Testosterone Booster via Pellet Therapy for Measurable Results
Testosterone is very important for both men and women. As we age, our natural levels decline and we may need a testosterone booster. There are significant benefits of testosterone replacement and optimization.
- improvement of energy
- improved overall vitality
- sharpened brain function and memory
- reduction in depression and anxiety
- increase in motivation and drive
- increased libido
- improved symptoms of erectile dysfunction
- increased fat loss
- increase in muscle mass
- decreased blood pressure
- improved bone health
- reduced risk for Alzheimers
- reduced risk for prostate cancer
So how is testosterone optimization achieved?
While some physicians order labs to evaluate testosterone levels, the reference ranges for “normal” levels are very large and result in many patients being advised that their levels are “normal”. However, this does not mean they are optimal for the patient who is still symptomatic of low testosterone levels. In other words, your lab results may reflect a “normal” testosterone level, but your symptoms may not resolve until a higher level of testosterone in the “normal” range is achieved. This is optimization.
We are excited to announce that we are now offering testosterone pellet therapy for women and testosterone pellet therapy for men. Both are a form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that’s been increasing in popularity over the last few years. Pellet therapy has actually been around since the 1930s but was not FDA approved until 2008. Pellets can provide a more consistent dose of testosterone over a longer period of time. It can eliminate having to remember to use a messy, daily, transferable cream, or to apply a new patch frequently, or to inject yourself once or twice a week, which can be a painful hassle.
Testosterone pellets are bio-identical, not synthetic, meaning they are identical to your body’s hormone structure. They are cost effective and doses are individually customized based on your needs. Pellets are very convenient because the effects typically last for 3-4 months. They are very small in size and are made at a sterile compounding pharmacy. As the name suggests, a testosterone pellet insert is inserted into the fatty tissue of the hip using a local anesthetic. The procedure is done in the office. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, is relatively painless, and no stitches are required. Labs are checked prior to dosing and insertion, as well as periodically thereafter to assure desired levels are achieved.
