Balancing and optimizing your hormones can take some time. However, most of our patients report experiencing relief of symptoms within the first 2-6 months of therapy. Remember – this is a process. You only have one body, so we ensure that we treat it correctly with close medical monitoring.
Your pellet implant is quick and simple. The pellets are inserted in the flank area on the back of your hip after being numbed. You can expect to update your health management plan and have labs drawn every 90 days. You can expect our medical team to review those labs and dose you specifically every 90 days. Our appointments will always be a minimum of 30 minutes, or can be longer if our team needs more detailed evaluation to uncover signs and stresses that might be affecting you hormonally. We believe hormones require empirical and personally relevant information to achieve the outcome our patients are seeking.
At Carolina Hormone & Health, your levels will be monitored every 3 months for females and every 4 months for males. With this level of monitoring, changes and issues can be addressed quickly and effectively. We also follow much stricter monitoring and testing for patients that may be considered high risk.
Primary care physicians are working under strict protocols and are not set up to monitor and treat within therapeutic ranges. Instead, primary physicians place their focus treating a disease, not overall wellness. Including specialist services, like hormone therapy from Carolina Hormone and Health, can fill in those gaps in care. We monitor your levels and work to correct hormone imbalances that help keep you from a disease state.
