Why BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy

Studies have shown that balanced hormones are necessary for good health and disease prevention for men and women as we age. BioTE® optimizes hormone levels with tiny pellets placed under the skin that release bio-identical hormones into the bloodstream based on cardiac output. These safe, bioidentical, naturally-occurring hormones help your body to: regain energy, muscle strength and increase mental clarity, feel younger and happier again and increase your quality of life while preventing age-related illnesses.


How do you know if you're a candidate for hormone replacement therapy? Symptoms may vary widely from depression and anxiety to night sweats, sleeplessness, fatigue and even low libido. Your blood tests will determine your hormone levels. Your provider will combine your labs with symptoms and once it’s determined that you're a candidate, we will schedule an appointment for insertion of the hormones.

Why Hormone Replacement?

After the age of 30, most individuals’ produce 3%-10% less hormones each year. Many individuals needlessly suffer because they don’t know they have low hormone levels and that safe options like BioTe exist.

Benefits of BioTe Hormone Replacement

BioTE® is a bio-identical (not synthetic) hormone replacement that seeks to return hormone balance to youthful levels. In addition to improving energy and muscle strength, providing greater ability to lose weight and increased mental clarity, BioTE® can make patients feel younger and happier again, with an increased quality of life. Optimized hormones can also reduce the risk of many age-related health issues such as osteoporosis, Alzheimer's, and diabetes.

How Does It Work?

Small BioTE® hormone pellets are placed under the skin and release bio-identical estrogen and/or testosterone consistently into the bloodstream. No stitches are required and patients may return to work immediately following the procedure. Proper dosing is determined by your bloodwork and unique and customized dosing is recommended for each patient to provide the best possible outcome. A four-six week follow-up blood test is required so we may evaluate your levels to determine if any adjustments need to be made. Patients already on a hormone replacement treatment such as shots, creams, patches or pills may easily transition to BioTE® hormone replacement therapy.
