Proven Denver Hormone Therapy

Biodentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Denver

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is proven Denver hormone therapy. Originally developed in 1939 for women who had undergone radical hysterectomies. This procedure had recently become a widespread treatment in Europe and Australia. That makes compounded bio-identical hormone pellet therapy the longest studied form of hormone replacement therapy in existence. Even so, more studies are needed to build even greater confidence in the benefits of this effective therapy.

Biote providers strive to be a voice for hormone optimization quality and access to the best research. The human hormonal system is very complicated and each patient needs personalized treatment. BHRT provides greater flexibility and accessibility than other types of therapy can offer. Hundreds of thousands of Biote patients have received over 2.5 million pellet insertions in the last ten years.

Breast Cancer Study
To demonstrate that testosterone is protective against breast cancer, particularly when delivered by subcutaneous pellet therapy.*

Complication Study
This study identified adverse events for men and women that received subcutaneous pellet therapy. The overall complication rate was < 1%.

Recent Hormone Research
This study showed that declining estrogen levels before, during, and after menopause can negatively affect memory and increase the risk for Alzheimer’s disease. Although more research is necessary, this study showed a possible delay in the onset of dementia with pellet therapy.*

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) and Breast Cancer

Bio-available testosterone is significantly lower in women with breast cancer, supporting the protective role that hormone optimization with testosterone affords to patients (Dimitrakakis et al., 2010).

Testosterone shown to counteract the proliferative (cancer causing) effects of estrogen and progesterone in mammary tissue (Ando, 2002).

Breast tissue sampled from pre-and post-menopausal women shows the inhibitory effects of testosterone on breast cell proliferation (Hofling et al., 2007 & Dimitrikakis et al., 2003).

Testosterone hormone pellet therapy shown to reduce the incidence of breast cancer from 243 per 100,000 women years (placebo arm of the Women’s Health Initiative) to 73 per 100,000 women years (Glazer, 2013).

BHRT Safety and Benefits

  • Bioidentical hormones that are approved by the FDA may be preferred over standard hormone replacement because of their physiologic benefits and safety profile. (E. Conway, DO, 2011)
