Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy for MEN

Issues of masculinity can be a sensitive topic when it comes to hormone replacement therapy. No man wants to hear that what makes him a man and feel masculine, are the testosterone he’s losing. In years past when men without hormone therapy experienced a physical decline or emotional changes, we assumed that it was just a mid-life crisis. Their doctors most often encouraged them to accept their plight because they weren’t ‘spring chickens’ anymore and did not refer them to a hormone replacement therapist. So things like hair loss, paunchiness, or erectile dysfunction were either not talked about or dismissed as something we don’t do anything about. Most men who don’t have hormone replacement therapy believe that they have to live through these symptoms as part of “aging.” We just had to live with it.

Hormonal needs for men have received national attention, but with marginal treatment options available. Hormone replacement therapy 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. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces the natural level of hormone that men need. This therapy is ideal for men wanting the benefits of bio-identical hormones, without the drawbacks of synthetics.

Andropause 
Andropause is the male version of menopause and can be treated with hormone replacement therapy. It is caused by a decline in hormone production. Surprisingly, every man begins a gradual drop in hormone production around age 30. He loses approximately one to two percent a year until sometime between 40 and 55 years of age, his testosterone levels fall sharply and signify the beginning of andropause.

When this happens, he often finds himself lacking in sexual drive, putting on weight, losing muscle mass and feeling sluggish, depressed and irritable. Yet most men believe they have to tough out these symptoms as part of “getting older.”

*NOTE: Some of these hormonal imbalance symptoms can be due to other causes as well, and should be evaluated by a physician.

Synthetics
Anabolic-androgenic steroid abuse among athletes and body builders has given a black eye to the many legitimate uses of testosterone replacement therapies. The negative press you’ve seen reporting the danger of these hormones is based solely on studies performed using pharmaceutical testosterone and anabolic steroids.

Enhanced sense of overall well-beingThe symptoms of andropause if not treated with hormone replacement therapy are very much like those of menopause. Men frequently experience anxiety, depression, mood swings, loss of eagerness and enthusiasm for daily life, decreased mental quickness and sharpness. With hormonal imbalance they also suffer from loss of libido, decreased sexual function and/or sensitivity, loss of mental focus, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, decreased energy, strength and endurance, prolonged recovery from exercise, no improvement with exercise, less desire for activity and exercise. Without pellet hormone therapy even more dangerous issues like an increase in body fat, weight gain, osteoporosis, loss of cardiac protection, lower good cholesterol and higher bad cholesterol can arise.Each man’s symptoms vary, as does the age at which those symptoms for hormone replacement therapy occur. Physicians are becoming more and more aware of andropause and beginning to scientifically diagnose it instead of simply offering a prescription that doesn’t address the basic problem.
