Pellet therapy is ideal for patients desiring the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic. BioTe hormones are plant-based and biologically identical to human hormones. The goal of hormone pellet replacement therapy in women and men is to restore natural hormone balance.
Q: How often do you need replacement pellets?
A: In women, we typically perform treatments every 3 months and in men, they are every 5-6 months.
Q: Is blood work required before and/or after insertion?
A: Blood work is required before the initial insertion. A recheck of the hormone levels is done 4-6 weeks after the first pellet insertion only. Following this, we do a full panel of blood work about once a year.
Q: Is this procedure covered by insurance?
A: It is not well covered by insurance, but you can use HSA and sometimes FSA funds to cover the cost.
