BioTE® For Men

Why is Natural Testosterone Better?

Several studies show only NATURAL testosterone to be protective and preventative of many disease states. Men with low testosterone are 3 times as likely to get Alzheimer’s dementia. In a recent study men over 55 with higher levels of testosterone showed a significant reduction in coronary artery disease and heart attacks; testosterone builds bone by 8.3% per year, preventing osteopenia and osteoporosis. Low tesosterone increases cortisol levels and insulin levels, both of which increase belly fat and increase your risk for diabetes. Natural testosterone can ONLY be absorbed subcutaneously, therefore a pellet placed under the skin is required.

What Should my Testosterone Level Be?

What is “normal” for the average population may not be optimal for you. The optimal testosterne level in males is 900-1100, a “normal” lab reference can range from 200-1100 for men. Men are typically symptomatic under 400 but thats in the”normal range”.

Why are Hormone Pellets Better?

Hormone pellets offer a natural hormone balance method that keeps your levels in the optimal range 24/7. Methods that put your hormones on a roller coaster by taking something every day like shots and creams don’t offer the benefit of balanced hormones 24 hours a day. The release of the hormones is regulated by your cardiac output. As your heart pumps faster like when you are workng out, blood flow increases over the pellet and increases the release of hormone required by your increase in activity. While you are sleeping, when your cardiac output is lowered, less hormone is released.

Is the Hormone Pellet Made Specifically For Me?

A battery of lab tests are performed and the hormone pellet is customized to your individual hormone levels. A complete thyroid panel is drawn, as well as vitamin D3 levels. If these are abnormal they will also be supplmented because there is a synergy between all of these with testosterone, acheiving optimal levels of all of these will allow you to gain the most benefits and give you the best results.

How Long do the Hormone Pellets Last?

Hormone pellets last longer in men than women, lasting around 9 months depending on your activity level.

How are the Hormone Pellets Placed?

A minor surgical procedure is performed wherethe skin is numbed on the fatty part of your buttock, a small incision is made and a trocar instrument is the used to tunnel under the skin and place the pellets under the skin. The incision is then closed with a sterile paper strip. Most patients experience minimal discomfort.

How does pellet hormone therapy work?

Pellet insertion is a relatively simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia it takes an average of 4-10 minutes in total. The pellets are inserted subcutaneously ( under the fatty lining of skin) in the upper buttocks through a very small incision. The incision is then closed with sterile tape strips. Patients should not be able to feel the implants under the skin. Hormone implants placed under the skin release small, physiologic doses of hormones, keeping a patient’s levels in therapeutic range until the next pellet procedure.

Benefits of Bio-Identical Pellet Hormone Therapy for Women:

In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and many others. Pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency, and frequency. Bio-identical hormone pellets have been shown to decrease body fat, and a greater capacity for losing weight. Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY PREVENTATIVE against breast cancer, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s dementia to name a few.

Is the Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Formulated Just for me?

A comprehensive panel of testing is performed. We use these results to then customize your hormone levels to optimal levels to experience all the protective benefits while gaining the great feeling of optimal wellness! Each customized hormone pellet lasts between 4-6 months in women depending on your activity level. A complete thyroid panel and vitamin D3 level is performed. These act in synergy with the hormone pellet and may also be supplemented depending on your levels. It is important to optimize all of these levels to achieve the maximum benefits. Since the release of hormone is regulated by your cardiac output, patients that are very active may require more frequent insertions than a patent with a more sedentary lifestyle. Most patients are able to tell when their hormone levels start to decline! Testing may be performed at various intervals to mantain optimal hormone levels
