What are Hormone Pellets?
The Hormone pellets used at Trimcare, are about the size of a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue below the skin and most closely imitate the actions of both male and female systems with regards to hormone release into the bloodstream.
Hormone Pellets basically contain blends of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone utilized in the pellets that we use in the clinic.
The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in the office and under 30 minutes.
Effectiveness of Hormone Pellet Therapy?
The goal of Pellet Therapy is to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. At Trimcare we have been using Pellet bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants for years and have found that patients find it extremely effective. The small rice like implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing the optimal therapy for each individual.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of hormone therapy – which can produce a “roller coaster effect” on a person’s hormone levels, causing mood and energy fluctuations for the patient – we at Trimcare believe that Hormone Pellet Therapy is the best method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
Hormone Pellet Therapy for Men:
Male Testosterone levels begin to decline beginning in their early 30′s. Most men should be tested around 45 years of age. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include lack of mental acuity, fatigue, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining erection and it is never too late to benefit from a possible hormone therapy program.
Pellet Therapy for men will help any individual achieve the sustained levels of testosterone that would normally be produced by functioning testicles. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces the body’s natural level of hormone that men require. Moreover, many studies show optimal testosterone levels in men, have preventative effects for many disease states such as: prostate cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and many more.
Typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy produce “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Rollercoaster levels of hormones do not have the same long term benefits as steady state hormone in the bloodstream and that is why Pellet Therapy is untouchable in that regards.
Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women:
In various studies performed, when comparing conventional hormone replacement therapy, to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of many symptoms including: irritability, anxiety and mood swings repair of sleep patterns, menopausal symptoms, protection of bone density, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression and many others. Pellet therapy has also been shown to help treat the severity of migraine and menstrual headaches as well as helping with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency, to name a few. Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY PREVENTATIVE against breast cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and dementia, just to name a few.
What if my primary care physician has concerns about the safety and efficacy of pellet implants?
When it comes to your body and health it is all about a patient making an informed choice. Pellet therapy has been researched and developed since 1939 in the US and Europe, there is a myriad of data to support the ‘long term’ safety and efficacy of hormones delivered by pellet implants. Bio-identical hormone Pellet Therapy is currently being used safely in 5 continents and has been studied for 8 decades, not only looking at safety and efficacy of the therapy but also in the prevention of disease states such as breast cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, Type 2 diabetes and so many more.
There are hundreds of studies available to practitioners with regards to hormone pellet therapy, unfortunately most do not know where to find them nor take or have the time to research the studies. Knowledge is power in this regard, so if you have questions we at Trimcare encourage you to go out and do your own research if you are questionable on the subject.
