      Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy for Men

      Customizing a Plan to Fit Your Lifestyle

      Many men can begin experiencing symptoms related to low Testosterone levels associated with aging around age 40. Also known as Andropause or Hypogonadism, the terms refer to the many physical and emotional changes that occur due to low or imbalanced hormones. Testosterone replacement is essential in helping you experience long-term symptom relief and optimal health and wellness.

      There are many well-documented benefits of maintaining optimal levels of testosterone, including better health and healthy aging, as well as an overall sense of well-being. One recent study, the 2015 Veterans Database Study, found that men who treated low testosterone with testosterone therapy experienced a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke. Another study in 2016 published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), found that testosterone therapy improved mood, sexual health, and physical fitness in men.

      At Avanti Hormones and Functional Medicine, we evaluate your hormones levels, usually by a lab draw blood test; we then review your lab results with you and customize recommendations with a plan to fit your lifestyle, including hormone balancing, stress reduction, nutritional, fitness and supplement recommendations.

      Types of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

      We offer many types of testosterone therapy including, creams, injections, and testosterone pellets. We also offer other therapies such as HCG and Clomid, which can increase testosterone levels for certain individuals, especially younger men who suffer from low testosterone.

      What are Testosterone Pellets?

      Testosterone Pellets are tiny implants made up of plant-based bio-identical Testosterone, which is pressed into very small cylinders slightly larger than a grain of rice. They are placed under the skin in the fat tissue, in a minor 5-minute procedure with little to no discomfort. The tiny incision is closed using butterfly tape and closes back up within a few days. The pellets consistently release small, physiologic doses of testosterone, providing optimal therapy by delivering the amount of hormone needed when needed, mimicking nature. For example, during exercise, more testosterone hormone is released, and while sleeping, less is released, just as in nature. Most men begin to feel better and notice a difference with a few days to a week, others may take closer to two weeks.

      Pellets deliver consistent, natural levels of hormones for 4-5 months in men. There is a very high success rate with pellets, with a very high percentage of patients continuing therapy for the long term as they notice such drastic, improved results in their overall well-being. Even patients who do not do well on creams or injections or other forms of therapy for various reasons have a very high success rate with pellet therapy. Pellets have been safely used since the 1930's, both in the U.S. and Europe and have made a big come back in the past fifteen years. Also, bio-identical hormones, including pellet therapy, do not increase the risk of blood clots like conventional, synthetic hormone therapy.

      Some of the hormones we help optimize, include Testosterone, Estrogen (keeping it low), and Growth Hormone. We also use Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) to optimize adrenal hormones such as DHEA and cortisol, as well as optimizing thyroid hormones.

      At Avanti Hormones and Functional Medicine, we work on optimizing your hormone levels as well as helping you feel your best by also addressing other important lab values, as well as your nutrition, sleep and stress and fitness levels. We then implement a customized plan to obtain optimal levels for all of these factors that can lead to amazing wellness, health management and greatly reduce chances of chronic illnesses.
