BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Weight Loss

As men and women move into middle age, they may find that they feel sluggish and have put on some extra pounds, especially around the midsection. This feeling of low energy accompanied by weight gain can be a sign of hormone imbalance.  Proper levels of testosterone help keep men and women energized and promote the building of lean muscle mass.   Those with testosterone imbalances gain weight as a result of food being converted into fat instead of lean muscle.

However, BioTE® hormone pellet therapy can restore hormonal balance and have you feeling more energetic and ready to take on more physical activity, which can help you lose weight.

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Hair Loss

Many men (and women) experience hair loss as they grow older. Although there are many factors that can lead to hair loss, hormonal imbalance is typically a factor.  The hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is an androgen that shrinks hair follicles on the head, making it impossible for hair to survive and results in hair loss. BioTE® hormone pellet therapy can restore the hormones that maintain proper testosterone levels that are essential to maintaining a youthful appearance to skin, hair and nails.

  • Hot flashes
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Irregular periods
  • Worsening premenstrual syndrome, including premenstrual migraines

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Joint Pain

Estrogen and testosterone have an anti-inflammatory effect on joints and a decrease in these hormones can lead to the body becoming more prone to inflammation and pain.  Many people with aches and pains don't realize that the cause of their joint pain is hormonal. 

Hormone pellet therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation. Once the hormones are at an optimal level, men and women see relief from joint pain and feel youthful again.

Getting the hormones in balance can restore desire and the ability for men and women to enjoy healthy sex lives again. When hormones are balanced, sexual desire and the physical ability to perform return. 

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Andropause

This condition, often associated with low testosterone, is sometimes referred to as "Manopause", the male equivalent to menopause.  This condition primarily affects men over age 50, but it can occur earlier. The risk of prostate cancer and early heart disease can be associated with Andropause . 

Andropause can be treated with hormone pellet therapy to help alleviate the following symptoms:

  • A-D-K
  • Diindolylmethane (DIM)
  • Probiotics
  • Omega-3

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Night Sweats

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormones can rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They are powerful chemical messengers that circulate throughout the body and travel to specific cells to orchestrate many vital internal functions. But even a small fluctuation in hormone levels can cause big changes at the cellular level—or disrupt the delicate balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences for your overall health and well-being.

Choosing Hormone Replacement Therapy

Maintaining this delicate hormone balance is one reason to be cautious when selecting hormone replacement therapy. The goal should always be hormonal balance that is predicated on research rather than experimentation or guessing. Many therapies merely attempt to replenish estrogen and/or progesterone and testosterone, but they never achieve homeostasis.

Any endocrinologist will tell you that hormone balance is the foundation of health. Research continues to demonstrate that hormones are the key to the intricate interrelationships of the body's systems. They play a pivotal role in our overall health.


  • Joint Pain
  • Migraines

  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Mood Swings
  • Extreme Fatigue

BioTE Testosterone Pellet Therapy

Testosterone imbalance can affect both men and women. When left untreated, low testosterone can damage your breasts, bones, brain, heart and joints.  Testosterone imbalance can be treated with testosterone pellet therapy. This treatment is safe, effective and has been in use for more than 80 years.  As we age, our bodies slow the production of testosterone. Men ages 30 to 70 will lose 1% to 3% of total testosterone production per year, and women prior to peri-menopause and/or menopause lose 50% of their testosterone production.


This drop in production can lead to the following symptoms:



  • Iodine
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin K2

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Hot Flashes

Hot flashes, while most common in women, can occur in men as well. In many cases, the underlying cause of hot flashes is hormonal imbalance (particularly estrogen) which can be treated with hormone pellet therapy.  Hot flashes cause temperature increase in the body which are followed by an extreme cold known as “chills.” In addition, an individual might experience redness in the face & neck, perspiration, dizziness and a rapid heart beat.  Hot flashes can be treated with hormone pellet therapy which will optimize and balance hormone levels.

  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Diabetes Mellitus (DM)
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Sarcopenia (Muscle Loss)
  • Possible Breast Cancer

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Depression

As we reach middle age, we encounter a gradual decrease in hormone levels that can lead to periodic feelings of depression. These imbalances are treatable with hormone pellet therapy.

BioTE® hormone pellet therapy is a natural alternative to taking antidepressants to combat depression.  BioTE® naturally and steadily balances your hormone levels where  synthetic hormones can lead to fluctuating hormone levels.


 Once your hormones are balanced, you may see results that include weight lose, better sleep, improved libido and more.

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Memory

During middle age, both men and women can experience more frequent forgetfulness, or what's referred to as "brain fog". Cognitive changes during menopause and andropause are usually the result of a gradual decrease in key hormone levels, and these hormonal imbalances can lead to difficulty concentrating and remembering things. 

BioTE® hormone pellet therapy can help to resolve symptoms such as mood swings and poor sleep that are contributors to memory and cognition loss. 

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Skin Health

​​During perimenopause and menopause, a decline in the levels of estrogen and testosterone in the body can cause accelerated aging of the skin. In women, you may see an increase in oilier skin, facial hair (especially on the chin), sagging skin and wrinkles.  This is a result of the thinning of skin and the slowing of cell turnover rates which can cause  water loss and dry skin. In men you may see a reduction of collagen production and a slower process of wound healing.  The loss of estrogen and testosterone also reduces the number of blood vessels in the skin, resulting in pale skin with a lack of nutrients traveling to the skin's surface.

BioTE® hormone pellet therapy is a treatment designed to balance hormones naturally.  Once your hormones are balanced, you will notice improvement in the look and feel of the skin. You can get back to looking and feeling better about yourself with hormone pellet therapy.

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Insomnia

Perimenopause, menopause or andropause may cause insomnia. Chronic stress, adrenal fatigue and poor dirt can also lead to Insomnia.  Because sleep is essential to the body's repair mechanisms, lack of sleep can lead to accelerated aging, obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. 

Hormone pellet therapy can help to resolve hormonal fluctuations that can interrupt sleep and cause long-term sleep problems. 

  • Urine leakage when coughing or sneezing
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble sleeping

BioTE Estrogen Pellet Therapy

Estrogen Imbalance may cause any of the following symptoms:

  • Joint pain
  • Migraine/severe headache
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Bone loss

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Fatigue

A drop in hormone levels can cause troubled sleep which can lead to feeling tired and fatigued during the day.  Hormone pellet therapy for fatigue can optimize hormone levels in women and men and help in the treatment of conditions like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It can also aid in the treatment of Adrenal Fatigue in which the adrenal glands do not maintain optimal hormone levels. This condition is typically brought on by intense or chronic stress. 


Many people who experience fatigue don't realize that the cause is hormonal.  BioTE® bioidentical hormone pellet therapy can eliminate fatigue and exhaustion. Once the hormones are balanced, men and women tend to sleep better and feel refreshed and like themselves during the day.

BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy for Menopause

Menopause occurs when a women's menstrual cycle ends. The symptoms associated with menopause occur due to testosterone and estrogen imbalances.  Early onset menopause can lead to depression, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson's disease and dementia.
