How often will I need treatment?

For women, usually every 3-4 months, for men usually every 5-6 months.

Why are pellets better than patches, shots or pills?

Weekly shots or daily pills are inconvenient, often synthetically made, and can deliver a vast fluctuation in relief of symptoms. Creams simple don’t work as well and can be dangerous to kids who are inadvertently exposed through hugs and other contact of the applied area.

BioTe Pellet Therapy is the best and natural way to manage hormone imbalance.

Where are the pellets placed?

Because the pellets are pure hormone – without fillers or synthetic ingredients – they completely dissolve. The pellets are inserted on your upper buttock under the skin.

Are there side-effects?

All side effects are temporary and treatable and occur less than 2% of the time, when pelleted correctly.

What makes this program unique?

Many things! BioTE Medical CEO and Founder, Dr. Gary Donovitz has created a unique dosing instrument, so we can scientifically dose and create a plan specifically for you. Combining your medical history and lab values, we can determine your optimal dosage of hormones, thyroid, Vitamin D and more! You natural body activity determines when and how more hormones will be delivered  – creams, patches, and pills cannot do this.

How do I find out if I have hormone imbalance?

By simply completing our BHRT checklist (found in the new patient packet) you will identify areas of your life that may be impacted by low hormone levels. Using your current lab values along with your medical history, we are able to identify areas for correction and create a personalized plan for you.

How long does it take for the pellets to work?

It is different for everyone. Many people have called the day after pelleting to share that they had just had the best nights sleep that they have had in years! As time goes on you will start to notice different things ~ a little better mood, energy, sleep and more! Although everyone is different, typically you’ll being to feeling the benefits within 4-6 weeks after your first pellet.

Why do I need estrogen?

Estrogen has over 400 functions in the body. Estrogen is the most important hormone for a woman. As we slow down our production, we can notice many estrogen deficiency symptoms: Hot flashes, skin changes, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, decreased libido and urinary issues. The studies are showing many health benefits of estrogen including decreased: risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, heart disease, colon cancer, macular degeneration, diabetes and arthritis.

Why do I need testosterone?

Testosterone is not only a “feel good” hormone, but it also helps with your metabolism, immune function, decreases inflammation, increases muscle mass and bone density. Testosterone optimization can increase your sex drive, performance and satisfaction.
