What Is BioTE Pellet Therapy?

How is BHRT different from HRT?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that are structurally identical to those produced by the human body. Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) often utilizes synthetic hormones that are similar but not identical to the body's natural hormones. BHRT is considered a more natural and safer approach. Additionally, BHRT may be absorbed more efficiently by the body for more complete, reliable, and steady symptom relief.

What is the right age to start BioTE BHRT?

The right age to start taking BioTE depends on the specific hormonal needs and symptoms of the patient, as well as their overall health, underlying conditions, and other individual factors. BHRT can benefit patients experiencing symptoms related to hormonal imbalances, which can occur at various ages, including menopause for women and andropause for men.
