What are the Risks of Having Imbalanced Hormones?
Balanced hormones are important to ensure good overall health and help prevent diseases in both men and women. Numerous studies have shown that hormone imbalances wreak havoc on the body, particularly during perimenopause, menopause and andropause.
While it is normal for men and women to experience some decline in health during these stages, having imbalanced hormones puts you at a greater risk for health problems.
Unbalanced hormones put you at increased risk for:
- Thyroid malfunction
- Memory loss
- Sleep disturbances
- Libido issues
- Sexual dysfunction
How Do You Know If You Have a Hormone Imbalance & What Level of Treatment is Necessary?
Before our providers prescribe any type of treatment plan, we start with a consultation and explain the hormone replacement therapy procedure using small bio-identical hormone pellets (the size of a grain of rice) that are placed in the fatty area of the upper buttocks.
After all of your questions are answered, a comprehensive bloodwork analysis and lab work will be ordered. Our providers can customize every patient’s dose, whether male or female, based on the individual bloodwork. This analysis tells them exactly which hormones are out of balance and to what degree. Once we have this analysis completed, our providers will speak to you about your customized bio-identical hormone replacement treatment plan.
How Do Hormone Replacement Pellets Correct Hormone Imbalance?
Connecticut Dermatology Group’s providers chose BioTE pellet hormone therapy because it uses natural hormone optimization to restore balance in your body. The pellets are comprised of natural plant sources from wild yams to replicate your body’s natural hormonal levels. Patients using this type of treatment have found it to be very effective because the pellet implant consistently releases small doses of hormones as the body needs it to provide optimal results.
Traditional forms of hormone imbalance therapy, such as pills, creams, patches or injections, tend to produce “roller coaster” hormone levels resulting in mood and energy fluctuations throughout the day or week. The pellet therapy provides sustained, consistent doses throughout the day for 3 – 4 months for women and approximately 6 months for men. Hormone pellets contain the same structure as your body’s natural hormone and have been used effectively since 1939.
What Makes Bio-Identical Pellet Therapy Better Than Other Forms of Hormone Replacement Treatment?
Pellet therapy is the best way to give your body sustained hormone treatment at the exact moment your body needs it. Synthetic methods have been proven to provide inconsistent results and require treatment either daily or weekly…highly inconvenient for your busy lifestyle!
Some of the benefits of bio-identical pellet therapy include:
- Bio-identical hormones mimic the hormones found naturally in your body
- Customized treatment plan and dose
- Hormones delivered directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
- Pellets last anywhere from 3-6 months
- Your body recognizes these hormones as identical to what is found in your body
- No “roller coaster” effect that results in fluctuating moods and energy
- Increased health benefits for bone, heart and brain health
- Hormone balance based on research not experimentation or guessing
What is Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?
The pellets used for hormone replacement therapy are smaller than a grain of rice and comprised of a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. They are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin in the upper buttocks and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream. Because these are pure hormones and identical to the hormones found naturally in your body, the pellets are not metabolized into byproducts by going through your liver, stomach or skin. This system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone at the right time.
