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.

Hormone Therapy Frequently Asked Questions:
Altaire recommends a medical consult with one of their providers as the first step to hormone optimization. At this consult, your health record will be completed and reviewed with the provider. Please bring a list of medications you are currently on, Your labs will also be drawn at this time.
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.
At a minimum, BioTE requires our comprehensive blood panel which you can discuss with your Altaire provider.
During the in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, 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.
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.
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. 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, so expect it to take time to resolve.
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.
