BioTe Hormone Replacement Pellet FAQs –
At AMAE we now offer BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – to help both female and male patients balance hormones to lead a better, healthier, longer and more satisfying life.
In this article we answer some of our patient’s most frequently asked questions about BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using pellets.
Why do my hormones need to be replaced or “balanced”?
Often, people experiencing symptoms such as exhaustion, stress, “brain fog”, weight gain, low sex drive, sleep disturbances, and more are actually suffering from hormonal imbalance. Additionally, low or imbalanced missing hormones can contribute to serious medical conditions such as cardiovascular risk, repressed immune system function, osteoporosis, and more.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can get to the root cause of these complex symptoms and conditions – and return patients to a state of healthy hormone balance.
What are bioidentical hormone replacement pellets?
“Bioidentical” hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) means that the hormones used are structurally the same as normal human hormones. Therefore, they bring the patient’s hormones – such as estrogen, and/or testosterone – back into balance naturally, in just the same way that one’s body does when it is functioning properly.
The hormones are delivered via tint time-released “pellets” that are smaller than a grain of rice. These are placed under the skin for constant consistent and ongoing release of the necessary levels of hormones making them the most superior method of hormone replacement.
How do I know if I have a hormone imbalance?
The first step to BHRT is to schedule a consultation with certified BioTE provider Dr. Ali. A simple blood test is administered in out Birmingham, MI medical office, and it will be sent out for extensive lab work to determine which hormones are reduced or out of balance in your body.
Once your individual and unique hormone profile has been established, Dr. Ali will personalize a hormone replacement therapy program just for you. The bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are not “one size fits all” – they will be customized for your body’s unique hormone replacement needs.
What is the time-frame for bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy?
Studies show that patients may see the effects of hormone therapy as soon as two to four weeks after pellets are inserted – often with a dramatic decrease in symptoms.
Even better, one BHRT pellet insertion can last up to five weeks in women and six weeks in men. This means that there are no daily pills to remember, and no messy creams to apply. All it takes is a five minute procedure in our Birmingham, MI office – and you can forget about it for a full month or more!
How can bioidentical hormone replacement pellets help women?
Female hormone imbalance can cause the development of brown spots on the face, aging skin, severe or painful menstruation, PMS, ovarian cysts, infertility thinning hair, loss of energy, vaginal pain or dryness, loss of sexual interest, reduced sexual sensation, or even pain during sex can also result from hormone imbalance.
The effects of a female hormone imbalance may also be emotional, causing mood swings, depression, anxiety and other mental conditions.
But thanks to women’s hormone replacement therapy, many of these conditions or symptoms can be significantly minimized.
How can bioidentical hormone replacement pellets help men?
An estimated 13 million men suffer from low testosterone. Symptoms of male hormone imbalance can include low sex drive, decreased performance, loss of muscle, weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, low blood pressure, unstable blood sugar, acne and much more. Mental effects of insufficient male hormones can include lack of mental clarity, depression, and anxiety.
BioTe bioidentical hormone replacement pellets can help alleviate the physical, mental, and emotional strains of male hormone imbalance.
