Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

 

Your hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems embedded in your body. They act as messengers, designed to interact with specific target cells and organs and provoke a change or result. As we age, hormone production changes and hormonal imbalance can occur. Unbalanced hormones can have a variety of side effects and symptoms. Our certified BioTE Medical providers offer BHRT pellet therapy, nutraceuticals, and a high-quality standard of care to patients. 

We use a holistic approach and look at “optimizing” other hormone levels (like thyroid, progesterone), vitamin levels (like B12, D, folate), and cholesterol levels. These labs are included our Biote Lab panel for Healthy Connections patients.

Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances.

Studies have shown that bio-identical hormones have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.

What kind of estrogen is in the bio-identical pellets?

BioTE Medical uses bio-identical estradiol in the pellets, meaning that the chemical structure is the same as the hormones naturally produced in your body.

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time to resolve.
