It can be used in a range of situations, when a patient is experiencing lower than standard hormone levels and can contribute to a variety of goals from weight management, to increasing libido and helping with diabetes management.

What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Biote Certified Provider Seal [English] Hormone replacement therapy is broad ranging, and can benefit a variety of patients. 

We typically see this as a method to treat menopausal symptoms in older female patients, and even prevent bone loss and reduce fractures in postmenopausal women.

But that is not all it’s good for – the benefits span far and wide, and vary depending on the hormone you’re prescribed. We’ll cover some of the most common benefits a little further down the page.

Frequently Asked Questions about Hormone Replacement Therapy

1. What are the side effects of hormone replacement therapy?
The symptoms you could experience during hormone replacement therapy will differ from patient to patient, depending on the dose, the actual hormone you receive, and your medical history. Your doctor will discuss these with you ahead of treatment, schedule a consultation today to discuss a custom wellness plan with our team.
