What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Men?
Hormone Pellet Therapy for Men is a method of delivering a steady and sustainable level of testosterone. Pellets, about the size of a grain of cooked rice, are typically inserted in the upper part of the buttocks just under the skin, or the flanks (love handles). This is done during a simple in-office procedure. Depending upon the patient, testosterone pellets typically last for five to six months before re-pelleting is required. The pellets, which contain customized levels of testosterone, are slowly metabolized. This slow, constant release of bioidentical hormones is similar to the way that the body’s natural hormones are secreted.
Testosterone Pellet Therapy for Men Benefits
What are some of the many benefits of testosterone pellet therapy for men? Our male patients report the following benefits received through hormone balancing with testosterone pellet therapy:
- Enhanced libido and sexual desire
- Decrease in body fat
- Increase in muscle mass
- Improved memory and mental clarity
- Increased sense of well-being
- Reduced fatigue…More energy
- Relief from anxiety and depression
Patients can typically expect multiple benefits to hormone pellets over more traditional hormone therapies, such as testosterone injections and creams. In studies that compare other methods of hormone replacement therapy, hormone pellets have been shown to be superior in relieving symptoms of hormone imbalance. Patients who previously failed to get relief from other hormone therapies have a very high success rate with pellets.
Another benefit of testosterone pellet therapy is the use of bioidentical testosterone. This means that the testosterone in the pellets are structurally the same as the hormones that your body produces naturally. Additionally, these hormones are naturally sourced, as they are derived from plants. This suggests that the hormones used in BHRT pellet therapy for men are more natural and may have fewer negative interactions within the body. Also, since the pellets are within the body delivering a more natural steady flow of hormones, you do not get ups and downs of symptom relief associated with injections and creams. And finally, there is no other method of hormone delivery that is as convenient for the patient, as pellets last for months before treatment is again needed.
