What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The BioTE treatment used hormone pellet therapy to duplicate your body’s normal hormone levels while simultaneously improving your overall well-being. Hormone pellets allow bioidentical estrogen and bioidentical testosterone to be released into your bloodstream and your body can absorb them as they are needed.
The reason so many patients are opting for this hormone therapy procedure over others is that bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the ones your body produces naturally.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Women who are going through menopause are an ideal candidate for hormone replacement therapy. The most common reason women are prescribed hormone replacement therapy is to deal with a drop in estrogen and other hormones during and after menopause. This is because the menopause changes hormone levels and production in the body. Hormone replacement therapy helps women get through this change and it also reduces the risk of developing health problems such as bone loss and osteoporosis.
Men who are looking to increase their testosterone (which drops naturally with age) are one of the several reasons for men to get hormone replacement therapy. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is generally only prescribed in cases where there's been an absence of endogenous production by a mans own testes. Many men have more energy and have higher sex drives after receiving TRT.
What are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?
One of the largest benefits is the increase in sexual drive and increase in overall energy associated with Hormone Replacement Therapy. Women will see a reduction in menopausal symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, lack of sleep and weight gain.
