In this article, Birmingham, MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, MD answers patients’ most frequently asked questions about BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Almost every aspect of human health and wellness is regulated by the body’s hormones. But, decreases or imbalances in the production of hormones puts a person at risk for a great number of health issues. Some of the many problems that can result from hormone imbalance include: loss of energy, weight gain (particularly belly fat), decreased sex drive, painful sex, thyroid problems, aging skin, osteoporosis and many more health problems.
Hormone replacement therapy is used to replace a patient’s missing or declining hormone levels, to restore the healthy functioning of the body’s many systems.
What is “BioIdentical” Hormone Replacement?
The hormones used in bioidentical hormone replacement are derived from natural sources and are structurally, identical to the actual human hormones that occur naturally within a person’s body.
The BioTE® hormone replacement pellets we offer our patients at AMAE in Birmingham, MI are chemically identical to human hormones, as well as completely naturally derived. BioTE® hormone replacement pellets are 100% derived from natural plant or animal sources, and are NOT synthesized in a lab like other hormone treatments.
Naturally restoring hormone balance to patients with bioidentical hormones can offer lasting relief from a wide variety of medical issues and symptoms that are caused by hormone deficiency.
How do Pellets Deliver Bioidentical Hormone Replacement?
BioTE® hormone replacement pellets are inserted under the patient’s skin, by Dr. Ali in our Birmingham, MI medical office. It is a quick 5 minute procedure that only requires a mild local anesthetic.
The pellets are time-released, and continue to release estrogen, and/or testosterone into the body incrementally and consistently over time – replacing the depleted or missing hormones and maintaining a healthy hormone balance.
Why are Hormone Pellets the Best Delivery Method?
Other methods of delivering hormone replacement – including pills and creams – only provide inconsistent delivery of hormones. So, the hormone levels do not stay level or balanced – and relief from symptoms is irregular and unpredictable. However sub-dermal (under-the-skin) time-released pellets deliver constant, consistent, and balanced delivery of the bioidentical hormones.
