Hormone pellet therapy has been effectively prescribed since the 1930's. However, FDA approval of bio-identical testosterone pellet therapy wasn't granted until 2008 and was designed exclusively for men. As it became popular for the ease and effectiveness of the delivery method for testosterone, both men and women have enjoyed the benefits of better health. In women testosterone pellet therapy is used to treat migraines and menstrual headaches. It has also been proven to be an effective treatment for vaginal dryness, bladder control, and urinary frequency. In men and women testosterone benefits energy, mood, memory, sex drive, bone density, muscle strength, and decreases fat mass. We all need adequate levels of testosterone for optimal mental and physical health, as well as helping to prevent diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s which are generally associated with low testosterone levels.
Bio-Identical hormone replacement therapy using the pellet hormone therapy method has changed the way women age and has improved the quality of their lives. As estrogen and testosterone levels decrease as we age, it affects multiple aspects of life as these hormones help women manage their emotions, weight, bone density, sleep patterns, anxiety, and irritability. As testosterone is the hormone that affects sex drive and arousal, with low levels, women may simply lose their interest in sex. Bio-identical hormones are engineered to match the naturally produced hormones estrogen and testosterone in a woman’s body and restore normal hormone levels. In addition, studies have shown bio-identical hormones to be highly preventative to breast cancer and osteoporosis.
Bio-identical pellet insertion is a simple in-office procedure. Your doctor applies local anesthesia and make a tiny incision in the upper hip area in the fatty area under the skin. It closely mimics the actions of healthy ovaries with normal hormone release into the bloodstream. About the size of a grain of rice it does not require any stitches and is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to 4 months.
Testosterone levels in men begin to decline in their early 30’s. Most men should be tested around 45 years of age. Symptoms of deficiency in men include fatigue, mental loss, muscle mass, and sex drive. In many cases it affects the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Low testosterone is among the most common issues facing the aging male. Fortunately it is never too late to receive benefits from hormone therapy.
Pellet hormone therapy achieves the normal sustained levels of testosterone produced by testicles in men. It is an ideal therapy for men desiring the benefits of a natural hormone without the draw backs of a synthetic product. Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only natural testosterone therapy that releases sustained and consistent levels throughout the day up to 6 months. In addition, studies consistently show optimal testosterone levels in men have preventative effects for many diseases including cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer, and osteoporosis.
