Hormone replacement therapy can help men and women lead a normal and comfortable life as they age. Biote is a leader in preventive and precision medicine. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been around for over a decade and has helped many patients. Through Biote innovation, patients can use hormone optimization to take control of their health.
As people age, the body naturally reduces hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone. The hormones are vital for how the body functions. They affect the heart, brain, reproductive organs, bones, and more. When the hormones are out of balance, men and women experience various uncomfortable symptoms. BHRT helps to restore balance, relieving the symptoms. It uses compounded hormones, identical in structure to the body’s naturally produced hormones. The body identifies the replacement hormones the same way it would natural hormones.
Biote is a leader in providing solutions for individuals experiencing hormonal changes. It has translated decades of scientific findings that help with issues related to aging and the human body. Biote uses pellet therapy, a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) that helps to restore hormonal balance. The replacement hormones function just like natural hormones, helping to ease the early signs of aging. Personalized and precise care helps patients for on their specific needs.
Healthcare providers insert the pellets under the skin for hormone optimization. They are tiny, about the size of a grain of rice, and dissolve slowly over time. The in-office procedure is simple, and patients only require re-administration every three to five months, depending on their individual needs. As they dissolve, the pellets release hormones into the bloodstream. The body uses the hormones as it needs them. The body completely absorbs the pellets over time without leaving any traces.
Most women experience a significant reduction of estrogen and testosterone hormones during menopause. Men also experience a drop in testosterone, a condition known as andropause or Low T (low testosterone). When there is too little or too much of a hormone in the bloodstream, it causes hormonal imbalances.
Hormones are essential for the regulation of most body functions. Hormonal imbalance affects various body processes and causes uncomfortable side effects. Even the slightest imbalance can cause symptoms throughout the body.
