Going to the doctor is never a favorite task on anyone’s to-do list and men are among those notorious for skipping routine visits. However, a simple trip to the doctor can do more than improve health, it can maximize quality of life.
Men struggling with the “effects of aging,” such as irritability, weight gain, low sex drive, fatigue, and sleeplessness may be suffering from a hormone imbalance, meaning men don’t have to accept these symptoms as a way of life.
Low testosterone is a major cause of the so-called “side effects of aging” in men. Levels of testosterone decline as a man ages, reaching noticeably low levels around middle-age, when men become to lose muscle mass, lack energy, and experience moodiness.
Low testosterone, colloquially dubbed “low T,” affects millions of men, diminishing quality of life and impacting risk of disease. Research has shown that men suffering from low levels of testosterone not only experience symptoms like irritability and weigh gain, they are also at an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
Men who seek treatment for low testosterone, such as bioidentical hormone therapy, nutritional balance, and targeted supplements lower their risk of disease and experience a better overall quality of life.

A 2015 survey found that 41 percent of patients prefer BHRT to conventional hormone therapy, citing safety and efficacy among the reasons for their choice.
Late in 2015, the Endocrine Society gave a resounding endorsement to testosterone therapy, heralding the therapy as a low risk, high reward treatment option for men seeking to restore healthy testosterone levels while also reducing their risk of disease.
Pellet Therapy for Men
Pellet therapy is the most popular delivery method for bioidentical testosterone thanks to its convenience and safety. Unlike traditional delivery methods testosterone pellet therapy offers men, easy no hassle dosing, no risk of transference, and a steady release of hormone over the course of three to four months, mimicking the body’s natural hormone secretion process.
