Like women, men experience changes in their hormone levels as they get older, which can lead to symptoms such as low libido, loss of muscle mass, and fatigue. Your physician at Urology Health Center can test your hormone levels and customize a testosterone pellet to meet your specific needs to relieve your symptoms and improve your health.
The physicians at Urology Health Center use pellets for the delivery of your bioidentical hormone therapy. The pellets, which are compounded to meet your very unique hormonal needs, are placed under your skin in your buttocks. Unlike other forms of hormone delivery, the pellet provides your body with a steady dose of hormones for long-term symptom relief.
After your pellet has been placed, it may take a week or two for you to achieve hormone balance. Your doctor has you come back to the office periodically to monitor your symptoms and hormone levels, and replace your pellet when needed.
In addition to relieving your symptoms, bioidentical hormone pellet therapy may also reduce your risk of osteoporosis and heart disease.
