Along with finding more gray hairs and noticing a few more wrinkles, aging can also bring about several symptoms not always visible to the eye. Too often, these symptoms which are affecting daily life and overall health, are misdiagnosed as natural signs of aging, when in many cases they reveal a hormone deficiency. Today we’ll talk about how hormone pellets in Arizona can help!
Hormone replacement therapy can be a confusing topic. There are many options available for testing that claim they can help you feel like your old self, but you can only try so many pills, patches, creams, injections and even suppositories before getting frustrated and getting to the point of giving up.
The symptoms of a hormone deficiency are a little different for men and women:
Men can experience low energy and fatigue, low libido, and depressed mood.
Women can experience hot flashes and night sweats, joint pain, mood changes and a decrease in intimacy.
Hormone pellets in Arizona can help relieve these symptoms by way of implantation. Pellets offer a safe and effective method for therapy without the risks associated with conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
We feel bioidentical hormone therapy is superior to other hormone replacement options for these 4 main reasons.
1. Convenient: Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months with no need to remember patches, creams, or daily pills.
2. Effective: Pellet implantation has consistently proven more effective than oral, intramuscular and topical hormone therapy to varying symptoms such as maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in libido and mental clarity.
3. Fast Results: Some patients begin to feel better within 24-48 hours while others may take a week or two to notice a difference. Diet and lifestyle, along with hormone balance are critical for optimal health. Hormone levels are re-evaluated at 4 weeks after pellet therapy.
4. Safe: Testosterone, delivered by pellet implantation, has been shown to be protective against cancer. Bioidenticals have also been studied to improve overall mortality rate with heart disease.
Hormone pellets in Arizona have been used since the 1940’s and data supports it as the most effective and the most bio-identical method to deliver hormones in both men and women.
In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response, and performance.
As you noticed above, we mentioned both men and women can benefit from pellet hormone replacement therapy. Oftentimes, people assume only women are affected by hormone imbalances as we age, but men are just as likely to experience hormonal symptoms due to aging.
Testosterone levels begin to decline in men beginning in their early 30’s. Most men maintain adequate levels of testosterone in their mid 40’s to mid 50’s, some into their late 70’s to early 80’s.
Even men in their 30’s can be testosterone deficient and show signs of bone loss, fatigue, depression, erectile dysfunction, difficulty sleeping and mental decline. Most men need to be tested around 50 years of age. It is never too late to benefit from hormone therapy.
Hormone pellets in Arizona really are one of the best options for hormone deficiency. However, don’t forget, diet and lifestyle, along with hormone balance are critical for peak health!
