Hormones play an important role in health and wellness for men and women. As we age, though, hormone levels can become imbalanced and lead to a host of unwanted symptoms, such as decreased energy, memory problems, and diminished libido. Dr. David Yi, Dr. April Enard, Dr. Paula Lansford-Seabaugh, and PA Carol Addy PAC, the experienced providers at Trophy Club Family Medicine in Trophy Club, TX, offer bio-identical hormone therapy replacement to bring hormones back into balance.
What are the Signs or Symptoms of a Hormone Imbalance?
The levels of different hormones in the body naturally decline with age for both men and women.

Some signs of a low or imbalanced hormone levels include:

- Irritability, anxiety, or depression
- Weight gain, especially around the mid-section
- Difficulty losing weight even with exercise and eating healthy
- Reduced mental focus or memory problems
- Diminished muscle strength
- Muscle or joint pain

What is Bio-identical Hormone Therapy Replacement?
Bio-identical hormone therapy replacement is the answer to hormone imbalances in men and women. It is a treatment for balancing hormone levels, which reduces unwanted symptoms and improves quality of life. Hormone replacement therapy is available in different forms, including pills, injections, pellets, patches, and creams or gels.
At our family medicine office in Trophy Club, TX, the bio-identical hormone therapy replacement we use is called BioTE®. This therapy utilizes hormone pellets that are placed just under the skin. The pellets contain all-natural bio-identical testosterone or estrogen that is extremely similar to the hormones naturally produced by the body. The pellets release the testosterone or estrogen, as needed, to maintain balanced and optimal hormone levels.
