Why Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bio-identical hormones have the exact same chemical structure as hormones that are made by the human body. The difference between bio-identical hormones versus synthetic non-bio-identical hormones is in the molecular structure (shape) of the hormone.
In order for a replacement hormone to fully replicate the function of the hormone naturally produced in our bodies, the chemical structure must exactly match the original. It is the structural differences that exist between bio-identical and non-bio-identical hormones that are responsible for side effects and health risks that occur when humans use non-bio-identical hormones.
Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy
There are several different ways to treat low testosterone; however, testosterone pellets are the ideal treatment for low testosterone since they provide a patient with a constant level of available testosterone sufficient to meet his/her optimal needs. Testosterone gels have issues with absorption and available levels being inconsistent throughout the day. Injections have issues with spiking peaks and valleys in hormone availability. Oral testosterone supplementation is not a viable option as it gets metabolized in the liver before it gets to the blood stream.
That is why we recommend using bio-identical hormone pellets. The therapy involves placing time-release pellets of approved bio-identical hormones in the fat under our skin to deliver more optimal hormone levels directly into the bloodstream. Testosterone pellet therapy has been used in the United States since 1939 and unlike other treatment options, pellet therapy provides a steady supply of testosterone in a form that is molecularly identical to that which your body produces. This results in the hormone’s normal effects being restored and alleviates many of the symptoms caused by decreased production of hormones.
Testosterone replacement therapy is ongoing. For women, pellet insertions are typically 4 times a year or every 3 months. Insertions for men are typically 3 times a year or every 4 months.
