Testosterone for Men

Just like in women, BioTE® Pellet Therapy can help men achieve optimal hormonal balance. Testosterone is the most important and vital hormone in men. These testosterone levels lessen as men age and can also be brought on by certain medical conditions or treatments. A sex hormone, testosterone plays important roles in the body. At the reproductive age, it regulates libido and sperm count and viability. But beyond what is conventionally considered to be the reproductive period, testosterone is a huge contributor to men’s health. It is significant to fat distribution and muscle mass and strength. Testosterone also helps to regulate mood and energy. It’s easy to see that regardless of age, low testosterone (low T) leads to a whole host of problems for guys across the lifespan.

What are the symptoms of low T?

When evaluating your own health for BioTE® Pellet Therapy, consider that there are various symptoms of low T. These are often vague, misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Chalking the symptoms up to just normal aging, a lot of men completely ignore these signals until they become a severe problem and impact daily life. Many times, it is the man’s partner who urges him to seek help.

Take a look at the list below. If you or someone you care about has one or more of these symptoms, it could be low T.

Some of the most common symptoms of low T are:

  • Decreased sexual performance
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Low muscle mass
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Skin problems such as acne

In addition to the above, there are two additional sets of symptoms brought on by low T: andropause symptoms and metabolic symptoms. Andropause in men is similar to when a woman’s ovaries stop producing hormones and this stage of life results in low T. Symptoms of andropause can be difficult to deal with and include hot flashes, erectile dysfunction and sleep disturbances. In contrast, metabolic syndrome in men can cause low T which in turn results in unexplained weight gain and the increased risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Both andropause symptoms and metabolic symptoms can be effectively treated with BioTE® Pellet Therapy.

The only way to know for sure if you suffer from low T is by thorough testing to check hormone levels. This can be done through saliva, blood or urine tests.

What are the risks of having low T?

Low testosterone leads to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes. Low T also increases cholesterol, belly fat and mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression. Last but certainly not least, low T leads to issues with intimacy: low sexual performance and different forms of erectile dysfunction.


How is BioTE® Pellet Therapy different from other forms of HRT?

If you’ve checked around, you have probably seen many choices to regain hormone balance. There are injectables, creams and lotions widely available on the market. How do you choose the method right for you?

BHRT, or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, most closely resembles the hormones naturally produced by our bodies. BioTE® Pellet Therapy uses hormones, estrogen and testosterone, that are bio-identical and closest in structure to what your body produces. Estrogen and testosterone are consistently present and metabolized in the body at some level, which decreases with age. In addition, many patients take comfort in knowing BioTE® Pellet Therapy is plant-based.

Safety comparison

You can feel comfortable with BioTE® Pellet Therapy. In fact, studies have shown that bioidentical hormones are more effective at balancing hormonal chemistry than their synthetic counterpart. Experts have concluded that this is due to the molecular similarities to natural hormones normally present in our bodies.

In contrast, when considering synthetic hormone replacement therapy, studies have shown a correlation in the use of this type of hormone replacement therapy with a higher risk of heart attack, stroke, breast cancer and blood clots.
