Biote Q & A

What is BioTE hormone replacement therapy?

The BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) method is a way of regulating your hormones during menopause or other health conditions that cause your hormones to be out of balance. BioTE hormones come in the form of tiny pellets the size of a grain of rice. The pellets contain plant-based hormones, rather than synthetically manufactured hormones.

Bioidentical hormones are identical to the ones your body naturally produces, and help to keep your systems in balance. As you age, or as a result of a medical condition, you produce less of the hormones you need, including estrogen and testosterone. BioTE pellets contain the specific bioidentical ingredients you need to regulate your hormone levels throughout the day, so you don’t feel like you’re on a rollercoaster.

BioTE hormones are natural and made in the United States under FDA regulations, so they’re a safe way to relieve unpleasant side effects that come with aging and menopause.

What can I expect with BioTE pellets?

First, Dr. King performs comprehensive lab testing to determine your hormone levels and deficiencies so she can order custom-compounded BioTE pellets for your specific condition. If you are a good candidate for BioTE BHRT, Dr. King inserts the pellets painlessly and quickly just below the surface of your skin, typically at your hip or buttock. The pellets deliver a controlled level of hormones throughout the day, and results last up to four months.

BioTE pellets are available for men, too, and relieve the symptoms of hormonal imbalances that many men experience as they age.

What are the benefits of BioTE bioidentical hormones?

BioTE pellets offer numerous health benefits for women (and men) suffering from hormonal imbalances as a result of menopause or chronic health conditions. With BioTE BHRT, you can get relief from:

  • Night sweats
  • Mental fog
  • Hot flashes
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Metabolic issues
  • Weight gain
  • Depression and anxiety

Because BioTE pellets are natural forms of hormones that are similar to the ones your body naturally produces, there are minimal risks of negative side effects.
