Hormone replacement therapy via bioidentical hormone pellet implants
Balance Hormones with Pellets
Pellet Hormone Therapy is a delivery system for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that is proven to be safe and effective. In fact, it most closely mirrors what your body does naturally by providing the same steady, around-the-clock, low dosages your body once created.
Weight loss, improved libido, better sleep and greater metal acuity are just a few of the benefits both men and women experience.
What are Hormone Pellets?
Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded hormone therapies that address symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. The pellet method can help keep hormone levels consistent throughout the day.
The Bioidentical Difference
And by “bioidentical,” we mean that the chemical structure is the same as the hormones produced by your body. Our approach may help to prevent unwanted side effects.
How do Hormone Pellets Work?
Pellet hormone therapy administers hormones via small pellets implanted under the skin, typically in your hip or lower abdominal wall. These pellets measure only 3mm by 9mm—about the size of a grain of rice—and contain custom hormone preparations that are gradually metabolized by your body over the course of three to six months. How many pellets you need and how often they need to be replaced depends on your personal symptoms and hormone levels. Implantation is performed right in our office, usually under local anesthesia, and is painless for most patients.
Why Pellet Hormone Therapy?
- Ease of Use
Pellets require only a short outpatient procedure 2-4 times a year and the right balance of hormones are delivered each day for months.
- Steady Dosage
Designed to deliver a steady and predictable dose of hormones over the course of several months, helping you to avoid noticeable peaks and valleys caused by some other administration methods.
- Consistent Results
Other hormone replacement methods may produce good results, but only if you remember to take them. Pellets eliminate that risk, allowing you to experience greater therapeutic benefits.
The Benefits of Pellet Hormone Therapy
- Just the Right Balance
Pellets remain the only delivery system that provides steady blood serum levels over a long period of time.
- Simple, Safe Pellet Insertion
Once inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the bloodstream whenever the body needs it. This gives your body the ability to control the release of the hormone just as it did when the ovaries and testicles were working normally. Our method utilizes lab testing and symptom assessment to prescribe the precise doses of hormones, specifically for your needs.
- Promote Bone Density
Maintaining normal bone density becomes critical to good health. Fluctuating levels of estrogen and testosterone decrease bone strength and increase the chance of fractures. Women who undergo premature surgical menopause also remain at greater risk of developing osteoporosis, making it critical to check their hormone levels, as demonstrated by the four-fold increase in bone density.
Who is a Candidate?
Anyone! Hormone fluctuations and imbalances can be disruptive and uncomfortable. But, with the right care you can find lasting relief from hormone-related symptoms and an enhanced quality of life.
