As hard as he tried, Brigham Buhler couldn’t achieve the weight-loss and fitness goals he’d set in his mid-20s. Plus, he constantly felt tired and stressed out. On top of that, Brigham’s entire immediate family has diabetes, and he was exhibiting the warning signs.
Buhler’s nutritionist recommended he get his hormones checked. It wound up taking three months to get an initial appointment with a urologist, who then recommended a comprehensive blood test.
The blood work revealed that he did, indeed, have a hormone deficiency. Subsequent hormone treatment, in addition to taking vitamins and supplements to combat various risk factors, got Buhler’s endocrine system back on track.
Born out of that frustrating situation and spurred by his more than 15 years in the medical-device industry, Buhler launched Houston-based Ways2Well in 2018. Propelled by a virtual health care platform, the company envisions a better way to treat patients by challenging the traditional health care model.
