Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.

The primary goal of Biote is to help balance hormones through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using pellets. Hormone balance is crucial to leading a better life, and that’s why the mission of Biote is to help people live better, longer.

What Is the Goal of Hormone Optimization Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may offer relief for many common and debilitating symptoms that medical providers often overlook. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and so much more. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. These ailments may be managed by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions and returning the patient to a state of hormone balance. BHRT may be a simple method for correcting these complex issues through hormone optimization.

What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy is a personalized, natural approach to hormone replacement. It allows a patient’s body to absorb the right level of hormones at the right time using a delivery Method the body can process efficiently.

Pellets are small capsules (about the size of a grain of rice) that contain bioidentical hormones. A bioidentical hormone is the exact molecular structure of hormones the body produces naturally.

They are inserted under the skin, where the hormones enter the bloodstream as they dissolve over several months. Our studies show that patients may see the effects of hormone optimization four weeks after a pellet insertion.

Hormones delivered by pellet therapy bypass the liver, do not affect clotting factors, do not increase the risk of thrombosis, and avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels some patients may experience. Biote bioidentical hormone pellets are made from soy or the yam plant to create estradiol and/or testosterone molecules. Unlike synthetic hormones, which are made from animal parts or urine and have a different molecular structure than what the body produces.

How Can a Patient Get Started With BHRT?

First, call our office to test current hormone levels. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, our health care provider will determine candidacy through the Biote Method. Patients will schedule a quick follow-up appointment to review their results and, when appropriate, for pellet therapy insertion.

What Can a Patient Expect From BHRT?

As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Some patients report some relief in as little as four weeks, but full hormone optimization may take up to six months. The Biote Method of hormone optimization therapy will be customized to balance each patient’s hormones and fit their specific needs.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) First Steps

The first step to BHRT is contacting our office. Our Provider will determine if patients are eligible for BHRT after an in-office appointment and extensive lab work. If the patient is a candidate for BHRT using pellets, they are ready for a pellet insertion.

The Pellet Insertion Method

During an in-office visit, a patient is brought into the exam room, and the insertion site, usually somewhere around the upper buttocks, is numbed. A small incision is made, and the hormone pellet is inserted. After, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage. The pellet dissolves, and the body absorbs the contents, leaving nothing behind. All patient’s symptoms are unique, so each journey is customized to fit your needs. Some patients report seeing improvement in as little as four weeks, but full optimization can take up to six months.

Post-Insertion Care

After the pellet-insertion process is complete, it’s best to eliminate lower body exercise for a short period of time. Walking is fine, but more strenuous exercise is not recommended. Showers are permitted, but bathtubs, hot tubs, and swimming should be avoided. After the bandage is removed, you can resume normal exercise and swimming routines. We deserve to feel better no matter what our age. If you are tired of dealing with the symptoms of hormone imbalance and want to take action, you should our office today.
