What is Thyroid DiseaseYour thyroid creates and produces hormones that play a role in many different systems throughout your body, specifically your metabolism. Thyroid disease is when your thyroid makes either too much or too little of these important hormones. There are several different types of thyroid disease, including hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroiditis and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Thyroid disease can affect men and women. It can be present at birth (typically hypothyroidism), and it can develop as you age (often after menopause in women). Women are eight times more likely to develop thyroid disorders than men, although thyroid disorders are becoming increasingly common for men as well. A fact that is commonly overlooked by mainstream medical professionals, is that the loss of testosterone and estrogen as we age is intricately connected to thyroid problems. It naturally follows that treating patients with bioidentical hormones goes hand in hand with restoring proper thyroid function.

BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT) PELLETS

BHRT PelletAt Optimal Bio, pellets are the preferred method of hormone replacement delivery. Over the years, Optimal Bio has worked with compounding pharmaceutical companies to produce the purest pellets possible. Small pellets, roughly the size of a grain of rice, are placed in fatty tissue of the buttocks or lower back area. The pellets can deliver a dose of either testosterone for men, or testosterone/estrogen for women. Additionally, each pellet implant lasts for several months and provides a substantial and stable release of hormones into the body.
