How to Get Started With Bioidentical Hormone Balance Therapy
A patient can schedule an office visit to test current hormone levels. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, providers will determine candidacy through the BioTE method. Patients will schedule a quick follow-up appointment to review their results and for pellet therapy insertion.
What is the Goal of Balancing Hormones in Men?
The goal of hormone optimization therapy is to provide patients with an enhanced sense of well-being. This could mean a return to the balance they once knew, or it could also mean providing a balance never felt by the patient before. In addition to feeling great, balancing male hormones may be able to help reduce the risk of certain concerns connected to hormone health.
What is the BioTE Method of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may begin to balance male hormones within two to four weeks. The BioTE method of BHRT is customized to each patient’s unique physiology based on a consultation and extensive lab work. Because of this, every treatment is tailored to the patient.
What Can a Patient Expect From BHRT?
While everyone’s results are different, the process for considering, getting, monitoring, and continuing with BHRT is typically the same with most patients. The first appointment with a certified BioTE provider will involve extensive hormone testing. The next appointment will be to review the patient’s test results, then, if the provider finds that the patient’s hormone levels are unbalanced, the hormone pellet insertion can be performed during that visit. The next round of BHRT pellets will be inserted in three to six months, depending on a variety of factors that determine absorption rates and needs as every patient's path to balancing hormones in men is unique to them.
