BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy
(This procedure is performed next door at Dr Walden’s surgery center.)
BioTE Medical is paving the way in the field of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. For men and women battling the symptoms of hormone imbalance, BioTE hormone pellets are a highly effective treatment for boosting physical and mental health.
What happens to our hormones as we get older?
As we age, it’s perfectly normal for our bodies to produce lower levels of hormones. This can lead to an imbalance of hormones and cause a variety of physical and mental symptoms.
For women, the biggest change in hormone levels occurs during the menopause. This tends to begin during the mid-40s or beyond, and it can lead to range of unpleasant symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Loss of libido
- Vaginal dryness and discomfort
- Sleeping problems
However, andropause is also a significant hormonal change in the body, and this affects both men and women. Andropause can occur from as early as the mid-30s, and since public awareness of andropause is so low, many of the symptoms of hormone decline go ignored.
Common symptoms of andropause include:
- Low energy levels
- Loss of muscle tone and mass
- Weight gain, particularly in the midsection
- Hair loss, particularly for men
- Reduced libido
- Depression or low mood
- Poor memory and concentration
How can BioTE help?
BioTE hormone replacement pellets contain bioidentical hormones which restore the hormones which are not being adequately produced by the body. By restoring an optimum balance of hormones, the unpleasant symptoms of andropause and menopause are relieved.
Depending on the symptoms displayed, BioTE pellets will comprise of either estradiol or testosterone in addition to steric acid which works to bind the pellet. These ingredients gradually dissolve into the body. The compounds are customized to every patient, which means you’ll receive a dosage that is tailored to your body’s needs.
Once hormone balance has been restored, patients can expect to see the following benefits:
- Elimination of hot flushes, vaginal dryness and intimate pain
- Increase in energy levels
- Improvement in memory, concentration and productivity
- Increase in muscle mass, tone and endurance
- Improvement in fat loss
- Regrowth of hair on scalp
- Increase in sex drive
- Improvement in mood
In addition to these changes, BioTE can also help to reduce the risk of the following conditions, all of which become more prevalent with age:
- Heart attack
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
What exactly are hormone pellets?
Hormone replacement pellets are as small as a grain of rice. They’re inserted beneath the skin, usually in the upper buttocks. They gradually release a steady stream of hormones into the body over the course of several weeks.
For women, the pellets tend to last between 3 to 5 months, and for men they can last up to 6 months. However, since every patient’s pellets are customized to their specific symptoms, the frequency of pellet insertion varies from one patient to the next.
Why are hormone pellets so effective?
BioTE pellets deliver a gradual and steady release of hormones over the course of several months in order to ensure a consistent balance of hormones. Other hormone replacement therapies, such as injections, creams and patches, tend to deliver sudden releases of hormones, which can lead to a fluctuation of hormone levels. Pellets are a very reliable way of maintaining an optimum hormone balance that will alleviate symptoms of menopause and andropause most efficiently.

Are BioTE hormone pellets safe?
Hormone pellets have been used successfully all over the world since the 1930s, but it is only in recent years that they have been widely adopted in America. Misleading information has led some to worry about the safety of hormone pellets, but with bioidentical hormone therapy like that provided by BioTE, risks are minimal.
Unlike synthetic hormones – such as Progestin, the synthetic form of progesterone which is known to increase the risk of cancer – the bioidentical hormones used in BioTE pellets are identical to the molecular makeup of the hormones naturally produced by the body. BioTE pellets therefore do not increase the risk of cancer or heart disease.
BioTE hormone replacement pellets FDA approved, and they are manufactured in line with strict FDA regulations to ensure optimum safety.
Can I have BioTE hormone replacement therapy if I have other hormone-related problems?
As part of your BioTE treatment, all of your hormone levels will be assessed via a series of pre-treatment laboratory tests. This allows us to understand the current balance of hormones in your body and formulate a treatment plan that suits all of your needs. Even if you have problems with your thyroid or other hormone-related conditions, BioTE hormone therapy can help.
