Hormone Pellet Therapy
Hormones are chemicals made by the glands that act to control certain actions of cells and organs. In essence, hormones regulate your body’s functions and keep things running smoothly. However, these hormones can become imbalanced or deficient in a condition known as hormone imbalance.
Hormone replacement therapy is one type of treatment designed to correct this problem, but not all forms are created equally. BioTE® hormone pellet therapy goes above and beyond in the treatment of hormone imbalance to provide the best results.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment created to address hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalance occurs when one or more of the body’s key hormones is deficient or otherwise not at its optimal production level. This issue can occur in men and women.
Symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:
- Extreme fatigue
- Mood swings
- Tension and irritability
- Lack of sleep
- Memory loss
- Lack of focus
- Brain fog
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Weight gain
- Joint pain
- Migraines and severe headaches
- Bladder symptoms
- Decreased sex drive and performance
Hormonal imbalance also seriously affects bone health, breast health, brain health, heart health and other critical systems in the body. Hormonal imbalance has a frightening mix of both tangible and intangible symptoms; some you may notice immediately, and others mask themselves and occur behind the scenes.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy Work?
Hormone pellet therapy works by steadily replacing and rebalancing the missing hormones in the body. Hormone pellet therapy has been used since 1939. There are other types of hormone replacement, including:
- Synthetic injections
Hormone pellet therapy has several advantages over these other methods. These benefits include:
- It has the same molecular structure as human hormones
- It lasts longer than other treatments, typically around three to five months
- It’s the most widely studied form of natural hormone therapy
- It provides a steady stream of hormones in your blood
- It provides individualized dosing
- It’s inserted under the skin
