Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has become a widely accepted and commonplace treatment for various ailments and conditions, particularly among female patients. But did you know that one of the most effective ways of introducing replacement hormones into the body is through tiny pellets?

HRT using pellets to deliver hormones to the body is often used in the context of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Pellet therapy involves the insertion of small pellets, typically composed of custom-compounded hormones, under the skin. These pellets slowly release hormones into the bloodstream, providing a consistent and sustained level of hormones over time. 

Here are some of the key points to consider about hormone replacement therapy using pellets:

Bioidentical hormones:
The hormones used in pellet therapy are often bioidentical, meaning they are chemically identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body. Bioidentical hormone therapy aims to replicate the body's natural hormone levels more closely compared to synthetic hormones.
Customized treatment:
Pellet therapy allows for the customization of hormone dosages based on an individual's specific hormone needs, as determined through comprehensive testing and evaluation of hormone levels.
Consistent hormone levels:
Pellet therapy provides a steady release of hormones into the bloodstream, maintaining more consistent hormone levels compared to other forms of hormone administration, such as pills or creams.
Symptom relief:
Hormone replacement therapy using pellets can help alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances, such as hot flashes, mood swings, decreased libido, and fatigue, among others.
Longevity of treatment:
Depending on the specific formulation and individual response, pellet therapy can provide hormone balance for several months, typically ranging from three to six months.
Individual response and monitoring:
Individual responses to pellet therapy can vary, and regular monitoring of hormone levels is essential to ensure optimal dosing and symptom management. Adjustments to the treatment plan may be necessary based on individual needs and hormone levels.

While hormone replacement therapy using pellets can offer benefits for women experiencing symptoms related to hormonal imbalances, it is essential to consult a healthcare provider like Age Rejuvenation that specializes in hormone therapy for proper evaluation, treatment planning, and ongoing management.
