BioTe is a form of hormone replacement therapy that utilizes subcutaneous pellets to deliver bioidentical hormones to the body. The pellets are made up of plant-derived hormones that are identical in structure to the hormones produced by the human body. BioTe therapy has been used to treat a variety of hormonal imbalances in men and women, including menopause, andropause, and thyroid disorders.
Why BioTe Therapy
One of the advantages of BioTe therapy is that it provides a steady, consistent release of hormones over a period of several months. This is in contrast to other forms of hormone replacement therapy, such as pills or creams, which can result in fluctuating hormone levels and inconsistent results.
BioTe therapy is typically administered in the form of small pellets that are inserted just beneath the skin, usually in the upper buttock area. The pellets are inserted using a small incision, and the procedure is typically quick and minimally invasive. Once the pellets are in place, they begin to release hormones into the bloodstream, providing a steady supply of hormones to the body.
Benefits of BioTe
BioTe therapy is often used to treat menopause symptoms in women, including hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. It can also help to improve mood and energy levels, as well as reduce the risk of osteoporosis and other age-related conditions. In men, BioTe therapy can help to improve libido, energy levels, and muscle mass, as well as reduce the risk of heart disease and other age-related conditions.
While BioTe therapy is generally considered safe and effective, it is not without risks. Like all forms of hormone replacement therapy, there is a risk of side effects, including headaches, acne, and breast tenderness. In addition, some studies have suggested that long-term use of hormone replacement therapy may increase the risk of breast cancer, although the evidence on this is mixed.
Overall, BioTe therapy can be an effective treatment option for men and women dealing with hormonal imbalances. If you are considering hormone replacement therapy, it is important to talk to your doctor to determine if BioTe is the right choice for you. Your doctor can help you weigh the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy, and help you decide on the best treatment approach for your individual needs.
