What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy uses hormones derived 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 oral and transdermal forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient — the BioTE® Medical Method using bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only delivery 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?
Studies show pellets are one of the most effective ways to deliver hormones in both men and women. To create hormone pellets, a compounding pharmacist fuses estrogen or testosterone into small cylinders.
These pellets, some of which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue beneath 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 is an easily performed office procedure.
