Declining Hormones

As we age, important hormone levels drop. By age 35, or earlier, hormones begin to decline in both men and women producing some or all of the symptoms listed below.

  • Decreased Energy & Motivation

  • Declining Work Performance

  • Muscle Loss

  • Increase in Body Fat

  • Aching Joints

  • Decreased Libido

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Mood Swings

  • Difficulty Sleeping

  • Loss of Memory

  • Mental Fogginess

  • Migraine/Headaches

MEN

  • Erectile Dysfunction

WOMEN

  • Hot Flashes

  • Night Sweats

  • Vaginal Dryness

When hormones are replaced or physiologic levels are restored to those considered normal for younger individuals, men and women experience a dramatic reversal of many symptoms of low hormone levels.1

In clinical trials, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has produced

  • improvement in psychological well-being and mood.2, 3

  • improvement in libido and erectile dysfunction.2
  • increased muscle mass and strength.4
  • preservation of bone mass.5
  • a positive effect on the clinical course of Crohn’s disease.6

Testosterone therapy has the potential to slow or halt the progression from metabolic syndrome to overt diabetes or cardiovascular disease due to beneficial effects on insulin regulation, lipid profile and blood pressure.7 Properly administered testosterone replacement therapy, in which estradiol and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels are also controlled, has no adverse effects on myocardial infarction risk. Therefore, in men, testosterone replacement therapy is often accompanied by an aromatase inhibitor, such as anastrazole, and a 5α-reductase inhibitor, such as dutasteride or finasteride.8 Hormone balancing for men may also include dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), chrysin, zinc, selenium, and other supplements.

Natural testosterone should not be confused with synthetic derivatives or “anabolic steroids,” which have caused disastrous effects when used by athletes and body builders.

Why Pellet Therapy?

Pellet therapy relieves symptoms of hormone deficiency. Busy, active men and women no longer need to worry about remembering to take their medication, there are no unsightly patches, and hormones are not transferred to your loved ones through contact.

No More Injections

Pellet insertion is required only 3 to 4 times per year in order to maintain optimum hormone levels. Pellet insertion is an in-office procedure completed in approximately 20 minutes. Pellets are implanted subcutaneously in the hip or buttocks area. Studies show that pellet therapy improves symptoms of testosterone deficiency, and patients are satisfied with pellet therapy. Side effects are very rare.

Customized Therapy

LifePlus MD customizes therapy for each man and women. We utilize FDA-approved hormone pellets, or when larger doses are required, our physicians may choose to use pellets that are prepared using testosterone from FDA-inspected suppliers. We carefully select our sources with quality and purity of medications and safety for our patients in mind.
