Hormone Pellet Therapy for Fatigue in Elgin, IL
The hormone imbalances women and men experience at the onset of perimenopause, menopause and andropause can cause many unwanted side effects, including fatigue. A drop in hormone levels can cause disruption in sleep that leads to feeling tired and irritable during the day.
The fatigue may come on gradually or suddenly; fatigue can be vague and caused by many things. In women, there is a link between early menopause and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), according to a recent study. Women are two to four times more likely to have CFS than men, and the condition is most common among women in their 40s, according to researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Other conditions, including adrenal fatigue and low testosterone, can cause fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is a condition in which the adrenal glands function, but not well enough to maintain optimal hormone levels. In this condition, capacity in the adrenal glands has been diminished, usually by overstimulation that can be caused by a single intense stress or by chronic stress that has a cumulative effect.
However, hormone pellet therapy for fatigue can optimize hormone levels in women and men and help ward off conditions like CFS. Imagine experiencing deeper, uninterrupted sleep that eliminates feelings of fatigue during the day.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Fatigue?
Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment designed to combat hormonal imbalance that can lead to fatigue. Many people with this condition don't realize that the cause of their fatigue is hormonal. But if it's difficult to get out of bed in the morning and you're consuming caffeinated beverages and other stimulants just to get through the day, it may be the result of a hormone imbalance.
What if you could optimize your hormone levels using bioidentical hormones? The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy can optimize the levels of hormones that have dropped to eliminate fatigue and exhaustion. Once the hormones are balanced, men and women tend to sleep better and feel refreshed and like themselves during the day.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy for Fatigue Work?
Hormone pellet therapy contains estrogen and testosterone that are derived from natural sources to replicate the body's normal hormone levels. Implants of these hormones that are placed under the skin consistently release small doses of hormones that have a therapeutic effect.
Unlike typical oral, transdermal and injection forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels that go up and down, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations — the BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months.
