Hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems in our body, yet hormone production changes as we age, creating hormone imbalances. In order to alleviate the symptoms associated with hormone imbalance, BioTE hormone therapy provides patients with a procedure to optimize their hormones using patient-specific, bioidentical, cardio activated pellets. This research endeavor was undertaken with the purpose of determining whether or not BioTE is an effective form of hormone therapy, as indicated by an improvement in patients’ symptoms. Data was collected from health assessments of thirty patients that quantified the severity of their symptoms both prior to and after the procedure. A matched pair t-test and confidence interval was then used to determine if there was a significant difference within the data. Upon its conclusion, the study determined that there was a decline in severity of patient symptoms by approximately 8.5 to 20.3 points, indicating that BioTE is an effective method of therapy.
