Sleep Apnea Solutions: Saturday on The Consumer Team

(Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX)     Every night millions of Americans wake up gasping for breath.  Sleep Apnea. We’ve all heard about the symptoms…snoring, gasping for air, lack of sleep.  We’ve also heard that Sleep Apnea can be a killer.   Saturday, October 25, The Consumer Team will welcome Dr. Kent Smith from Sleep Dallas to talk about new developments for the treatment of Sleep Apnea.   Pete Thomson, host of The Consumer Team, called Dr. Smith’s appearance timely and a result of listener demand.  Thomson said, “Sleep Apnea is very concerning.   Every day, people struggle with the symptoms and it can kill.  Dr. Smith is an expert in the field of sleep and we look forward to having him on The Consumer Team.”

According to Thomson, Sleep Apnea often goes untreated because people don’t understand all the treatment options.   He added, “The CPAP machine is a pretty well known treatment option for Sleep Apnea.   However, it’s no secret that it’s not an easy treatment method.   Many consumers have difficulty  using the machine.  Dr. Smith will be talking about options for treatment that are easier for patients.  Because the new treatments have the potential to save lives, we feel that it’s important to discuss on the air.”

Thomson cited both Dr. Smith’s credentials and innovative approach.  He added, “Dr. Smith is a leading lecturer on sleep disorders.  He’s also been instrumental in bringing new technology to his patients.  In addition to the new methods of treating Sleep Apnea, we’ll discuss new developments in sleep study science that no longer require a mandatory overnight session in a sleep clinic.   We see this new technology and intelligence as positive because it’s removing barriers that previously would serve as a roadblock to people getting treatment for sleep disorders.”

The Consumer Team with Pete Thomson is broadcast Saturdays from 5-7 PM on 1080 KRLD Radio.  To listen live, click here.   The Consumer Team is produced by McQ Media, Dallas, Texas.

Dr. Gary Donovitz, founder and medical director of BioTE Medical, commented on the award.  He said, “We’re honored to receive this recognition.  The Consumer Team has a reputation for being very selective regarding the companies that they endorse and we’re thrilled to receive The CISQUA Award.

Pete Thomson said The CISQUA Award presented to BioTE Medical reflects the contributions that the company has made in the field of natural testosterone replacement.   Thomson added, “Hormone replacement and specifically testosterone replacement therapy are hot topics for consumers right now.  We believe that BioTE Medical’s all natural approach to hormone replacement is the safest and most effective way for both men and women to balance hormones.  Because of the significant issues that accompany the use of synthetic hormones, we believe that consumers need to understand how the natural approach used by BioTE Medical can be beneficial and very different than synthetic therapies.”

Thomson said that the marketplace is generally very confused about hormone replacement therapy, largely because of inaccurate media coverage.  He added, “The media understands half the story, which is that synthetic hormones, the ones you see advertised heavily on television, have a long list of negative side effects.  However, they haven’t grasped the difference between synthetic and natural hormones.”

Dr. Donovitz cited numerous research studies that support the use of natural testosterone replacement.  He added, “There are years of research and studies that support natural hormone replacement therapy.  In fact, we have multiple studies that show that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is protective to the prostate, heart, brain and breast.  The benefits to the patients, both men and women, allow for healthier lives as people age and they require fewer drugs for disease management.”

The growth of BioTE Medical has been steady and impressive.  According to BioTE Medical’s COO, Dan DeNeui, the company has grown to over 500 certified practitioners in 26 states.  DeNeui said, “Our growth has been exciting.  People are experiencing better health.  Plus, our practitioners, many of whom have been frustrated by the limitations of managed care, are excited to be able to offer the great benefits of BioTE to their patients.”

Beyond the advantages of BioTE’s natural approach to hormone therapy, Thomson cited their organization and network of medical practitioners as major assets.  He said, “BioTE Medical’s commitment to on-going training is very impressive.  And, the quality of physicians utilizing the BioTE Method in their practice is outstanding.”
