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
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
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.
