What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural sources to replicate the body's normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy — which produce "roller coaster" hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient — BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months without any "roller coaster" effect.

What are Hormone Pellets?

Pellets contain a natural source of estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone used in the pellets.

These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.

Precise Dosing is Key.

Proper hormone levels are determined by the BioTE® comprehensive bloodwork analysis. Unique dosing is generated for each individual patient, so dosing is customized for what your body needs. Pellets deliver bio-identical hormones directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for up to 5 months. Pills, patches, creams and shots cannot provide a steady delivery of hormones 24/7. Pellets provide a constant supply of hormones that your body recognizes as its own.

Changing the Way We Are

Millions Turn Away From Synthetic Hormones

When significant health safety concerns arose in 2002 for women using synthetic hormone replacement therapies (HRT), millions stopped taking it. Up to 70% according to one survey. Patients and physicians began searching for alternatives.

Bio-Identical Hormones: The Right Choice for Your Body

Countless women and men have now made the switch to bio-identical hormones. It is finally receiving considerable attention in the U.S. and being more widely prescribed.

Hormone Balance is NOT a One-Size-Fits-All!

After the shocking results of the Women's Health Initiative study, a large number of physicians turned to bio-identical hormones although many of them lacked the background, training or expertise in the field. While these doctors are good at prescribing the right kind of hormone (bio-identical), they often fail to actually balance a patient's hormones - something that is vital to good health and well-being.

Other Bio-identical Methods Just Don't Cut It

Other bio-identical delivery methods such as creams, pills, injections and even micronized capsules - cannot provide a steady stream of hormone in your bloodstream twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. That means your patients are still subject to a roller coaster ride of hormone levels. And even though patches do provide a constant stream of hormone, they have to be changed often. And then there's that sticky adhesive issue to deal with.
