Weight Loss MD’s Hormone Therapy Process
The path to a better you through hormone pellet therapy is just a phone call away. If you contact our Certified BioTE® Providers, they’ll ask you a few questions before setting up an appointment at our office in Mission Valley. Once you’ve arrived, we will take a blood test to determine whether to proceed with pellet therapy. If you are found to be a good candidate, our specialists will then customize hormone pellets that can address your specific hormonal imbalance needs. A pellet will then be inserted beneath the skin, dissolving over time while releasing consistent doses of hormones depending on activity levels, stress and gender of the patient, the pellets should last three to six months.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is BioTE®?
BioTE® is a bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for men and women. Pellets are great alternatives to synthetic hormone replacement therapy. Studies have shown that pellets provide symptom relief at a faster and more successful rate than alternative, synthetic methods.
Common Symptoms include, but are not limited to:
- – Reduced libido
- – Low energy
- – Feelings of depression
- – Anxiety
- – Lack of energy
- – Difficulty sleeping
- – Difficulty losing weight, despite diet & exercise
Why are pellets better than creams, patches, shots or pills?
They are a pure hormone that is not metabolized by products going through the liver, stomach, or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone, as your body calls for it, as the blood flow surrounding the pellets pick up what is needed.
How do the pellets work?
Pellets are placed in your glute, in the fatty tissue beneath the skin. Pellets are better than patches and creams, due to the fact that they are under your skin. Pellets being under your skin allow the bio-identical hormones to be distributed through your blood stream 24/7, as your body needs them. With pellets, patients do not experience a “roller coaster” effect, due to the fact that the pellets are constantly providing your blood stream with bio-identical hormones.
Where do the pellets go?
Because they are pure hormone without synthetic ingredients or filters, they completely dissolve over time into the bloodstream.
How long do the pellets last?
Pellets have been known to last between 3-6 months. The life span of your pellets depend on your activity level, stress level and gender.
I get horrible headaches – will they help me?
Yes! We have had great success, especially with women who have menstrual migraines, and new migrains that appear after age 35.
Do I need to take other medication(s)?
If you still have a uterus, you will need to be on natural progesterone as well.
Why do I need estrogen?
Estrogen is the most important hormone for women. It protects women against heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s. It also keeps women looking young and healthy.
Why do I need testosterone?
Testosterone is the third female hormone and is as essential as estrogen and progesterone. Testosterone is needed to keep our thought process quick and our libido healthy. It improves bone density, muscle mass, strength and prevents some types of depression. Plus it is the source of energy and solid sleep!
Will I grow unwanted hair from testosterone?
There is less chance of excess hair growth with natural testosterone than with synthetic hormones. Facial hair will grow with testosterone pellets but no more than when you were in your thirties.
