The use of high quality bio-identical hormone pellets, combined with accurate dosing and the proper pellet insertion method are fundamental to the safety and effectiveness of SottoPelle® Therapy.
The pellets we use have been made the same way by the same highly-respected pharmacy for more than 45 years. In fact, the success of our treatment depends in large part upon their expertise. The precision process they employ results in superior quality pellets every time; pellets that can perform reliably week after week, month after month. This ensures that each and every patient receives the full benefit of a steady, accurate hormone dose for 3 to 6 months or longer.
Don’t let the words hormone replacement therapy scare you. This isn’t about synthetic pharmaceuticals or even natural hormones found in plants used in other forms of hormone therapy. This is about the hormones estrogen and testosterone that are 100 percent identical to those created by the human body. Yes, they are made from botanicals, but compounded to precisely match the molecular structure of human hormone for hormone replacement therapy.
For decades men and women have experienced the astounding benefits of this form of hormone replacement therapy. In study after study, researchers have reported how the use of biologically identical estrogen and testosterone in bio-identical pellet hormone replacement therapy has positively impacted diseases such as osteoporosis, prostate cancer and HIV.
Both estradiol and testosterone have been regulated by the FDA for human use. Each lot of hormone pellets contains pure hormone (99.89%) and a human fatty acid (0.2%) to bind them together (unlike other pellets that use synthetic fillers). The hormones are individually pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders or “pellets.” Estradiol pellets are a little bigger than a grain of rice—approximately 3 millimeters in diameter. Testosterone pellets are larger than estradiol pellets.
