Most men consider hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or Hormone Pellet Therapy to be a woman-only concern. Nothing could be further from the truth. Testosterone levels in men peak about the age of twenty. When you enter the third decade of life you may begin to notice the inevitable changes in your body that occur during the aging process.
Low testosterone can cause a host of symptoms such as:
- Reduced Muscle Mass
- Weight management Issues
- Sleep Deprivation
- Loss of Focus
- Loss of Motivation
- Increased Body Fat
- Decreased Bone Density Among Others
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.
What Is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Considered the standard of care by board certified physicians across the U.S. and five continents, hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice. Created from yams or soybeans, each pellet contains pure, pharmaceutical-grade testosterone or estradiol, calibrated to each individual. These hormones are bio-identical, which means that they function in your body exactly the same way as the hormones that your body produces.
When doing hormone pellet therapy for men, it may require a local anesthetic to insert the hormone pellets under the skin in the hips of buttock so that the body can absorb them over time. It’s a virtually painless process—most compare it to receiving a shot or quick injection—that allows you to go up to four to six months between treatments.
