Bio-Identical Hormones

     Hormone levels decline up to 10% yearly as we age. Studies have also shown that optimized hormones are necessary for good health. Symptoms of low hormones include low energy, weight gain, mood changes, decreased memory/mental clarity and libido. This leads many patients to seek help from their medical professional for hormone replacement therapy. While this can be effective, pharmaceutical products are synthetic and can produce uncomfortable ups and downs as well as side effects.

     Thanks to a new technology called Biote®, patients can get the same benefits of medical HRT, but naturally and without the side effects. Another advantage is Biote® does more than just replace the hormones; it’s a whole system of completely optimizing hormones customized to the individual patient’s needs. It's can be a great option for medical HRT patients who want a more natural approach. Because it's tailored specifically to the patient, it starts with a comprehensive blood panel to measure hormone and nutrient levels. Using natural bio-identical hormone pellets containing testosterone and/or estrogen, a patient’s hormone levels can be restored back to normal range.

     Pellets are delivered as a minimally invasive implant in the patient’s hip/upper gluteal region and provide a constant supply of hormone. This system is much healthier for the body because it’s customized, so hormone levels are kept in optimum levels. The implant delivery system is also a much more natural method as the body can use the amount it needs when it needs it. This eliminates the uncomfortable ups and downs common to pharmaceutical hormone replacement. The procedure is painless and takes about 20 minutes.
