No fasting is required in advance to the procedure.
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.
BioTE requires, at the minimum, our comprehensive blood panel which can be discussed with AIM Wellness, your BioTE 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 the pellet to be inserted. Once the pellet is inserted, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage.
After pellet insertion, its best to eliminate lower body exercise. This doesn’t include walking, but, extraneous exercise is not recommended. Swimming, hot tubs, and bath tubs are to be avoided, this doesn’t include showers. After removal of the bandage, normal activities may resume.
Each patient’s symptoms are unique and each patient’s paths to optimization is unique. Your journey will be specialized to fit your specific needs. Just as it doesn’t take you 1-2 weeks to get out of balance, it doesn't resolve that quickly either.
Since the pellets are bio-identical and contain nothing other than the hormone your body naturally produces, the pellets are completely dissolved and absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
