Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Did you know that men’s testosterone levels begin to decline as they reach their 30s, 40s and 50s?Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men And sometimes even younger! You may have heard these changes referred to as “Andropause”. Much like women, men begin to experience very uncomfortable symptoms as their testosterone levels drop. Most often these changes occur gradually over many years, so that one day you wake up and realize you just don’t feel the way you used to.

You may have begun to notice:

  • A decrease in muscle mass
  • More fat around the middle
  • Less strength and endurance
  • Loss of libido
  • An inability to maintain an erection or a less strong erection
  • Depression
  • Thinning of bones

Often we believe these changes are an incontrovertible fact of aging. But getting older, doesn’t mean you have to feel older. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help restore your optimal hormone levels and along with it your vigor and zest for life—not to mention add renewed energy and an improved sex drive!

Why aren’t more men receiving Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Through extensive training and study, the Health Care Professionals at Texas Spine & Wellness understand the complex roles that hormones play within the human body. As a Wellness Clinic, we have researched the latest science along with the optimal levels of testosterone required for heightened wellness and improved well-being. This can be vastly different from the minimum acceptable levels noted on the conventional blood tests run by most MDs.

By running the proper tests, we gain an accurate picture of your overall health and your hormonal profile. From there we can create a personalize testosterone treatment program.

Why Bio-identical Hormone Pellets?

The conventional hormone treatments offered through most doctors offices often rely on synthetic hormones. These formulations contain preservative and stabilizing chemicals. They can also vary in degrees of potency and effectiveness.

The synthetic hormones are usually administered by injections or creams. (Testosterone pills or sublingual tablets are not usually recommended for long term use, as testosterone must pass through the liver, where high doses can cause liver damage.)

The Disadvantages of Testosterone Injections and Creams

Generally, if testosterone is given through an injection, you may need a shot every one to two weeks (depending upon your metabolism and dose it might be even more frequent). For people who don’t like shots or making frequent trips to the doctor, this is not an ideal situation.

Creams also present problems as they must be applied every day to a hair-free area, are messy and carry a risk of being transferred to a partner, child or pet. The creams can also get on clothing.

For this reason we prefer bio-identical hormone pellets. The application is done within our office and the procedure itself only takes about 15 minutes. It is done by inserting testosterone pellets, which are slightly larger than a grain of rice, under the skin just below the hip area. Once inserted, the pellets begin to release steady low doses of testosterone around the clock.

The release of hormones will respond to your level of activity or stress. If you’re playing racquetball or mowing the yard, you’ll receive a slightly higher dose of testosterone. If you’re watching a movie or reading a book, you body will deliver a little less.

For most men, one application will last for approximately six months, keeping your hormone levels nicely balanced and making doctors’ office visits very infrequent.
