Testosterone For Men
Testosterone levels start declining in men beginning in their early 30’s. Most men need to be tested around 45 years of age.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone
Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining erection. However, there are now ways to boost testosterone levels and they are divided into two groups–Bio-identical testosterone and Synthetic testosterone.
Bio-Identical vs. Synthetic Testosterone For Men
Synthetic hormones are structurally different than human endogenous hormones, which can often lead to unpleasant side effects. On certain biological pathways, synthetic hormones can mimic the effects of endogenous hormones. However, they rarely offer the same effectiveness at a deeper, molecular level.
Because the testosterone used is totally natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic. Moreover, many studies show optimal testosterone levels in men, over 800, have preventative effects for many disease states such as: cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, prostate cancer, osteoporosis, and more.
Typical oral, transdermal and injectable forms of therapy produce “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Rollercoaster levels of hormones do not have the same long term benefits as steady state hormone in the bloodstream.
Pellet Therapy achieves the sustained levels of testosterone that would be produced by normally functioning testicles. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces the natural level of hormone that men need.
