Abdominal weight gain
Are you one of many who have been told getting older means just accepting fatigue, “brain fog”, anxiety, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, decreased sex drive and energy levels, joint pains, insulin resistance, females: hot flashes and menopausal symptoms, and males: erectile problems? AS PART OF LIFE? We beg to differ, you do not have to live feeling like this.
Many of these symptoms and problems stem from testosterone deficiency in both genders. The cornerstone of our bio-identical hormone replacement program is testosterone replacement therapy for both men and women. This is done by placing small pellets of testosterone the size of rice grains into the fat of the “love handles” or upper hip area of the body for both men and women. The advantages of testosterone pellet therapy over other delivery methods include steady, consistent blood levels instead of the spikes and dips in blood levels associated with injections. Additionally, pellet therapy involves less frequent treatments: every 3-4 months instead of weekly injections. Contact us for a consultation and evaluation if you are experiencing any of the symptoms and problems mentioned.

Some facts concerning “T” therapy:
In both sexes testosterone is the most common sex hormone. In both sexes there are cell receptors, or “doorways” throughout the body for testosterone: the brain, heart, muscle, bone, bladder, skin, fat, breast, uterus and male sex organs. These tissues require testosterone for proper function and therefore the effects of testosterone on the body are global and critical. Estrogen is a vital hormone as well for both sexes. It is actually derived from testosterone and converted to estrogen inside the cells of our bodies by an enzyme called aromatase. It is this intra-cellular estrogen that has important functions for many of the bodies critical systems. Some females do require additional dosing with estrogen or progesterone and can have it included as part of the pellet therapy.
