Terry Weber is the CEO of BioTE and is on a mission to educate medical professionals about the need to address the hormone levels in patients as they age. With a personalized approach, BioTE focuses on providing hormone therapy to help patients maintain their quality of life and not just be dismissed as getting old when they report discomfort, sexual dysfunction, and loss of muscle mass.  

Terry explains, "At BioTE we don't just do hormone treatment. We try to optimize the individual's hormones, and that would be estrogen and testosterone, both for men and women. Testosterone's very important for women. Also, looking at the thyroid and adrenals. What we look to see is how do we balance those hormones in the individuals so that they really feel their absolute best. We take blood tests, and we have very in-depth questionnaires because everyone's reaction to hormone levels is very personal."

"BioTE's history has been to focus on putting a light on testosterone for women because it's such a critical hormone. Most people assume that testosterone is just for men, and that's not true at all. What BioTE has brought to the market is a real focus on women's needs and the need for testosterone in women's bodies and how important that is in the long run for their general health. We've been disruptive in that way."
