Men begin losing testosterone at a rate of 3% to 10% per year beginning at age 30. Current medical research now defines a male equivalent to menopause as andropause. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, it is ideal for men who want the benefits of a bio-identical hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection.
Why bio-identical hormone pellet therapy for men? 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 four to six months without any “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient.
We have had excellent results treating men with bio-identical hormone therapy. There have been only a few reported side effects, which are all minor and treatable.
