HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Hormone pellet therapy
is a treatment for replacing or regulating hormones in males and females, either with forms of estrogen or testosterone or with a combination of hormones. Compounded hormones are a mixture of hormones that a pharmacy or laboratory creates specifically for an individual.
Hormone pellets are implants that are inserted under the skin. They release hormones called bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones come from plants and are similar to the hormones that the human body produces.
Bioidentical compounded hormones may include estradiol, estrone, dehydroepiandrosterone, and testosterone.
