Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy: FAQs

At Prosperity Health in Canton, MI we offer a safe, natural and truly superior method of hormone replacement in the form of BioTE® pellet therapy.

In this article, Canton, MI board certified Internist Dr. Nishath Hakim, MD answers patients’ most frequently asked questions about hormone replacement pellet therapy.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The health and wellness of the human body is regulated largely by hormones. For that reason, hormonal imbalances and decreases in hormone production can have serious ramifications for a person’s heath, putting them at risk for a great number of health problems.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is used to counteract the patient’s hormone imbalance by replenishing the body’s missing hormones, allowing it to resume functioning healthily.

What Does “BioIdentical” Hormone Replacement Mean?

The hormones used in bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy are bioidentical in nature, which means that, structurally, they are identical to normal human hormones that occur naturally within the body.

In addition to being chemically identical to human hormones, BioTE® hormone replacement therapy pellets are completely natural. Rather than being synthesized in a lab, we treat our Canton, MI patients exclusively with hormone replacement therapy pellets derived from natural plant or animal sources.

Naturally restoring balance to the patient’s hormones can treat a wide variety of conditions and dramatically improve patients’ quality of life.

How are Pellets Used in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy is a quick and simple procedure performed in our Bloomfield Hills or Canton, MI office. All-natural pellets are placed directly beneath the skin, to offer patients relief from a wide variety of symptoms that are caused by hormone imbalance.

Once placed beneath the skin, these time-released pellets emit incremental amounts of estrogen, and/or testosterone into the body. Over time, this will cause the depleted hormones to be replaced in the patient’s body, where they will maintain a consistent, healthy balance.

Other types of hormone replacement therapy treatments (such as pills and creams) provide patients with inconsistent delivery of hormones – and therefore erratic and unreliable relief from symptoms. But under-the-skin, time-released pellets yields constant, consistent, and balanced delivery of the hormones the body requires. By placing their hormone replacement pellets beneath the skin, our Canton, MI patients are able to avoid the rollercoaster effect of pills and creams that only deliver hormones in spurts.
