What is BioTE?

BioTE is a type of hormone replacement therapy that can treat low testosterone, low estrogen, or other hormone problems. BioTE uses pellet therapy to reduce unpleasant symptoms associated with hormone imbalance to give you a better quality of life.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

If you have low testosterone or estrogen, which commonly occurs with increasing age, you might experience:

  • Loss of sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Fatigue or unwanted weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • A slower metabolism
  • Losses in lean muscle mass
  • Increases in body fat
  • Thinning hair
  • Loss of breast fullness in women

These and other symptoms of hormone problems can diminish your self-confidence and overall vibrance. If you suspect hormone imbalance, see Dr. Lindsay and her team for an evaluation.

Is BioTE hormone therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for BioTE bioidentical hormone therapy, Dr. Lindsay weighs you, checks your vital signs, and reviews your medical history. She asks you about symptoms you may have and completes a comprehensive physical examination. 

Blood tests can also help Dr. Lindsay determine if you have hormone problems BioTE can correct.

What should I expect during BioTE treatment?

During BioTE treatment at Family First Wellness, Dr. Lindsay numbs the treatment area, makes a tiny incision, and places a small pellet just beneath your skin near your upper buttocks before closing the incision. 

You can resume a normal routine after the procedure as there’s no downtime associated with it. Simply avoiding strenuous activity for a short while afterward.

BioTE pellets release a slow, steady amount of testosterone or estrogen into your bloodstream over time to balance hormones and optimize your health. You should notice a difference in how you feel within a matter of weeks.

How long does BioTE last?

BioTE subdermal pellets can last 3-6 months depending on your weight, gender, absorption rates, and the severity of your hormone deficiency. Dr. Lindsay monitors your health and hormone levels periodically during BioTE treatment to ensure it’s working as it should.

Don’t live with bothersome symptoms of low testosterone, low estrogen, or other hormone imbalances when pellet hormone therapy is a simple solution that can produce dramatic results.
