Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
What Are BHRT Pellets?
BHRT stands for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). As we age our body naturally depletes of the various hormones that are needed to keep us active, lively, and energetic. Hormone therapy is designed to replicate your own body’s levels to help and improve your overall health.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) comes in oral, topical and pellet forms. At Apex Center for Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Savarino prefers using BioTe pellets as it has many advantages over other hormone modalities – most notably, the ongoing and consistent administration of the treatment for the patient brings many benefits. This prevents the rollercoaster-up and downs which some patients experience with other forms of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
BioTE method uses bioidentical hormone pellets that contain bioidentical testosterone or estrogen. The pellets are placed subcutaneously in the body and release a continuous stream of bioidentical hormones. Hormone replacement pellets dissolve and are absorbed into your body. With more than a million pellet insertions in our company’s history, your Certified BioTE Medical Provider will work with you to customize your dose based on your bloodwork.
