The risks of taking hormone pellets outweigh its benefits.

There is a great appeal to the notion of specially-formulated hormone cocktail to reverse the signs and symptoms of age-related hormone decline. Hormone pellet therapy is one of the most effective in reversing the signs of aging, especially in women. Celebrities and influencers are just raving about its benefits for women going through menopause.

What is hormone pellet therapy?

One method of hormone therapy is hormone pellets, which makes use of a small pellet inserted under the skin. It is an effective delivery method that provides continuous release of a hormone to correct hormone imbalance.

However, Pellet therapy is associated with more side effects; as much as 6 times! The risks simply just outweigh the benefits. Are you willing to take the risk?

Although hormone pellets offer a great delivery system, it is usually associated with more side effects.

It was reported that pellet therapy with estradiol and/or testosterone caused as much as 6 times the number of side effects. This includes abnormal uterine bleeding and subsequent hysterectomy. Women who used hormone pellets also reported acne breakouts, crazy mood swings and anxiety, changes in hair patterns, and weight gain.

Another drawback with hormone pellets is dose adjustment. Once inserted, there is no way for your doctor to adjust the dose when needed, which is usually the case during therapy. This may lead to overdose or underdose, which is not a good thing either. With pellets, there is no way to adjust the dosage without surgical removal and reinsertion of the pellet, which is risky and invasive.

What alternatives to hormone pellet therapy are available?

Thankfully, there are alternatives to hormone pellets that are safer and more effective. We understand that hormone replacement therapy is not a “one size fits all” procedure. Hormones should be custom-tailored to each individual, since we all have different bodies, needs, and goals. Moreover, delivery methods should also be varied.

At NuLife Institute, we offer a wide array of alternatives to hormone pellet therapy.

Both men and women can benefit from hormone replacement therapy, as this is effective treatment option especially in menopausal women. It also helps in overcoming health issues related to age-related hormone decline. We prefer to offer hormones that come in the form of gels, creams, injections, and sublinguals as alternatives. These are much safer and have far less side effects than hormone pellets. With topical forms of hormone therapy such as gels and creams, dosage adjustment is much easier and non-invasive.
