What are Testosterone Pellets?
Our Testosterone pellets are made of Bio-identical Hormones and are about the size of a grain of rice. They are an alternative method of BHRT or Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Most men and women need multiple pellets and some may need more than one type of hormone. They are surgically inserted into the hip area under the skin, where they slowly disperse the hormone over the period of 3-6 months. The surgery, performed by an experienced Doctor, takes about 15-20 minutes. A very small incision is made and seldom requires stitches. Most patients do not complain of pain although the area may become sensitive or sore. There is no down-time and our patients can return to the work the same day. It is recommended that they avoid strenuous exercise for a few days afterwards.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a prescription alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy Bioidentical medications are made from plants and changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what your body would naturally produce. Thus under a microscope, they look the same as what the body creates. BHRT is customized for each individual and their personal needs, adjusting dosages, strengths, and forms of hormones. Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy is not as flexible and has few options for dosages and strengths. The Bio-identical Hormones that we offer in pellet form are estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
What are the benefits with Pellets vs. Injections, Creams/Gels or Pills?
In comparison to Injections, Pellets only require a single, short procedure and can maintain elevated hormone levels for months. Injections require multiple office visits per month, sometimes weekly. We have noticed a similar success rate in comparing the two options, but pellets require much less time and are very convenient. Compared to Creams and Gels, we have found no comparison. The Creams and Gels that are often custom made has some form of success but we have seen a high failure rate. They are created to absorb into the skin, then into the blood stream. The problem is that the skin is made to be a barrier so that to keep out substances from entering the body. This is why many patients state that its success was marginal. It can also be a costly investment without the consistent return of health benefits. We may prescribe Creams or Gels if other options are not considered.
What is the benefit in choosing Vitality for BHRT?
Vitality specializes in BHRT and will customize an approach for your needs. Our Doctors have specific training in hormones and provide a high success rate for our patients. Additionally, we are able to take care of our patients within 1 week so you dont have to wait months to feel better. Another benefit is that we take care of our patients at a slower pace, spending more time with each person. Lastly, our pricing is fair. Vitality offers Hormone Pellets at a much lower price than most places in Arizona. Our fixed pricing is especially beneficial for those that have low levels and need a higher dosage to become balanced. We offer a BHRT consultation with a Doctor at only $65.
