Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Men
Testosterone levels begin to decline in men beginning in their early 30’s. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido and difficulty achieving and or sustaining an erection. It is never too late to benefit from hormone therapy. Pellet therapy achieves the sustained levels of testosterone that would be produced by normally functioning testes. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces and sustains optimal levels of hormone that men need. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, pellet therapy is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic. Moreover, many studies show “optimal” testosterone levels over 800 in men, may have preventative effects for many disease states such as cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, prostate cancer, osteoporosis and more.
Typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy have the potential for “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Pellets produce a more steady state hormone level in the blood stream.
