What is BioTE?

BioTE is bio-identical hormone replacement pellet therapy which helps to balance hormones in both women and men. BioTE® Identical hormones are non-synthetic, plant-based hormones that are identical biologically to human hormone. BioTE® balances your hormone levels and releases all natural bio-identical estrogen and/or testosterone as needed. BioTE® is safe and effective with no harmful side effects. They are passionate about teaching how hormone balance can be a catalyst for good health. They have neither sought out or obtained FDA approval. They are dedicated to debunking the myths and misconceptions about hormone replacement therapy.

If you have any of the following symptoms you may be a candidate for BioTE® hormone therapy:

• Depression
• Irritability, mood swings
• Extreme fatigue
• Difficulty sleeping
• Low sex drive
• Memory loss, mental fog, confusion
• Joint aches and pain
• Night sweats, hot flashes

How are BioTe pellets inserted?
The tiny BioTe hormone therapy pellet, which is just a bit larger than a grain of rice, is inserted under the skin with a tiny incision for a quick and easy insertion. A piece of tape is used to close the incision, which will heal in a few short days. No stitches will be needed.

What are pellets?

Pellets are were ordinally developed in 1939 for women who underwent radical hysterectomies. They are longest studied form of hormone replacement therapy. They are the most natural form of HRT. They are inserted by a physician into the subcutaneous tissue in the buttocks.

What are pellets made of?

They are made of the steroid ring of the soy or yam plant to create estradiol and/or testosterone molecules. There is NO cross allergy between pellets and soy allergic patients because it is a completely different molecule. Steric acid is also used as a binding agent. The likelihood of someone being allergic to steric acid is extremely rare and in fact, if you have ever taken aspirin, you have ingested steric acid.

Bio-Identical Hormones vs. Synthetic Hormones?

Bio-identical hormones can be introduced into the body and go directly to the receptor and be recognized unlike synthetic hormones that must be changed prior to the body being able to absorb them. Which also makes the bio-identical hormones more effective and less likely to cause any complications.

What are the Benefits of Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Hormone imbalance is a nearly inevitable reality that affects both women and men as they age. People with hormones that are out of balance often feel more fatigued and unhappy than their healthy peers.

Bio-identical hormones offer these patients an effective and natural way to replace diminished hormones without adverse side effects. Bio-identical hormones distinguish themselves from traditional hormone therapy because they are scientifically engineered to act as your own hormones. They are chemically identical to the hormones already present in your body, so they are not as likely to be rejected. And unlike typical bio-identical hormone therapy treatments, pellet therapy ensures that you never miss a hormone dose.

With hormone pellet therapy, patients can enjoy the benefits of:
- Increase in libido
- Increase in metabolism
- Better, more restful sleep
- Reduced vaginal dryness
- Less frequent headaches and migraines

What are the different forms of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy? Why pellets?

PELLETS

- Most consistent blood levels over time
- Some pain with insertion
- Possibility of extrusion (the pellets coming out of the skin)
- Activity restrictions after procedure

INJECTABLE

- Weekly/bi-weekly administration
- Functionating levels (hormonal roller coaster)
- Pain with injection
- Allergies to oil suspension
- May increase platelet stickiness
- Higher level of erythrocytosis and aromatization

ORAL

TRANSDERMAL

Pellets mimic the way the body naturally produced hormones prior to hormone deficiency. As blood flows by the pellet, the blood absorbs the hormones and they are released, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is the most consistent form of HRT meaning it will not give you the hormonal roller coaster effect.

How often do patients need pellets?

Women need them every 3-6 months and men need them every 4-6 months. The more patients move (exercise, walk, etc.) the better they will absorb the pellets, however the faster they will absorb them as well.

Who is a candidate for BioTE?

Anyone with a hormonal imbalance. Your body’s natural hormones begin to decline after your mid-20s and hormone imbalance symptoms frequently present by your mid-30s. Men and women often start replacing hormones between the ages of 35 and 40.

Age is really just a number, you should not wait until you are 50 years old or older to have lab work and a consultation if you are having symptoms.
