BioTE Hormone Replacement Q & A
What Is Biote Hormone Replacement Therapy?
BioTE, also known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, provides your body with natural hormones identical to your own hormones to correct an imbalance and reduce symptoms associated with it. BioTE commonly comes in pellet form.
Dr. Grimsley inserts a BioTE hormone pellet underneath your skin two to four times each year. Hormones are slowly and steadily released from BioTE pellets to avoid up and down hormone fluctuations, you might experience with other hormone replacement products.
What are the Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance?
When hormone levels aren’t what they should be, you may experience symptoms that occur with low testosterone in men and low estrogen levels in women. Hormone imbalance commonly occurs with aging, and during menopause in women. If you experience the symptoms above, talk with Dr. Grimsley about how BioTE® hormone replacement can give you the quality of life you once had. Symptoms of hormone imbalance in men and women are:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low sex drive
- Loss of muscle mass
- Increases in body fat
- Mood changes
- Chronic fatigue
- Decreases in bone mass
- Brain fog
- Lower mental capacity
- Night Sweats
- Hot flashes
- Cold feet or hands
- Decreases in sex drive
- Weight gain
How Long Do Biote Pellets Take to Work?
The amount of time it takes for hormone levels to normalize after BioTE pellet insertion varies from patient to patient. It can take two to four weeks for you to notice positive results from BioTE hormone therapy, and up to six months for you to experience its full effects.
When you’re ready to feel more energized, reduce symptoms of hormone imbalance, and improve your sex life, call Dr. Grimsley to book an appointment today or schedule one online.
What Should I Expect During Biote Pellet Insertion?
During BioTE pellet insertion, which takes just minutes to complete, Dr. Grimsley numbs the insertion site so you won’t feel pain. He may insert a pellet into a numb area on your upper buttocks by making a small incision. After pellet insertion, he covers the incision site with a small bandage.
