Balanced hormones are essential for good health and disease prevention as we age. BioTE® (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy) optimizes hormone levels with tiny pellets just under the skin. Hormone pellets release all-natural, bio-identical estrogen and/or testosterone, which is metabolized consistently into the body as needed.
What is hormone pellet therapy?
Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy— which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient—BioTE® medical hormone pellet therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
What are hormone pellets?
Pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen or testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen or testosterone used in the pellets.
These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
Precise dosing is key.
Proper hormone levels are determined by the BioTE® comprehensive bloodwork analysis. Unique dosing is generated for each individual patient, so dosing is customized for what your body needs. Pellets deliver pure, bio-identical hormones directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for up to 5 months. Pills, patches, creams and shots cannot provide a steady delivery of hormones 24/7. Pellets provide a constant supply of hormones that your body recognizes as its own, which significantly reduces the chance of adverse side effects.
If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, chances are he or she is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy.
