What Male Hormone Imbalance Therapies Exist?
Patients can choose three common paths for a 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 and prescribing medication after medication to treat their symptoms. The third is to consider the perspective of preventative medicine by optimizing hormones with the Biote Method.
What Therapy Does Biote Use to Optimize Male Hormones?
Patients have reported that one path to the relief of their hormone imbalance symptoms is through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT.
