Most men consider hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to be something only women are concerned with. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. A man’s testosterone level peaks at around twenty and steadily declines every year after. By the time you are in your thirties you may begin to notice the many inevitable changes in your body resulting from your declining testosterone levels.
Low testosterone can cause a myriad of symptoms such as:
You may feel less active, less attractive, and less interested in intimacy with your partner. Left unaddressed, these symptoms can increase throughout your forties and fifties, stealing your self-confidence and sense of achievement in your personal and professional life.
However, thanks to medical advances and breakthroughs, we now have a better understanding of why our bodies do what they do as we naturally age. While it’s comforting to know that you do have options to combat the unwanted and often debilitating effects of the aging process, you may have concerns that standard hormone replacement therapy will make you feel worse rather than better. If so, then you may want to consider Testosterone Replacement Therapy using Pellet Therapy.
One of the best ways to introduce bio-identical hormones to the body is with the use of pellets. Pellets are about the size of a grain of rice, derived from yams, roots, and other natural resources, which are then compounded into a pellet. Pellets are bio-identical which means that they mimic the natural molecular structure of hormones already found in the body, such as testosterone and estradiol.
Pellet insertion is a simple in office procedure where the hormones are inserted under the skin into the the hip or buttock region. Although it is a relatively painless procedure, a local anesthetic is available and most compare it to receiving a shot or injection. Pellets are absorbed by the body at a controlled rate which allows them to remain active in the body for up to six months. Since they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and are always readily available for the body to use, the hormone levels remain within the optimal range for the entirety of the insertion.
Once the pellets are implanted, patients quickly begin to feel relief from their symptoms: their energy levels increase and they become more emotionally stable. All of the symptoms that brought you to need hormone therapy will reside and a renewed sense of well being and satisfaction is achieved. However, once the pellets are completely absorbed symptoms will return, so routine insertions are necessary.
