What Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
The primary goal of BioTe Medical is to help men balance their male hormones. A hormonal imbalance can occur at any point in a man’s life—even in his early 30s. Symptoms can be brought on by stress, an acute injury, illness, poor nutrition, inadequate exercise, and a host of other factors. Having too much or too little of just one hormone can have ramifications throughout the body, so it’s important to know the indicators of male hormone imbalance, such as low testosterone.
Testosterone replacement therapy can be used as gels, patches, gum and check, nasal, injection or implantable pellets. Bioidentical pellet hormones (different from injectable synthetic) closely resemble the molecular structure of human hormones.
The BioTe method of hormone therapy provides a consistent release of Testosterone in the bloodstream. Pellets used for biomedical hormone replacement (BHRT) are inserted under the skin in the upper buttocks to balance hormones in men.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy aims to treat the source of the problem (low Testosterone levels), not just the symptoms.
What are the symptoms of low testosterone?
The most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men are often disregarded until they impact quality of life so severely that treatment is aggressively sought out. Some of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men include:
- Brain Fog
- Low Mood
- Low Energy
- Weight Gain
- Elevated Blood Sugar
- Decreased Bone Density
- Abnormal Heart Conditions
- Decreased Sexual Performance
- Inability to Maintain Muscle Mass

Who is a candidate for bioidentical hormone pellet therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may help men whose hormones are out of balance.

A simple blood test will assess your current hormone status and will be reviewed by your provider.
What are the benefits of balancing hormones in men?
Enhanced well-being, increased muscle mass and stamina, improved sleep and energy and increased sex drive.
How to get started?
A patient can schedule an office visit to test current hormone levels. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, providers will determine candidacy through the BioTe method. Patients schedule a follow up appointment to review their results as well as pellet therapy insertion if desired.
How often is treatment needed?
Males feel best with treatment every 5-6 months
What is expected after treatment?
After the treatment heavy exercising (running, biking, and squats) and submerging in water (pools, ocean, hot tubs) should be avoided for 5-7 days.
The effects of the hormones can be noticed approximately 2-4 weeks after treatment.
What are the possible side effects?
Possible side effects include bruising, infection, skin reaction, and pellet extrusion (rare). Increased hair growth is common, and acne prone patients may have acne flare ups.
