Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can come in oral, topical and pellet forms. BHRT has many advantages over other hormone therapies – most notably, the consistent administration of the hormone prevents the rollercoaster-like effects patients often experience with creams and pills.BioTE is hormone replacement therapy in the form of subcutaneous pellets. Pellets placed release bio-identical hormones that are tailored to your specific needs. We offer two kinds of pellets: both estradiol pellets and testosterone pellets.
BioTE pellets are inserted into the hip area during an in-office visit after testing has been done to determine the exact quantity of the hormone each patient requires.
Pellets last between 3 and 6 months depending on gender, weight, absorption rates and the amount of deficiency or surplus of hormones present within the patient at the time of administration.
Pellets are reinserted between 2 and 4 times per year to help keep hormones optimized and balanced.
Pellet therapy differs from pills and creams in that it allows for consistent dosing throughout the day. Other administrations of hormones can create a rollercoaster effect for the user as the pills and creams do not release consistent amounts of the hormone throughout the day.
It is said that bio-identical hormones, such as the ones used by BioTE Medical work better with the natural chemistry of the body because they most closely replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that naturally occur within the body.
The pellets are derived from plants, not animals, which closely mimic the hormones naturally present within your body. Studies have shown that bio-identical hormone pellet therapy may offer you the most benefits.
Yes, there are two major pellet therapy types: Estrogen Pellets and Testosterone Pellets.
BioTE is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in the form of subcutaneous pellets. We offer two kinds of pellets: both estradiol pellets and testosterone pellets.
Estrogen pellets are small cylinders composed of estradiol, a form of estrogen. Estrogen pellets treat emotional, reproductive and non-reproductive symptoms. The most common administration for estrogen pellets is to treat the uncomfortable symptoms of aging in women though they can also be used as a preventative treatment of other conditions and to balance hormones of men and women at any age.
Testosterone pellets are small cylinders made of custom compounded testosterone. The testosterone pellets can be used to treat a variety of conditions including emotional symptoms, reproductive symptoms and non-reproductive symptoms. There are also conditions that may be treated preventatively by testosterone pellets.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to work within seven to ten days of your pellet insertion. Once a pellet is inserted into the gluteal area, a consistent dose of bio-identical (naturally derived) hormones enter the bloodstream.
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time to resolve.
Because it's easy! As a patient, you receive two to four pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when your body needs it.
Based on your comprehensive consultation and thorough blood work panel, our doctors will determine if you are a candidate for BioTE pellet therapy.If you are a candidate, we will schedule a quick follow-up appointment for your pellet therapy insertion.All you have to do is contact our offices to schedule your in-office visit with one of our medical providers to learn more.
