5 Reasons Biote Hormone Replacement Therapy May be Right for You

A hormone imbalance can have a profound effect on how your body works and how you feel. If your hormones are out of whack, there’s no need to struggle with symptoms. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help.

If you’re struggling to lose weight, having trouble concentrating, or just don’t feel like yourself, you may have a hormone imbalance. As we age, levels of crucial hormones decline, and sometimes it happens earlier than expected.

When women and men experience a hormone deficiency, it can impact nearly every aspect of their life. You may notice a decrease in stamina, a diminished sex drive, low mood, and problems sleeping. If you have a hormone imbalance, you may be a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Board-certified OB/GYN and anti-aging medicine specialist David Reeves, MD, FACOG, leads the team at Medical Aesthetics & Laser in The Woodlands, Texas. Dr. Reeves uses BioTe® hormone replacement therapy to treat hormone imbalances and help women and men reclaim their vitality.

The basics of BioTE hormone replacement therapy

Bioidentical hormones, unlike conventional hormones, are structurally similar to those produced by the body, and they mimic the body's natural hormones. The BioTE system uses tiny pellets — which are placed in your hip/upper gluteal area — and it releases hormones into your bloodstream.

The dose in the hormone pellets are tailored to your body's needs, which ensures that you receive just the right amount. The team at Medical Aesthetics & Laser uses the results of your hormone blood tests to identify the proper dose. Pellet implants are inserted beneath the skin, and they gradually deliver bioidentical hormones directly into your bloodstream throughout the day for a prescribed number of months, at which time you can get a replacement.

Top 5 reasons to consider BioTE

BioTE has many advantages. Here are the top four reasons patients choose BioTE. 

1. BioTE delivers a consistent dose of hormones

Traditional hormone replacement therapy provides a fixed dose of hormones, and this can lead to underexposure or overexposure of hormones. Any rapid surges or declines in hormones in your bloodstream can cause you to feel like you’re on a rollercoaster. 

BioTE pellets deliver a consistent supply of hormones into your system throughout the day, eliminating peaks that are common with other kinds of hormone replacement therapy. 

2. You prefer a natural therapy

Traditional hormone replacement therapy uses hormones that the body is able to use but doesn’t recognize as its own. If you prefer a more natural approach, BioTE pellets are an excellent choice. This is because BioTE hormones are identical to the ones your body makes and are known to have fewer side effects. 

3. You’re dealing with bothersome symptoms

If you deal with fatigue, lack of quality sleep, and other issues related to a hormone imbalance, BioTE hormone replacement therapy may give you relief. In many patients, this therapy can:  

  • Boost energy
  • Restore quality sleep
  • Reduce hair thinning and loss
  • Improve strength
  • Alleviate night sweats
  • Restore libido
  • Boost stamina
  • Enhance weight loss
  • Improve mental clarity

If you’re dealing with symptoms of a hormone deficiency, BioTE is an effective way to get relief and restore your well-being. 

4. You want a convenient approach

Often with traditional hormone replacement therapies, the patient must take a pill or apply a gel daily, which can prove difficult to remember or inconvenient.

BioTE hormone replacement therapy can suit any lifestyle. Men get a new pellet twice a year, while women receive a new pellet 3-4 times a year. Once the pellet is in place, it delivers hormones constantly for months.

5. Other therapies haven’t worked

If you've tried other hormone replacement treatments and they didn't work or had too many adverse effects, it’s worth considering BioTE. 

BioTE hormones are made using plants that are structurally identical to the hormones produced by your body. As a result, your body uses them just like it would its natural hormones. The body cannot tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and those produced naturally by the body, so this form of treatment may finally bring you relief.

Additional benefits of treating a hormone deficiency

Having balanced hormones is crucial to your overall health. Having an imbalance can increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and weak bones. In short, treating a hormone deficiency can help protect your health.
