Testosterone Pellet Therapy

Testosterone is an important hormone that regulates many functions in the body. You may have heard that testosterone imbalance is an issue that only affects men. That’s incorrect: Testosterone imbalance can, and does, affect both men and women. When left untreated, low testosterone can seriously damage your breasts, bones, brain, heart, joints and even your relationships. However, it isn’t hopeless: Testosterone imbalance can be treated with testosterone pellet therapy. This treatment is safe, effective and has been in use for more than 80 years.


What is Testosterone Pellet Therapy?

Testosterone pellet therapy is a treatment made to combat testosterone imbalance. Testosterone is a hormone that regulates or helps regulate many of the body’s key functions. Testosterone is present in men and women, although men produce more of it.

As people age, their bodies slow testosterone production. Men ages 30 to 70 will lose 1% to 3% of total testosterone production per year, and women prior to perimenopause and/or menopause lose 50% of their testosterone production. This drop in production leads to many serious symptoms.

Low testosterone symptoms in men and women include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Lack of sleep
  • Memory loss
  • Depression
  • Lack of focus
  • Brain fog
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Joint pain
  • Migraines
  • Bladder symptoms
  • Decreased sex drive

Men dealing with low testosterone may suffer from non-valvular erectile dysfunction stemming from low desire. Men who have low testosterone increase their risk of developing:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Prostate cancer
  • Diabetes mellitus (DM)
  • Sarcopenia (muscle loss)

Women dealing with low testosterone suffer from significant issues as well. One in seven premenopausal women die of heart disease; in postmenopausal women, this number rises to one in three.

  • Cardiovascular disease
