Testosterone Replacement Therapy for North Bend Men
Hormone levels dictate many aspects of how our bodies function. If the levels are too high, too low, or otherwise imbalanced, it can lead to a variety of health issues. In the male body, testosterone is one of the primary hormones – and the primary sex hormone. It manages things like sex drive and libido, but also plays a huge role in red blood cell production, sperm production, facial and body hair growth, bone density, muscle mass and more.
The problem that many men today face is the fact that testosterone levels peak during adolescence and begin to steadily decline after their 30th birthday.
The Problem for North Bend Men: Dropping Testosterone
Doctors typically have percentage or numerical levels that they consider healthy and/or normal. Testosterone, like blood sugar and cholesterol, has these levels. When testosterone levels are below those expected numbers, they can lead to a lot of ill side effects including:
- Low libido
- Low sex drive
- Increased body fat
- Decreased muscle mass
- Low bone density
- Fragile bones
- Increased risk of heart disease
- Increased risk of diabetes
- Low energy
- Erectile dysfunction
Aside from these, testosterone levels can impact a man’s cognitive functions including moods, emotions and thinking clearly. Men facing andropause commonly see a drop in their testosterone levels. But, just because it’s common doesn’t make it any less frustrating!
The Solution: Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Pellets
The option of testosterone replacement therapy has been available to North Bend men for many years, but up until recently, it was done with a “one-size-fits-all” approach. This led to a lot of negative side effects and ineffective treatment. Thanks to leaps in technology, new bio-identical hormone therapy gives men a personalized treatment, resulting in fewer side effects and better results!
The treatment works like this: the doctor will implant tiny, bio-identical hormones in a pellet form under your skin. They slowly release natural doses of testosterone, bringing your levels back up and restoring your health. They’re customized to your body’s chemistry, instead of using synthetic hormone mimickers. Consequently, the pellets avoid many of the common side effects of other forms of hormone therapy.
