It was only a few years ago that I was working with a long-time patient and they said, "I just got hormone pellets."

Well, what did that mean exactly? Hormone pellets in Amarillo, TX? While I had never heard of hormone replacement and hormone pellets, Hormone balancing has been around for a long time. However, the idea of pellets rather than gels and injections was a brand new concept for me. Men commonly look at it for testosterone replacement while women do very well after a hysterectomy or menopause. 

Our hormones are fundamental to everyday life, and changes in their balance require special management, whether it be due to a medical condition or a specific stage of life. As men and women age, hormone levels naturally decline. That goes for testosterone, estrogen, and others.

This isn't a misfortune only afflicting the aging population though. People as early as those in their 20s and beyond can begin showing hormone decreases.

Some of the signs of needing hormone balancing can be the following:


  • A lack of libido

  • Unexplained weight gain or loss

  • Abnormal pain

  • Poor sleep

  • Brittle or weak bones

  • Changes in sensitivity to cold and heat

  • Very dry skin or rashes

  • Headaches

  • Long-term fatigue with no reason for it

  • Unexplained or excessive sweating
