On top of improving low estrogen or testosterone levels, BHRT pellets can improve conditions such as insulin resistance, adrenal disorders, thyroid problems, and osteoporosis.
These hormone pellets are inserted in a simple, nearly painless procedure that takes less than 5 minutes right in our office in Brentwood, TN. Over time, the pellets are absorbed into your body while releasing an even spread of measured hormones.
Pellets are only inserted 3-4 times per year, which is a considerable advantage over pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections which require more frequent attention. Additionally, pellets provide a more constant and steady supply of hormones than other treatments, especially topical solutions that can vary by formula type.
Pellets have another advantage, in that the hormones they release don’t pass through the liver. As a result, they come with a lower risk of blood clotting and other dangerous side effects.
Some side effects are still possible. For instance, some patients may experience tenderness in their breasts or unwanted hair growth. If you notice any of these side effects, talk to your doctor and they can adjust your treatment accordingly.
