Kohll’s Preventative Medical Clinic is now offering Bio-Identical Hormone pellets. Hormone Pellet therapy is a highly effective form of BHRT which is based on prescribing the right kind of hormone (biologically identical), in the correct amounts (determined through proper testing and proper analysis of the results), using the right delivery system (pellets). Bio Identical hormones are natural, plant derived compounds that have the same molecular structure as those made by the human body. Unlike synthetics, our bodies can readily recognize and metabolize bio-identical hormones. It may surprise you to know that bio-identical pellets have been used sucessfully by patients throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States since the 1930’s. Study after study has shown that, when prescribed and administered correctly, bio-identical pellets can benefit a variety of conditions- including depression, weight gain, and osteoporosis.
Pellets are the only hormone therapy that gives you balanced hormones, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for three to six months, or even longer. Other bio identical delivery methods- i.e. the creams, pills, injections, and even micronized capsules- cannot provide a steady stream of hormone in your bloodstream 24/7. That means you may still experience unstable hormone levels until properly corrected for ultimate compliance. And even though patches do provide a constant stream of hormones, they have to be changed often. And then there is the sticky adhesive issue to deal with!

Who is a Candidate for Bio-Identical Testosterone Pellet Therapy?
For those requiring testosterone supplementation, there are very few people who would not be able to qualify for pellet therapy. Pellet testosterone replacement therapy is best for men and women who prefer the superior consistency and exceptional convenience of the pellet delivery method. Testosterone pellet therapy lasts 3-5 months in women and 5-6 months in men. Treatment is based upon lab results, which help determine how much testosterone supplementation will be needed to restore hormone levels. Treatment is so safe, that even in women with a history of breast cancer, or men with a history of prostate cancer, testosterone can reliably be used. We do require a medical oncologist and/or urologist to agree with the use of testosterone in patients with such a history. If this is a concern, call our office for more information or to see if you are an eligible candidate for therapy.
What are hormone pellets made of?
They are derived from soybeans and are biologically identical to human forms of estradiol and testosterone. There is also a small amount of magnesium stearate added to the prepelletized powder to help it flow better during the pellet making process. The pellets are completely biodegradable under the skin leaving no residue whatsoever.
