Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is an individualized approach that identifies a person's exact hormone levels using lab testing and a questionnaire which determines what hormones are needed to balance their deficiency. Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones created naturally in the body. These hormones, usually estradiol or testosterone, are then used to compound fused pellet implants.

Pellet insertion is a simple in-office procedure that is done under local anesthesia. They are inserted subcutaneously. Patients cannot feel the implants. The implants consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones.

Pellet therapy is more convenient that remembering to use a cream or take a pill every day. It also ensures more consistent hormone levels. Just have the implant inserted once every 3-5 months and see the benefits!

Benefits of pellet therapy in both men and women:

  • Validated by over 70 years worth of research
  • Delivers consistent, physiologic levels of hormones
  • Maintains and improves bone density
  • Bypasses the liver and does not interfere with clotting factors, blood pressure, lipids, glucose, or liver function.

Pellet implants have been shown to improve:

  • Cardiovascular health
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Joint aches and pains
  • Mood and depression
  • Sex drive and libido

Frequent Questions About Pellet Therapy

How long do BHRT pellets last?
Pellet implants usually last between 3-5 months and need to be inserted 2-4 times per year depending on how fast the hormones are metabolized.

Are there any side effects?
Occasionally, minor bleeding or bruising may occur. Very rarely, infection and pellet extrusion has been known to occur.

How do I know what hormones I needs?
Patients will have hormone testing done to determine their personal hormone profile. Dr. Lentz will then recommend a hormone replacement plan based on individual results.

How are hormones monitored during therapy?
Hormone levels are measured initially at the start of therapy to determine patients' needs. Then, the patients response is monitored by periodic retesting. As the individual needs and response are determined, testing becomes less frequent.

Can patients be allergic to implants?
Patients very rarely develop a local area of redness and itching at the site of implant. There is minimal to no tenderness with no other signs of infection. Most often, patients who develop the reaction have low cortisol levels and be tested for adrenal insufficiency.

How much does it cost?
The cost varies depending on the dose of hormone and number of pellets needed. Men need larger doses so the cost is higher.
