Hormone Replacement for Men
As we age, testosterone production naturally declines. Starting at around age 35, men generally experience a gradual reduction in testosterone, typically 2 to 10 percent per year, but this decrease can vary widely among individuals.
- Low testosterone in men often leads to:
- Fatigue, lethargy and lack of motivation
- Mood swings, anxiety & depression
- Inability to focus and decline in memory
- Saggy, dry, aging skin
- Aches, joint pain and longer recovery time from injuries
- Loss of libido and inability to achieve or maintain an erection
The symptoms of Male Hormone Imbalance tend to come on gradually and are often ignored, under-treated, or even misdiagnosed.
How Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men works
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) uses hormone pellets to replicate your body’s normal testosterone levels and improve your overall health. With hormone pellets, bioidentical testosterone is released into the bloodstream and absorbed based on the body’s needs. Unlike conventional synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to those produced by your body.
The hormone pellet dosing is customized to your needs so that you get the treatment that’s right for you. Proper hormone levels are determined individually for each patient using a comprehensive blood work analysis. The pellet implants are placed under the skin and consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones directly into the bloodstream, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for up to 5 months.
Primary benefits of HRT
Studies have shown that optimized hormones can significantly improve serious health problems including osteoporosis, cholesterol abnormalities, metabolic syndrome, and Type II diabetes. Those who have used the therapy have reported increases in energy, weight loss, and improved libido and mental focus.
