Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can come in oral, topical and pellet forms. BHRT has many advantages over other hormone therapies – most notably, the consistent administration of the hormone prevents the rollercoaster-like effects patients often experience with creams and pills.
What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. This therapy keeps hormone levels consistent through the day and avoids rollercoaster-like effects from orally administered or topically administered hormones.
Why Bio-identical Pellet Therapy?
Because it’s easy! As a patient, you receive two to four pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when your body needs it.
What kind of estrogen is in the bio-identical pellets?
BioTE Medical uses bio-identical estradiol in the pellets, meaning that the chemical structure is the same as the hormones naturally produced in your body.
Hormone Imbalances in Women
Many women will experience a hormone imbalance and not even realize it. Symptoms can range from subtle to debilitating and are often masked by medications that are prescribed for anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, and more. Having your hormones checked regularly will reveal whether your hormones are optimized.
What Causes a Hormone Imbalance in Women?
Hormone imbalance in women can occur as part of the natural aging process and may reflect genetic predispositions for certain conditions. However, hormone balance is affected by the food we eat, exercising and the amount of stress we experience.
What Conditions Can Hormone Imbalance Cause?
When you have an imbalance in the endocrine systems, you have endocrine disease which is a hormone imbalance. This means that there is either too much or too little women hormone being produced somewhere within the endocrine system. Issues regarding this:
- Menstrual cycles, breast abnormalities can stem
- Metabolism problems come from issues with the thyroid gland
