Men begin losing testosterone at the rate of 1-3% per year beginning at age 30. Current medical research had defined the decline in hormones as andropause, the male equivalent to menopause. Testosterone is required for male sexual development, reproductive function, maintaining muscle mass, bone density and healthy red blood cell levels. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, mood changes, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining an erection.
With BHRT, testosterone can be balanced in the body with pellet therapy. Men who have been treated with bio-identical hormone therapy report an improved mood, better muscle building, weight loss, more energy, and increased sexual performance. Using testosterone replacement therapy has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke as well and has been reported to improve overall life quality.
Hormonal needs for men have received national attention, but with marginal treatment options available. Hormonal treatments for men can be expensive, require daily consumption, and in many cases, need to be carefully timed with their partner’s needs for normal sexual activities and pleasure. Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only method of testosterone therapy that gives sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day, for 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Treatment begins with a comprehensive lab panel to assess current hormone levels and devise a plan for your hormone treatment to effectively restore your hormonal balance. Once the pellet is inserted, the treatment can last up to three months without maintenance!
