Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Biote’s Method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, may help avoid unwanted side effects connected with a hormone imbalance. As we age, the production of hormones can be affected. Too much or too little of a hormone can have effects on the body, ranging from moderate to severe. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may help relieve the symptoms of hormonal imbalance by raising hormones to their optimal levels.
Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. The Biote Method may help keep a patient’s hormone levels consistent throughout the day. The pellet therapy that Biote trains on uses hormones that are bioidentical to those found in the human body.
Who is a good candidate? Who is NOT a candidate?
If you're facing significant menopausal symptoms that are disrupting your daily activities, you might be a good candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Your doctor will assess your suitability for BHRT through a comprehensive examination, review of your medical history, and discussions about your expectations and goals.
How is the treatment done?
The Biote Method of specialized hormone pellet therapy uses custom-compounded pellets specifically designed to replace the hormones men and women lose over time. During pellet therapy, pellets are inserted subcutaneously into the body in a quick, simple, in-office procedure. These pellets will gradually be absorbed, dispersing hormones throughout the body.
How long does it take to notice results?
Each hormone replacement therapy patient’s symptoms are unique; so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most hormone therapy patients report some relief in as little as four weeks or sooner, but full optimization may take up to six months or more. The bioidentical hormone replacement therapy journey is customized to fit your patient’s specific needs.
Why do the procedure/benefits?
Studies prove that pellets are one of the most effective hormonal delivery methods for both men and women. Unlike creams, patches, pills or shots, BioTE is the only hormone delivery method that guarantees sustained levels 24 hours a day, helping you avoid the dreaded hormonal, emotional roller-coaster effect. Pellets provide the bioidentical hormones your body recognizes, significantly reducing the risk of any side effects
How often do you have to follow up?
We recommend pellet insertions every 3-4 months. We always schedule follow ups approximately 4-6 weeks after the initial insertion to run labs to make sure the treatment is working for each patient and discuss next steps before continual treatment.
