Hormone Therapy For Men & Women | Altaire Clinic

Hormones work to rejuvenate, regenerate, and restore vital internal functions throughout the body. So keeping them in balance is necessary for good health and disease prevention – especially as we age. Hormone imbalance in men and women can lead to a variety of health and quality of life issues. By restoring these hormones to a natural balance, your body can experience better overall health.

At Altaire Clinic, we believe in finding the best treatments for patients and that is why we partnered with BioTE® for hormone optimization. BioTE® ( Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) is a company that believes in high standards for all of its providers and patients utilizing their pellets. BioTE® guarantees a 98% purity with pellets and stands behind their custom nutraceuticals.

Why You Should Choose BioTE®

BioTE hormone therapy can have a positive impact on the body and mind. It can be a more effective, natural HRT option for postmenopausal women, can promote a positive mood, a balanced mood, and can prevent a variety of drug side effects that are common with other types of hormone replacement therapies.

The beneficial effects of BioTE can be life-changing for both men and women who are experiencing a decrease in hormones.

Below are some common reasons why more people are turning to BioTE hormone treatments:

You're Experiencing Symptoms That Are Associated With Falling Hormone Levels

Common symptoms of testosterone and estrogen imbalances can include fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, problems concentrating, problems with memory, depression, irritability, moodiness, and loss of libido. A decline in estrogen may also cause you to experience hair thinning, can increase your risk of urinary incontinence, may cause energy fluctuations, unwanted hair growth, hot flashes, and night sweats. Low levels of testosterone can cause the libido to crash and may cause problems with mental clarity, and getting and maintaining an erection.

You Want To Try Natural Hormone Therapy

BioTE is a natural method of hormone therapy that uses bioidentical hormones that are similar to natural hormones. Unlike other forms of hormone therapy, such as pills, gels, creams, patches, and rings, Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets do not contain any artificial fillers and will completely dissolve over time.

You're Tired Of Dealing With Messy Creams Or Gels Or Can't Remember To Take Pills.

Since this hormone therapy system uses pellets that are implanted under the skin, hormone delivery automatically occurs without any intervention on the patient’s part. All they have to do is remember to have the pellets replaced every three-seven months, based on the schedule the Altaire provider will establish for them, and based on their medical history, symptoms, and specific needs.

You Want To Avoid The Risk Of Serious Side Effects

Hormone replacement therapy comes with some risks, depending on the type of therapy you choose. BioTE hormone pellet therapy is an effective, well-tolerated treatment that minimizes side effects in a couple of important ways:

First, it uses bioidentical hormones. Second, BioTE hormone release occurs over time, the same way the body releases natural hormones. That means that you won’t have to worry about the common peaks and valleys that are often associated with other types of hormone replacement therapies. The hormone delivery method is also unique. Unlike gels and creams, the hormones that are delivered with this optimal therapy are delivered directly into the bloodstream, so they can address a whole array of symptoms more effectively.

You Have Tried And Were Unhappy With Other Hormone Replacement Products

Maybe you’ve tried other types of hormone replacement therapy in the past that didn’t work. Due to the way BioTE hormone pellet therapy works, many patients who had unpleasant experiences with hormone replacement therapy in the past had great results when they switched to BioTE hormone pellet therapy.

*Please keep in mind that every patient is unique and your results for each treatment may vary.

Hormone Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Do Before The Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy Insertion?

One week before the procedure, if possible, stop all NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, etc.). No fasting in advance of the procedure is required.

What Test Is Required Before The Insertion?

BioTE use requires adequate testing before treatment, such as a comprehensive blood panel, which you can discuss with your Altaire provider.

What Happens During The In-Office Insertion?

During the in-office visit, patients are brought into the exam room, and the insertion site is numbed. The most common site of insertion is the upper buttocks. A small incision is then made for pellet insertion. Once the pellet is inserted, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage. The procedure only takes a few minutes.

What Happens During The Week Following The Insertion?

After pellet insertion, it’s best to eliminate lower body exercise. You can walk, but extraneous activity is not recommended. Swimming, hot tubs, and bathtubs are to be avoided; however, showers are permitted. After removal of the bandage, normal activity may resume.

How Often Is Pellet Insertion Necessary?

As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization and restoring normal levels. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance and return to a natural level, so expect it to take time to resolve.

What Happens To The Pellets After The Insertion?

Since the pellets are bio-identical and contain nothing more than the hormones your body naturally produces, the pellets are completely dissolved and absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
