FAQ’s about BioTE®
What is BioTE®?
BioTE® is a Bio-Identical form of hormone therapy that seeks to return the hormone balance to youthful levels in women and men.
How do I know if I’m a candidate for pellets?
Symptoms may vary widely from depression and anxiety to night sweats and sleeplessness for example. You will be given a lab slip to have blood work done which will determine your hormone levels. Once our physician reviews and determines whether or not you are a candidate, we will schedule an appointment for insertion.
Do I have blood work done before each treatment?
No, only initially and 4 to 8 weeks later set to your dosing. You may have it done again if there are significant changes to your weight, lifestyle, etc.
What are the pellets made from?
They are made from wild yams and/or soy.
How long will the treatment last?
For 3-5 months, depending on the person. Everyone is different so it depends on how you feel and what our physician determines is right for you. If you are really active, you are under a lot of stress or it is extremely hot, your treatment may not last as long. Absorption rate is determined on cardiac output.
Is the therapy FDA approved?
The ingredients in the pellets are all FDA approved. The distribution of the pellets is FDA regulated. The procedure is not FDA approved. The pellets are derived from yams and are all natural and bio-identical, meaning they are the exact replication of what the body makes.
How are they administered?
Our practitioner will implant the pellets in the dermas of the hip. A small incision is made in the hip and the pellets are inserted. No stitch is required.
Does it matter if I’m on birth control?
No, our physician can determine what your hormone needs are even if you are on birth control.
Are there any side effects?
The only side effects may be some hair growth or acne in moderation. Both are very treatable. There are no serious side effects.
What if I’m already on HRT of some sort like creams, patches, pills?
This is an easy transition. Our physician will be able to determine your needs even though you may be currently taking these other forms of HRT.
What if I’ve had Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer survivors and/or those who have a history of breast cancer in their family may still be a candidate; however, this is to be determined by our physician.
