Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Men

It is not uncommon for many of our male patients ranging in age from 30 to well in their 60s to feel less vibrant and energetic than they once did. Beginning at 30 men produce less testosterone. The levels drop off dramatically around the age of 40-55. It is not unusual for men to report feeling less enthusiastic about love, sex and relationships; not seeking the frequency of interaction they once sought and just not as interested in engaging as they once did. It is not uncommon to report being less interested in things that once energized them such as sports, hobbies, romance and physical activity. These symptoms often come with a sense that something is missing.

Often times there is an assumption that loss of enthusiasm, lower energy and diminished sexual drive are just a normal function of aging. And as such something to accept and ‘get used to’ so to speak. And in fact, they are right. There is something missing. But incorrect in that what is missing does not have to just be accepted as part of the aging process. What is often missing is the optimal levels of testosterone which diminish with age. Commonly known as Low T. And there is something that can be done with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for men. The term “Bio-Identical,” as defined by experts from The Endocrine Society, is a compound that has exactly the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones that are produced in the human body.

Low T is treatable. The common symptoms are fairly evident and recognizable.

Symptoms

  • Lower energy and fatigue
  • Lower drive and initiative
  • Decreased libido and/or sexual performance
  • Decreased erectile function and frequency
  • Loss of lean muscle mass
  • Loss of strength
  • Increased abdominal fat
  • Decreased competitiveness
  • Changes in sleep pattern
  • Slower recovery from exercise and injury
  • Fogginess and loss of concentration
  • Memory loss

In addition, low testosterone has been associated with Osteoporosis linking it to a loss in bone density. It is also associated with loss of muscle mass. The appropriate testosterone treatment can not only increase bone density which reduces problems associated with Osteoporosis but it also increase lean muscle mass. Lean muscle mass in turn helps with weight reduction. There is an inverse relationship between testosterone levels and obesity. Testosterone helps men burn fat more efficiently.

Is BHRT a Good Option for Low Testosterone?

Left undiagnosed and untreated, low testosterone can change a man’s life in a wide range of areas from possible depression to loss of sexual function, change in body fat composition contributing to obesity and loss of mental acuity. Low T can negatively impact the lives of otherwise healthy men.

However, properly diagnosed, the appropriate testosterone treatment can result in an improved life style and a more vibrant youthful living experience for men who suffer from Low T. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men with testosterone that is identical to what the body produces on its own can reverse the adverse symptoms and restore the lifestyle of vitality and vigor. Supported with the proper nutrition, exercise and supplements, the positive impact to a man’s lifestyle can be life changing.

Men are living longer. The appropriate Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can often make the difference for men with low T between a vibrant energetic life and a lesser experience.

Key benefits include:

  • Improved libido and sexual performance
  • Increased drive and motivation
  • Improved mental acuity and clarity
  • Increase in lean muscle mass
  • Decreased body fat
  • Improved endurance for physical activity
  • Improved mood
  • Increased overall energy level
  • Stronger bones
  • Better quality of life

What Are Hormone Pellets?

Hormone replacement using pellet insertion has been practiced for more than 70 years. Small pellets roughly the size of a grain of rice are inserted in the hip. No downtime and no stiches are necessary given the small size of the pellet and advances in insertion technique. Pellet therapy is the only hormone delivery system that aligns with the natural 24 hour cycle that the human ovaries and testicles do to naturally produce hormones in our bodies. This method ensures a steady, 24 hour low dosages as the natural body once created. No need to change patches, apply messy creams, inject weekly or remember to take a pill. And you won’t experience the fluctuations in blood levels as with the creams, injections or other methods. A steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the blood stream as needed. This gives the body the ability to control the release of the hormone just as it did when the ovaries and testicles were working normally.

Best of all, they are natural, safe, and effective.
