However, there are instances like hypogonadism that can occur at any age. Biote Certified Providers will qualify patients based on their individual lab results and current hormone levels.
What Are Male BHRT Pellets?
Pellets used for male BHRT are high-quality and custom-compounded with bioidentical testosterone. In an in-office appointment, these pellets are inserted subcutaneously in a patient’s upper buttocks. Within up to two to four weeks after a pellet insertion, the hormone therapy for men may begin to alleviate some unwanted symptoms. However, everyone’s body is different and some patients report feeling the full benefits after the second insertion.

Providers request extensive lab work looking at current hormone levels and other indicators of a hormone imbalance. Based on a hormone consultation and a review of the blood panel, a Biote Certified Provider will determine a patient’s candidacy for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Patients will schedule a quick follow-up appointment to review their results for pellet therapy insertion.
