What Male Hormone Imbalance Therapies Exist?
There are three common paths when choosing any course of medical treatment for a hormonal imbalance in men. The first is doing nothing to solve your patient’s problems and hoping that they will feel better. The second is going the conventional medicine route prescribing medication after medication after medication to try and treat their symptoms. The third is to consider the perspective of preventative medicine by optimizing hormones with the BioTE® method.
What is the BioTE® method and what makes it different?
The BioTE® method involves using bio-identical hormone pellets. Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are the exact molecule that your body is supposed to produce. Delivered as a pellet inserted under the skin, the hormone will slowly be released into your bloodstream over 4-5 months replicating the natural system your body needs. These factors minimize side effects while maximizing the benefits of hormone optimization.
