you’re in college, but you already feel the effects of aging. Maybe you’re a young father who has lost his sex drive before the age of 30, or you’re a young parent who feels too tired and irritable to keep up with a growing toddler.
Some reasons for hormonal imbalance and hormone loss include:
- Thyroid conditions
- Parathyroid conditions
- Poor diet
- Weight gain
- Weight loss
- Several medical conditions
- Exposure to chemicals and toxins

Is BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy Safe?
Hormone replacement therapy sometimes relies on giving Houston and Lake Jackson patients synthetic or manufactured hormones. There are significant differences in the risks, benefits, and safety between natural and synthetic hormone replacement. These significant health concerns were brought to light in the early 2000’s, and physicians began looking for alternatives. They have found those alternative in natural hormone replacement programs like BioTE.
Fortunately, BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy is plant-based and uses hormones bioidentical to the compounds found within the human body. They are specially formulated, but completely natural with no synthetic hormone ingredients.

What is the BioTE Pellet Therapy?
Specially formulated BioTE pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, are injected just beneath the skin in the hip or buttock area. This is a simple, 15-minute procedure, through which your circulatory system distributes and absorbs the hormones consistently throughout the lifecycle of the pellet, 24/7.
There are other forms of delivery, but most just don’t cut it. Creams, pills, injections, and capsules cannot provide a steady stream of hormone delivery, and subject patients to a rollercoaster of hormone levels that can make symptoms even worse than before unless that patient regularly attends to their treatments. Pellet systems are fast, painless, and last a long time without any input from the patient.
Before we recommend Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for you, our nurse practitioner will schedule an in-depth consultation to discuss your specific symptoms. A comprehensive blood test will give us a benchwork analysis of your hormone levels. Throughout the therapy, a combination of regular office visits and follow-up blood work analyses will take place. This helps to ensure that you are receiving the proper dose at the proper frequency to attain and retain optimal results.
BioTE Pellet Therapy allows patients age healthier and live happier. Hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems in your body, and they are incredibly complex and have very powerful effects on your wellbeing. Therefore, proper treatments for hormonal issues must be unique to each patient and properly balanced to provide optimum results.
