What labwork is required?
Prior to the pellet procedure, Dr. Smith will review the results of a blood test done to determine your hormone levels. Another blood draw is usually done about four weeks after the first pellet insertion to see if the dosing used was on target for you.You will only need to have your hormone levels rechecked about once a year or if there are any significant changes in your health.
Where can I get my labwork done?
You can have your blood drawn by your primary care provider, or we can provide you with the necessary paperwork for you to have your labwork done at a laboratory of your choice.
Is BioTE covered by insurance?
You may wish to check with your insurance company to determine if hormone replacement therapy is covered by your insurance plan. BioTE® bio-identical hormone pellet treatments are not a covered expense on any insurance plans, and we do not submit insurance claims for this service.
- How often will I need pellets?
Usually every 4-5 months.
- Why are pellets better than creams, patches, shots or pills?
They are pure hormone that is not metabolized into byproducts by going through the liver, stomach or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet as the blood flow surrounding the pellets picks up what is needed.
- Where do the pellets go?
Because they are pure hormone without fillers or synthetic ingredients, they completely dissolve.
- How long will it take for my body to get back to lean normal?
That depends on how much you exercise and work out, as well as your age. Studies show, testosterone decreases fat and increases muscle and lean body mass. Testosterone also increases your natural growth hormone and therefore will improve your stamina to work out and increase muscle mass.
- I have no libido – what will this do for that, if anything?
Good hormone balance will greatly improve your libido. The addition of testosterone in pellet form can change everything for the better!
- I get horrible headaches – will they help me?
Yes! We have had great success, especially with migraines that appear after age 35.
- Why do I need testosterone?
Testosterone is the third female hormone and is as essential as estrogen and progesterone. We need this hormone to keep our thought process quick and our libido healthy. It improves bone density, muscle mass, strength and prevents some types of depression. It is also the source of energy and solid sleep!
