What Is BioTE Medical's Method of Pellet Therapy?
Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. The BioTE method may help keep 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.
Most frequent questions and answers
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.
The BioTE method of specialized hormone pellet therapy uses custom-compounded pellets that are 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.
Because it’s easy! Hormone replacement patients receive as few as three bioidentical hormone pellet insertions per year. This way they don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when their bodies need it. It’s a simple, one-and-done process, and there’s no need to worry about remembering to take a pill or shot every day.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can come in oral, topical, and pellet forms. BHRT using pellets, offers a consistent administration and may help prevent rollercoaster-like effects.
Each hormone replacement therapy patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most hormone therapy patients report some symptom resolution in as little as four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. The bioidentical hormone replacement therapy journey will be customized to fit your patient’s specific needs.
First, a patient can find a certified BioTE provider near them. If their health-care provider is not listed, they can nominate a provider to become certified. Next, they schedule an office visit to test current hormone levels. Based on comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, providers will determine candidacy through the BioTE method. Patients will schedule a quick follow-up appointment to review their results and for pellet therapy insertion.
