Keeping your hormones balanced is essential for good health and disease prevention especially as we get older. Hormones rejuvenate, regenerate and restore your body in both men and women. Even a minor fluctuation in hormones levels can cause big changes at the cellular level or disrupt the delicate internal balance in your body this is where BioTE® hormone replacement therapy can help!

Too much or too little of a particular hormone can have serious consequences for your overall health and well-being. At Syracuse Medical in Baldwinsville, we specialize in using BioTE® bio-identical hormone pellet replacement therapy to help keep your hormones in the proper balance.

What Is Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Hormone pellet therapy corrects hormone imbalances in the body as we age. The pellets used for hormone replacement therapy are smaller than a grain of rice and comprised of a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. They are placed in the fatty tissues underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream. Because these are pure hormones and identical to the hormones found naturally in your body, the pellets are not metabolized into byproducts by going through your liver, stomach, or skin. This system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone at the right time. 

Common Symptoms Of Hormone Imbalance

If you experience any of the symptoms below, you may have a hormonal imbalance and be a candidate for hormone replacement pellet therapy.

  • Lack of energy and fatigue during the day

What People Are Saying About BioTE® Hormone Replacement

What Are The Risks Of Having Imbalanced Hormones?

Balanced hormones are important to ensure good health and help prevent diseases in men and women. Unbalanced hormones put you at increased risk for:

  • Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Stroke
  • Thyroid malfunction
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Memory loss
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Libido issues
  • Sexual dysfunction

Numerous studies have shown that hormone balances wreak havoc on the body particularly during perimenipause, menopause, and andropause (decreased testosterone levels in men). While it is normal for men and women to experience some decline in health during these stages, having imbalanced hormones puts you at even greater risk of developing disease.

Why Choose Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?

 Maintaining your delicate hormone balance isn’t easy which is why when you are selecting a provider for hormone replacement therapy you need to choose cautiously. Not all hormone imbalance therapies are created equally. Some treatments focus on using bio-identical hormones while others use synthetic methods.

At Syracuse Medical, one of the many reasons we selected BioTe’s pellet hormone therapy is because it uses natural bio-identical hormone replacement instead of synthetic methods which have been proven to be unsafe with inconsistent results.

A few of the benefits of bio-identical pellet hormone therapy include:

  • Cardio protective (reduces risk of heart disease)
  • Consistent optimization
  • Only need 3-4 insertions per year for women and 2-3 for men
  • Increased libido
  • Improves sleep
  • Fat loss in your mid-section
  • Improved energy

How Do I Know If I Have A Hormone Imbalance & What Type Of Therapy I Need? 

Before we prescribe any type of treatment plan, we start with a comprehensive bloodwork analysis. Because everybody is different as are hormone levels, we customize every patient’s dose. This analysis tells us exactly which hormones are out of balance and how far they are out of balance. Once we have this analysis completed, our medical professionals provide you with your customized treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions On Hormone Replacement Therapy

How Does BioTE® Fix My Hormone Imbalance?

We chose BioTE® pellet hormone replacement therapy because it uses bioidentical hormone optimization to restore balance in your body. The pellets are composed of natural plant sources to replicate your body’s natural hormonal levels. Patients using this type of therapy have found it to be very effective because pellet implants consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones as the body needs.

Traditional forms of hormone replacement therapy tend to produce “roller coaster” hormone levels resulting in mood and energy fluctuations. Pellet therapy provides sustained, consistent doses throughout the day for 3-5 months. Bioidentical hormone replacement pellets contain the exact hormones as your body produces and have been used effectively since 1939.

What Makes Pellet Therapy Better Than Other Forms of Hormone Replacement Treatment?

While there are numerous types of hormone replacement therapy such as pills, patches, creams and shots; bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy is the best way to give your body the proper doses of hormones as your body needs them. A few other benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy include:

  • The hormone pellets are identical to your body’s own hormones
  • Customized dosing for each individual
  • Hormones delivered directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Pellets last anywhere from 3-5 months
  • No “roller coaster” effects resulting in fluctuating in mood and energy
  • Decreased risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes
  • Increased collagen production for better skin
  • Hormone balance based on research, not experimentation or guessing

Hormone balance is the foundation of health. Research demonstrates that hormones are the key to the intricate, interrelationships of our body’s systems. Maintaining optimal hormone balance is pivotal to your overall health and well being.

How Long Does It Take for BioTE Pellets to Start Working?

While every person is unique, most patients report symptomatic relief in as little as 7-10 days after your pellet insertion. Once the pellets are inserted in the gluteal area, a consistent dose of bio-identical hormones enters the bloodstream.

How Often Do I Need to Get Pellets Inserted?

Typically women have 3-4 insertions per year and men have 2-3 insertions per year.

Is BioTE Covered by Insurance?

Typically, your blood work is covered by your insurance but the actual pellet therapy is considered an elective procedure and not covered by insurance.
