Hormones are a vital part of your body’s balance: acting as messengers, they interact with specific target cells and organs to provoke changes. We all know about the role hormones play in puberty, but they’re an important part of your body’s regulation throughout life. Hormones play a role in coordinating bodily functions from immune function and mood to digestion and libido.

As people age, hormone production also changes, and that sometimes brings about hormonal imbalances. When they occur, hormone imbalances can have a significant impact on health and wellbeing. In women, out of balance hormones can bring a range of symptoms, including insomnia, anxiety, and weight gain. For men, hormone imbalances can result in fatigue, depression, lower muscle mass, or erectile dysfunction.

When hormone imbalances occur, many people consider hormone replacement therapy. While there are several types – from pulls to creams and multiple hormones to just one – they vary in efficacy and risk.

One hormone therapy, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy (BHRT), promises a more natural and consistent form of hormone therapy.

What’s Different About BioTe

BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy is plant based and uses no synthetic hormones. BHRT can come in oral, topical and pellet forms. BHRT has many advantages over other hormone therapies – most notably, the consistent administration of the hormone prevents the rollercoaster-like effects patients often experience with creams and pills.

Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. This therapy keeps hormone levels consistent through the day and avoids rollercoaster-like effects from orally administered or topically administered hormones.

BioTE Medical uses bio-identical estradiol in the pellets, meaning that the chemical structure is the same as the hormones naturally produced in your body.

How it Works

BioTE Medical uses bio-identical estradiol in the pellets, meaning that the chemical structure is the same as the hormones naturally produced in your body.

Patients receive two to four pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to worry about applying a cream or taking a pill, and the hormone is available when your body needs it.
