Men have hormones too!
Men begin losing testosterone at a rate of 3% to 10% per year beginning at age 30. Current medical research now defines a male equivalent to menopause as andropause. Male hormones, such as testosterone, decline and men may experience fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, less stamina and physical endurance, and difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection. Even if sexual function is normal, there can be changes affecting your day-to-day energy, mood and physical stamina.
Why bio-identical pellet therapy for men?
Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only method of testosterone therapy that provides sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day for four to six months without any “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Testosterone can be given in a different forms; Dr. Kaufman uses only those that are bio-identical hormones and plant based. Pellet therapy is showing even more significant results compared to creams or injections.
Men find themselves lacking in sexual desire, gaining weight, losing muscle mass, and feeling sluggish, depressed and irritable. Male hormones and associated treatment may help.
