Hormone Replacement Pellets

A correct balance of hormones is required to feel and look your best. Hormones influence most bodily functions, including immune function, appetite, libido, and even mood. With natural aging, many hormone levels decrease. By age 40, hormone decline can hinder quality of life and health. At RestoreMD we tailor treatment plans to meet your body’s needs, targeting your hormone levels to restore a healthy balance. This entails designing a customized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan. The proper balance of hormones can make you feel and look younger.

A common misconception is that the hormone testosterone is only vital to the health of men. But that is not true!  Testosterone is extremely important to the health of both men and women. It promotes healthy muscle mass, decreased fat, increased endurance, and enhanced psychological health.

Bioidentical hormones are different from traditional hormone replacement therapy.  Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to hormones produced by the human body. This differs from traditional hormone therapies, where the hormones are produced from synthetic means and are not chemically identical to bodily hormones.

At RestoreMD we provide bioidentical replacement therapy by using pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, so patients can have a consistent level of testosterone. This is an important and extremely beneficial distinction.  Some treatments, such as hormone injections and medications, only temporarily provide treatment. Pellets, on the other hand, are designed to be time-released, producing steady-state hormone levels on a continual basis. No more roller coaster of hormone levels.

Our patients experience decreased unwanted symptoms (such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, anxiety and mood swings), and increases in energy level, libido and sexual function.

What are hormone pellets?

Bio-identical hormone pellets commonly have testosterone and other hormones. These hormones are formed into pellets that are typically a little larger than a grain of rice.

Why pellets?

Pellets deliver consistent and constant healthy levels of hormones into the bloodstream. They avoid fluctuations of hormones, unlike patches, creams, and pills. Pellets typically last 3-4 months in females and 4-5 months in males.

How are pellets inserted?

The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure that takes place in our office. They are inserted by one of our well trained and qualified providers under the skin near the hip area.

What happens after pellet insertion?

Typically within 2-7 days, you will start to see your symptoms decrease. You will be asked to not do any vigorous exercise and to not immerse in water for at least 5 days. You may shower immediately after pellet insertion. Certain hormone labs will be ordered for you to have drawn in the next 4-6 weeks. Typically, females return in 3 months to have pellets re- inserted and males return in 4-5 months to have pellets re-inserted.
