Hormone Replacement Therapy – Are You Man Enough?
As a man, sometimes seeking help for a problem can be overwhelmingly difficult. Men are taught and expected to be self-sufficient, strong, problem solvers. They are supposed to do the heavy lifting, to fix broken things, to be “the rock.”
They aren’t supposed to ask for directions. Or help.
They shouldn’t need a doctor. They shouldn’t need anybody.
But that’s not true.
Sometimes men do need help, and guys, if you are experiencing the symptoms of hormone imbalance due to low testosterone levels, this isn’t something you’re going to be able to fix on your own.
See, testosterone is the hormone that makes men men. Its why men have more muscle mass than women. It’s important for bone health and strength. As a sex hormone, it’s responsible for sperm production and plays a major role in libido.
And while it may get a bad rap, being accused of making men violent, aggressive, Type A or sexually promiscuous, this is simply untrue. Sensitive guys don’t have lower levels of testosterone than their macho buddies. In fact, all men need the right amount of testosterone to look and feel their best.
As men age, a gradual reduction in testosterone naturally occurs, about 1% to 2% each year with a more dramatic drop-off happening after age 45. If levels become too low, however, unpleasant symptoms can begin to manifest.
Some signs you may have low testosterone include:
- Loss of body and facial hair
- Inability to build and keep muscle mass
- Low libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Increased breast size (gynecomastia)
- Brittle bones/bone fractures
- Dry skin
- Poor concentration
- Weakness and fatigue
Low testosterone levels may also increase your cardiovascular risk and levels of bad cholesterol.
The good news is there is a safe, effective treatment for hormone imbalance in men available in the form of SottoPelle pellet therapy!
Through simple blood testing, your testosterone levels are assessed, and our doctors can recommend the right amount of testosterone for your needs. Unlike the gels or injections, you might get at your general practitioner’s office, SottoPelle’s therapy consists of tiny implants compounded from natural, bioidentical testosterone that is indistinguishable from the testosterone your body itself makes. Not only that, but the pellets are tailor-made to fit your specific needs– something you won’t get from synthetic gels or injections.
Our male patients are surprised how much more vital and balanced they feel when their hormone levels are where they should be (you can see some of their testimonials here). They feel strong and energized again. Their sex life is back to where they want it to be. They feel more clear-headed, less anxious, with an improved mood. In short, they feel like the men they want to be again.
And so can you.
