What Patients Are Saying About BioTe®?

Vandna Jerath, MD, medical director of Optima Vitality MD and Optima Women’s Healthcare, interviews Gary Donovitz, MD, physician founder, CEO, and medical director of BioTE Medical, regarding the benefits of the BioTE  bioidentical hormone pellet therapy.  Dr. Jerath had her BHRT pellets placed by Dr. Donovitz and this interview is done both pre and post pellet placement.


What is BHRT Pellet Therapy?  

Hormones are powerful biochemical messengers sent to specific cells, glands, and organs throughout your body to regulate many of your body’s internal functions and organs. Even a small fluctuation in levels can cause big changes or even disrupt the balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences and adverse effects.  Hormone depletion can wreak havoc on the body.

Bio identical hormones are non-synthetic, plant-based hormones that are identical biologically to human hormone allowing your body to recognize and respond to the hormone.

Pellet Therapy uses estrogen and/or testosterone hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormones. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone utilized in the pellets.

Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet subdermal implants is extremely effective because the pellets consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations – BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 3 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.  The pellets are not time released, but rather absorbed through your bloodstream based on your body's need.  More active patients need a new pellet sooner than less active patients. 

Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellets are ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.  The pellets are slightly larger than a grain of rice and can be inserted under local anesthesia in a simple in-office procedure. 

A personally customized hormone pellet and nutraceutical plan is developed for each patient based upon their symptoms, age, weight, health conditions, and blood hormone levels.

Unique dosing is generated for each individual patient, so dosing is customized for what your body needs. Pellets deliver pure, bio-identical hormones directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for up to 5 months. Pills, patches, creams and shots cannot provide a steady delivery of hormones 24/7. Pellets provide a constant supply of hormones that your body recognizes as its own, which significantly reduces the chance of adverse side effects.

The goal with hormone pellet replacement therapy in women AND men is to restore our natural hormone balance to improve vitality.

Optimized hormones may significantly reduce the risk of serious health problems, such as:

Osteoporosis -  Hormonal imbalance can cause osteoporosis in women who are experiencing menopause and men who are going through andropause. Low levels of estrogen and testosterone can lead to weakened bones which may become stronger with hormone pellet therapy.

Azheimer's Disease - Having balanced hormones may help to alleviate the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and reduce instances of forgetfulness in men and women.

Heart Disease
- Proper levels of estrogen in women and testosterone in men have likely prevent heart disease and reduce the chance of heart attacks.

Diabetes - Balanced levels of estrogen and progesterone in women and testosterone in men may help decrease insulin resistance, which improves blood sugar control and helps prevent diabetes.

BHRT Pellet Therapy for Women  

Women lose estrogen and testosterone as they age, starting as early as age 30.  As a woman ages, her body becomes less effective in producing these essential hormones which fall to unhealthy levels creating a hormone imbalance in your body.

Estrogen is a woman’s most important hormone. Without hormone replacement therapy, the loss of estrogen puts her at increased risk for ovarian failure, osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, parkinson’s disease and diabetes. The longer a woman is without the protection of her own estrogen, the greater the risk for serious health consequences of these conditions.

Symptoms of estrogen deficiency include hot flashes, brittle bones, loss of skin elasticity, thinning of the vagina, mood swings, and cognitive decline.

Testosterone hormone therapy
gives a woman her mental clarity, libido and muscle tone and mass. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency include night sweats, low sex drive, fatigue, sleep problems, confusion, weight gain and muscle atrophy, joint pain, and decreased vaginal lubrication.

The effect of hormone deficiency on the brain, muscle, bone, heart and metabolism can be significant without hormone replacement therapy for women and dangerous to long term health.

The brain needs normal amounts of testosterone in balance with estrogen to produce serotonin, which supports emotional balance. When lacking in these hormones, a woman will experience emotional instability that often results in increased anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, anger, sadness and depression.

Premenopausal and perimenopausal women typically benefit from testosterone pellet therapy and can continue birth control pills for contraceptionPostmenopausal women typically benefit from combination estrogen and testosterone pellet therapy.  Women who still have a uterus must also take natural progesterone pills when on estrogen.  Women who have undergone hysterectomy do not need progesterone.


BHRT Pellet Therapy for Men  

Men lose 3-10% of their testosterone per year starting at age 30.  Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, loss of muscle mass, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, difficulty achieving or sustaining erection, and weight gain.

The male equivalent to menopause or low T is known as andropause.

Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only method of testosterone therapy that gives sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day, for 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which in effect, minimizes mood and energy fluctuations.

Testosterone pellet therapy is more cost-effective than patches, creams, or shots.

What if Another Physician Says it is Not Safe?   

It’s about a patient making an informed choice and improving your quality of life.  All medical therapy and options have risks.

Synthetic hormones are known to increase the risk for stroke, heart attack, blood clots, and breast cancer as per the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) Study.  Although sometimes considered to be alternative or controversial therapy, bio-identical pellet therapy appears to be a safer option.

Although no bio-identical hormones are FDA approved, all the ingredients used to compose the BioTE® BHRT pellets are FDA approved, natural, and undergo intense independent testing for regulation and control.

Researched and developed since 1939 in the US and Europe, there is a myriad of data to support the ‘long term’ safety and efficacy of hormones delivered by pellet implants. Bio-identical hormone Pellet Therapy is being used safely in 5 continents and has been studied for 8 decades, not only looking at safety and efficacy but the prevention of disease states such as breast cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, Type 2 diabetes and so much more.

There are hundreds of studies available to practitioners with regards to hormone pellet therapy, unfortunately most do not know where to find them nor take or have the time to research the studies.
