Did you know that hormones help prevent osteoporosis, a condition in which bones become weak and more susceptible to breaking. Hormonal problems can be one of the causes of osteoporosis.
Bone production is affected by both testosterone and estrogen, so both men and women can experience bone loss as they age. Levels of both hormones drop with age, with the risk being higher in women. Other hormonal imbalances, including thyroid or pituitary gland problems and lower hormone production connected with eating disorders, also can harm bone health. Keeping your hormones in balance is excellent for bone health.
What is BioTe Hormone Therapy?
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. Pellets do not have to be removed, as they dissolve in your body over time.
Did you know that hormone replacement using pellet implants has been around for more than 70 years? Bioidentical pellet therapy was originally developed in Europe during the 1930s. Today, practitioners use it to restore hormonal balance in men and women of all ages. Best of all they are natural, safe, and effective. Numerous scientists have published positive research on the benefits of this therapy in authoritative international journals for decades.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PELLET HORMONE THERAPY?
- Ease of Use: Unlike other hormone administration methods, pellet hormone therapy does not require you to remember to take medication on a daily or weekly basis.
- Steady Dosage: BioTe Hormone Therapy delivers a steady, and predictable dose of hormones over the course of several months. This helps you avoid spikes & deficits caused by some other administrations like pills and creams.
- No “Forgetting”: Methods like pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections may produce good results, but they only work if you remember to take them, and even a small deviation from your dosing schedule could compromise your results.
Who Is a Candidate for Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Virtually anyone who is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy is a candidate for pellets. However, this administration method may be particularly suitable for patients with busy lifestyles who want to avoid adding daily hormone administration to their busy daily or weekly schedule.
BioTe patients frequently praise the enhanced quality of life they’re experiencing with BHRT. Weight loss, improved libido and sex drive, better sleep, and greater mental acuity are just a few of the benefits patients report to us.
