What Is BHRT?
BHRT stands for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). What does that mean? Bioidentical refers to how molecularly similar the supplemental hormone is to the human hormone. People who lack certain hormones or who have too much of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT.
What Are BHRT Pellets?
BHRT pellets are inserted subcutaneously in the upper buttocks. They are made of custom-compounded hormones and binders that hold them together. Every batch of hormones is tested for potency, sterility, and endotoxins, which ensures that BioTE providers’ patients are being provided the best possible therapy to expedite their journey towards optimal wellness.
What Is the BHRT Pellet Insertion Process Like?
The BHRT pellet insertion process is straightforward, fast, and simple. First, a patient finds a certified BioTE provider. If their provider is not listed, they may nominate them to become BioTE certified. They will then schedule an office visit to have their hormone levels tested. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, the provider will determine if the patient is a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for women. Custom pellet therapy insertion will take place either during this appointment or during a quick follow up appointment.
