What is Biote?
Your hormones impact almost every aspect of your physiology; therefore, if your endocrine gland produces too much or too little of a specific hormone, it can cause an imbalance and significantly affect your body’s function.
Biote is a company that utilizes bioidentical hormone pellets to supplement the body’s endocrine system with hormones it lacks, like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. With hormone therapy, like Biote, you can safely balance your hormones and improve your quality of life.
Benefits of Biote include:
- Balanced mood
- Weight loss
- Increased energy
- Restored libido
- Improved sleeping habits
Bioidentical hormone pellets resemble your body’s naturally produced hormones, providing an efficient alternative to synthetic hormones. After insertion, the pellets dissolve in your body, and your bloodstream absorbs them over time. Most patients notice results within four weeks of receiving their Biote procedure.
How do I know if Biote is right for me?
When you arrive for your appointment at MyDoc Women's Health Specialists, the team discusses your medical history and symptoms to determine if Biote is the correct treatment for you.
Biote provides comprehensive treatment options for patients with hormone-related conditions, including menopause, diabetes, and more. You may struggle from hormone imbalance if you experience the following symptoms:
- Slow or rapid heartbeat
- Frequent mood changes
- Unexplained weight loss or gain
- Hot flashes
Depending on your symptoms, your provider may suggest a diagnostic test, such as a blood test, ultrasound, or pelvic test, which can determine if you have a hormone imbalance.
How does the Biote procedure work?
Upon determining that Biote is the correct procedure, the MyDoc Women’s Health Specialists team prepares for it by applying anesthesia where you receive the Biote injection. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, they make an incision to place the hormone pellets in your skin.
After this, the team wraps the treated area with a bandage, allowing the incision to heal. Avoid strenuous exercise and exposing the treated area to water until you return to MyDoc Women's Health Specialists to remove the bandage.
Over the course of six months, the pellets will dissolve into your bloodstream. Your provider should insert new pellets 2-4 times a year for the best results.
