bioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy
Disease prevention, and overall good health, are important to us all, especially as we age. And one of the main ways our bodies fight diseases and overall bodily health is through balanced hormones. The fact is, after the age of 30, we’ll all lose between three and 10 percent of our hormones in our bodies each year we age, which means aging makes us more susceptible to myriad diseases and ailments.
The good news is there are ways to balance the hormones, in effect keeping your body armed and ready for the aging process. Using what has become known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or bioidentical hormone replacement thearpy (BHRT), we can monitor your hormone levels and balance them using supplemental hormone therapies. One of the most trusted and tried therapies available today is the use of bioTE’s hormone pellet therapy.
The pellets are introduced into the body via a specific injection technique that allows them to slowly dissolve into the bloodstream. This allows the body to take only what it needs when it needs it, which is the key differentiation with pellet therapy in comparison to basic testosterone or estradiol injections.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE HORMONE PELLETS?
Hormone pellets are made of pure human-identical sex hormones, estradiol or testosterone, that are derived from natural plant sources (naturally occurring, so they include no artificially created materials). You may have also heard hormone pellets referred to as “bio-identical” hormones. The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders called pellets, ranging in size from a grain of rice to that of a Tic Tac. In the US, the best pellets are made and customized for patients’ needs by certified specialized compounding pharmacists under stringent guidelines and delivered to us sealed in sterile glass vials.
HOW ARE THE PELLETS INSERTED INSIDE THE BODY?
Pellets are inserted in the fatty layer under the skin of the upper buttocks, abdomen and hip area using special instruments that have been specifically engineered for hormone pellet insertion. The procedure itself takes no more than five minutes and is painless because your medical provider will use a local anesthetic. The small skin access port where the pellet is introduced into the fatty tissue is closed with steri-strips. To achieve full hormonal imbalance correction in all patients, only an experienced medical provider trained in the skills required to perform the procedure should be trusted.
