It is a well known fact that men and women experience declining hormone levels as they get older. These deficient hormone levels are associated with symptoms of fatigue, irritability, loss of memory, increased weight gain, insomnia, and decreased sex drive. There are also significant diseases associated with hormonal deficiencies, including osteoporosis.
Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. David Duffner and Certified Nurse Practitioner Patricia Ryan bring you BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy. BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to four to six months without any “roller coaster” effect as seen with oral and transdermal forms of hormonal therapy. Because the pellets are completely natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
How Hormone Therapy is introduced to the body is very important. Most of the common methods, such as pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections don’t contain natural, bio-identical hormones, and all provide inconsistent hormone levels. They may actually lead to greater health risks.
A more effective alternative is hormonal therapy using pellets that are easily placed under the skin, into the upper buttock. Pellets are bio-identical and individually dosed based on your age, symptoms, and medical history, weight, and laboratory values. The pellets safely achieve consistent hormone levels that maximize symptom relief and health benefits.
Hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is an effective method to deliver bio-identical hormones to both men and women. They consistently and gradually release small, physiologic doses of hormones thus providing optimal therapy. Pellets are made up of either estradiol or testosterone. These pellets are a little larger than a grain of rice and deliver individualized, healthy levels of hormones over an extended period of time. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with other methods of delivery. Pellets do not increase the risk of blood clots or stroke like conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
Pellets are far and away the most effective and safest way to deliver testosterone to men and women. Optimal testosterone levels are vital to good health and have been shown to increase energy, relieve depression, improve well-being, relieve anxiety, and improve memory and concentration. Testosterone, delivered by pellet implant, helps convert fat to lean muscle mass. Men and women need adequate levels of testosterone for optimal mental and physical health and for the prevention of chronic illnesses like osteoporosis.
