BioTE Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

Cedar Park Aesthetics

What is BioTE?

BioTE is a therapy that uses bio-identical hormones to help naturally restore balance to hormones in both men and women. The replacement hormones are derived from plants and are biologically identical to what is found in the human body.

Why do I need to replace lost hormones?

While hormone loss, disruption, and imbalance naturally occur with age, it causes many ailments that can affect your daily life. Hormones regulate numerous bodily functions, including your reproductive system, sexual system, mood, bone density, and cholesterol metabolism. They are essential in delivering messages to cells and organs so that they can respond appropriately.

What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

Since hormones affect numerous functions and systems in the body, it can be difficult to pinpoint the cause. Listed below are common symptoms you may experience if you have a hormone imbalance.

Symptoms for both genders include:

  • Weight gain
  • Loss of libido
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble thinking clearly or “brain fog”
  • Irritability

Symptoms specific to a female include:

  • Severe premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes

Symptoms for a male include:

  • Insomnia
  • Inability to maintain muscle mass
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Osteoporosis

Hormone symptoms can be vague and vary for each person. They are also commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked. It’s best to visit Cedar Park Aesthetics to test your blood for a possible hormone imbalance.

What are Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) pellets?

The BioTE therapy comes in the form of small, custom-compounded pellets. These pellets keep hormone levels balanced and consistent throughout your daily life. Bio-identical hormones are derived from natural sources, similar to what is already naturally found in the body. They are also beneficial because they have been shown to have fewer side effects than the synthetic hormones used in other treatments.

How long does BioTE take to work?

Once you have begun the pellet therapy, you may see results in as little as two weeks. However, every body is different and some changes in symptoms could take up to six months. Your doctor at  Cedar Park Aesthetics will work with you to create a customized schedule that works for your symptoms and lifestyle.
