Hormone Replacement

Pellet Therapy

Diabetes & Hormone Therapy

Diabetes Testing Centers™ welcomes BioTE® (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement with Testosterone) as a partner to help balance hormones using pellets in our new and existing clinics.

Hormone Optimization Therapy

Each patient’s symptoms are unique, and so is each patient's path to hormone optimization through BHRT using pellets. Most bioidentical hormone replacement therapy patients report some symptom resolution in as little as four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. The bioidentical hormones for our hormone pellet therapy will be customized to fit your patient’s specific needs.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) may offer relief for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by medical providers. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and so much more. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. These ailments may be managed by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions and returning the patient to a state of hormone balance. BHRT may be a simple method for correcting these complex issues through hormone optimization. Hormones delivered by pellet therapy bypass the liver, do not affect clotting factors, do not increase the risk of thrombosis, and avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with other methods of delivery, like pills, creams, gels, and synthetic injections. BioTE® bioidentical hormone pellets are made from soy or the yam plant to create estradiol and/or testosterone molecules, unlike synthetic hormones, which are made from animal parts or urine and have a different molecular structure than what the body produces.

For Women:

  • Bioidentical pellets are superior to oral and topical hormone therapy with respect to the relief of menopausal symptoms.

  • Testosterone and estradiol delivered by pellet implantation support healthy cholesterol, triglycerides, and HDL cholesterol levels.

  • Hormone replacement therapy with estradiol and testosterone implants is superior to oral and topical (both the patch and gel) hormone replacement therapy for supporting healthy bone.

For Men:

  • Testosterone replacement therapy in men with subcutaneous pellet implants has been shown to be extremely effective, convenient, and safe.

  • Men who start pellet therapy for symptoms of andropause tend to stick with it — 93% of men who start pellet therapy continue it.

No other way of delivering hormones results in this truly patient-specific solution and eliminates the potential for human error at the patient end.
