Have you ever encountered a senior citizen that is warm, vibrant, and so full of life for their age? Their story may not be one they experienced since they became older. You may be shocked to learn that the same person was unhappy, unloving, and incapable of emotional stability for years. The common denominator for people full of life is balanced hormones and a stable treatment plan to replace hormones.
Frequent questions about hormonal pellets.
Are they popular in the United States?
You are not alone in regards to unawareness about pellet hormone replacement therapy. Pellets do not have a patent in the United States and are not as marketed as they are in the UK. They are more common in Australia and Europe, but still have widespread use in the US. They have a history of about eight decades in the country and are the foundation for breast cancer cases.
Are there different types of pellets?
There are two major categories for the hormone pellet therapy process:
- Estrogen pellets
- Testosterone pellets
Estrogen pellets are small and have the main components of estradiol, which is a form of estrogen. They are excellent for relieving emotional, reproductive, and non-reproductive pains. The most common use for estrogen pelleted hormone therapy is to address aging symptoms.
Testosterone pellets relieve many different health problems, including emotional imbalances like anxiety, low libido, weight gain, and low moods.
Are there allergic reactions to hormone replacement pellets?
It is rare for a patient to develop allergic reactions. The most common response for rare cases is redness and itching at the point of entry. They are, however, consistently safe formula for all kinds of body discomforts.
It is essential that we address the most common theories of allergic reactions – testosterone side effects. Unlike popular myths, it is unlikely that women grow facial hair or male-like genital features. The highest amounts of testosterone will only lower the voice for as long as one is one medication.
There is no study to back the myth that testosterone causes cancer in men. It has consistently positive results, such as increased bone tissue and enough blood to allow donation.
Do men always need testosterone pellets?
Testosterone decline starts when men reach their early 30s. Most main will benefit from the therapy when they reach their mid-40s. Signs of testosterone deficiency are enough to substantiate the need for treatment. These usually include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Bone loss
- Difficulty sleeping
- Mental decline
Will I need progesterone therapy?
Women who undergo testosterone bioidentical hormone pellet therapy do not need progesterone therapy. The primary function of the hormone is to prevent proliferation, which occurs when one takes estrogen therapy. Testosterone therapy only needs progesterone therapy when one develops insomnia or anxiety.
What is the cost of hormone replacement pellets?
The cost of inserting pellets is approximately $500 for women and $1000 for men in the general market – men need a higher testosterone dose.
