Why SottoPelle® Method Hormone Therapy Pellet Training?
Physicians are now realizing that for effectiveness, safety, convenience, and consistency bioidentical hormone pellets are truly the most effective hormone replacement delivery method.
In addition to being 100% natural, bioidentical hormone pellets are “one and done” – lasting up to three months in female patients and up to six months in male patients with a single insertion. And because there are no pills to refill or remember to take, no painful shots, and no patches that fall off and need to be replaced, physicians can rest easy knowing that patient errors in hormone usage are virtually eliminated.
But the advantages of the SottoPelle® Method hormone replacement pellets go far beyond just convenience, consistency and patient compliance. Physician hormone replacement pellet training enables medical providers to offer their patients the most individualized and conservative dosages possible – ensuring the most effective results with the fewest side effects.
Hormone Therapy Pellet Training: Individualized Dosing
Bio-identical hormones pellets offer the best opportunity for physicians to individualize patient hormone replacement. While hormone pills are a standard one-size-fits all dosage, hormone pellets are individually dosed and compounded for each patient’s unique hormone replacement needs.
SottoPelle physician hormone therapy training teaches the provider to identify individual patient hormone levels and deficiencies through very thorough blood testing and extensive lab work. This may include FSH, estrogen/estradiol, and testosterone (free and total) testing for women. Men may be tested for PSA (prostate specific antigen), sensitive estradiol, testosterone, LH, and more prior to starting hormone pellet therapy. Thyroid hormone levels (TSH) may also be evaluated in men and women.
SottoPelle® takes the guesswork out of hormone dosing calculation for physicians with the proprietary Dosaggio™ online dosing application. Dosaggio™ is the ultimate tool for hormone dosing calculation, built on a HIPAA compliant framework that allows physicians to input a minimal set of relevant patient information and receive a suggested, individualized dose. This is why many patients who have failed to find relief with other types of hormone therapy have experienced success with hormone pellets administered using the SottoPelle Method.
Hormone Therapy Pellet Training: Conservative Dosing
Recent research has unequivocally shown that bioidentical hormones – when administered at the proper dosages – offer health benefits that far outweigh negative side-effects for most patients. However, too much of anything is never a good thing – and hormones are no exception. That is why the most conservative dosing possible is ideal – precisely replacing missing essential hormones without over-dosing – to avoid unwanted side-effects.
SottoPelle® pellet trained physicians no longer have to ‘guess’ or ‘estimate’ the lowest effect dose, thanks to the proprietary Dosaggio™ online dosing application. Dosaggio™ allows physicians to input a minimal set of relevant patient information and receive a conservative, precise, and individualized dose.
The Dosaggio™ proprietary algorithm and on-screen clinical guidance enable physicians to prescribe the most conservative hormone therapy dose that is still effective in alleviating patient symptoms and optimizing patient health. This conservative hormone therapy dosing makes SottoPelle® Method pellet administration the safest form of long-term testosterone replacement therapy and long-term treatment of perimenopause and menopause symptoms.
Hormone Therapy Pellet Training: Consistent Dosing
Subcutaneous pellets are the best choice when it comes to allowing a steady delivery of hormones. Hormone pellets are tiny implants, placed under the skin, that continuously release small, physiologic doses of hormones – just like the body does – consistently and constantly, as the patient needs them.
The pellet implants are made up of hormones (such as estrogen and testosterone) that are pressed or fused into very small, solid cylinders that are smaller than a grain of rice. Once inserted under the skin, they deliver hormones for up to three months in woman and up to six months in men.
Pellets are a superior method of hormone replacement deliver because they avoid the roller coaster “up and down” hormone “surges” that occur throughout the day with once-daily pills that wear off over 24 hours. Pellets also eliminate the delivery inconsistences that can occur when patients forget to take pills, or take them at irregular or incorrect intervals.
