What is BioTE Medical?

BioTE Medical, a leader in precision and preventive medicine has translated over 80 years of scientific insight into clinically validated medical protocols that identify and treat the earliest indicators of aging. We work with each of our patients on an ongoing basis to analyze symptoms and lab results using a specially designed dosing algorithm to develop a unique treatment plan.

 

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses custom-compounded pellets (approximately the size of a grain of rice) that contain doses of testosterone and estrogen. These hormones are bioidentical to those already present in the body and work to restore hormones to optimal levels. The pellets are placed subcutaneously in the lower hip and release a continuous stream of hormones as the body needs them. Once inserted, the pellets dissolve slowly, so that they only need to be re-administered every 4-6 months depending on the patient.

 

The Importance of Hormone Balance

For men and women, the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone perform several important processes. Both men and women begin to produce less of these hormones as they age, which can start as early as someone's mid-20s or early 30s. Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause, while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known as andropause. Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.
