What Is Biote?
The NeuLine Clinic can provide BioTE in Celina and McKinney. BioTE’s method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, may help avoid unwanted side effects connected with a hormone imbalance. The pellets in BioTE’s pellet therapy are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. The BioTE method may help keep a patient’s hormone levels consistent throughout the day. The pellets use hormones that are bioidentical to those found in the human body. This reduces the possibility of side effects. Also, because this therapy releases hormones slowly and over time, the possibility of high and low levels is diminished, unlike with pills. This is also the same way your body naturally releases hormones.
I’m Feeling Extremely Tired. Could Biote Help? What Are Some Other Reasons People Choose This Therapy?
Some of the chief complaints we receive are lack of energy, extreme fatigue, difficulty sleeping, foggy memory, mood swings, weight gain, an inability to lose weight, decreased strength, muscle and joint discomfort for no real reason, and reduced sexual performance or desire.
How Does An Appointment Go? What Should I Expect?
The first visit is a consult with lab work. We’ll go over all your chief complaints. Once your results come back, we’ll determine how many pellets you should receive. It’s an in-office procedure that only takes 10-15 minutes. You’ll lay on your side and receive an injection into the upper buttocks area. We use butterfly strips, and no sutures are needed.
What Sort Of Benefits Can I Expect From Biote Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Some of the biggest benefits include increased energy, weight loss, better mood, better memory, mental clarity, restored and increased libido, greater ease of sleeping at night, reduced muscle and joint pain, and a reduction in hot flashes. Many people report feeling healthier and happier overall. Additionally, treatment with bioidentical hormones not only helps you feel younger but can also help you look younger and be more active.
How Often Will I Need Biote Therapy, And How Long Does It Take To Start Working?
It’s a 13 to 16-week treatment. Every patient is unique, and so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Some patients may experience symptom relief anywhere from 72 hours to up to three weeks for first-time patients. Most people feel some kind of symptom relief within a month — or sooner — of starting BioTE therapy. The bioidentical hormone replacement therapy journey is customized to fit your specific needs.
Does It Hurt?
You just feel a little pinch — it’s virtually painless. We’ve never had a patient who could not tolerate it. It’s a small procedure that only takes about five minutes.
