BioTE hormone pellet therapy is a treatment for people who are experiencing life-disrupting symptoms due to an imbalance in their hormones. Hormones that commonly fall out of balance include:
BioTE pellets contain bioidentical hormones, which are structurally identical to the hormones your body makes naturally. They’re made from plant ingredients rather than chemicals.
BioTE hormones come in pellet form. They’re implanted under the surface of your skin so they can deliver a steady stream of hormones to your system. The exact makeup of the hormones is customized to meet your needs.
As you age, your hormones naturally fluctuate. Women moving toward menopause commonly experience hot flashes and vaginal dryness due to a decrease in estrogen production.
Men also experience a reduction in sex hormones as they age. Reduced testosterone means a loss of muscle mass and erectile dysfunction.
Both men and women may also experience:
Many of these symptoms can indicate an imbalance in your thyroid hormones, as well.
To rebalance your hormones in a safe, effective manner, Lenox Medical Clinic recommends getting tested for hormone imbalances and to be treated with BioTE if appropriate.
Prior to recommending BioTE bioidentical supplement hormone pellets, the doctor reviews your personal and family medical history. If you have existing health conditions or can’t tolerate hormone therapy, BioTE may not be right for you.
If BioTE is appropriate, your provider places a small incision in your skin in an inconspicuous place, like your upper buttock, and inserts the pellets just beneath the skin.
The pellets are usually effective for 3-6 months. You’ll learn when you should consider replacing the pellets based on your dosage and the effectiveness of your treatment.
