Hormones play a critical role inside your body. As chemical messengers, your hormones tell your organs what to do while controlling processes such as your metabolism. A hormone imbalance can wreak havoc throughout your body, causing symptoms that can greatly diminish the quality of your life.
Balance Hormone Center specializes in hormone replacement testing and therapies to get you back to feeling your best.
Symptoms of Hormone Imbalances in Men
In men, underlying hormone imbalances appear as symptoms such as:
- Reduced sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Reduced muscle mass
- Reduced body hair growth
- Unexplained weight gain or loss
- Low energy
- Brain fog
How Is a Hormone Imbalance Test Performed?
There isn't a single test to determine a hormone imbalance. You'll first need to visit us to discuss your symptoms. This consult will help our team determine which testing method is best for you.
Most hormone imbalances can be detected through a simple blood test. We will take a sample of your blood and send it to a lab for testing.
You may undergo an ultrasound so we can look for any issues with your testicles, thyroid or pituitary gland. Additional testing may also include thyroid scans, x-rays, MRIs, biopsies or sperm count.
What Treatments Are Available for an Imbalance?
Your treatment options depend on the results of your test. At Balance Hormone Center, we offer a wide range of in-office treatments.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
As you age, it's common for your body to lower its production of testosterone, the primary male sex hormone. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can replace testosterone, helping you build or retain muscle mass, eliminate erectile dysfunction, increase libido, increase memory and more.
Pituitary Imbalance Treatment
Your pituitary gland regulates hormone production in your endocrine glands. When dysfunction of the gland interferes with your hormones, may symptoms can occur. We offer pituitary imbalance treatment such as prednisone treatment for deficiencies in ACTH, thyroxine tablets to replace TSH and more.
Vitamin B and D Deficiency Treatment
Vitamin B12 and D deficiencies can devastate your body. We offer both vitamin B and D replacement therapies to help resolve your symptoms.
