Tired, lacking in energy, and just don’t feel like yourself anymore? You’re not alone!

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) For Men La Jolla, CA

As men age, hormone levels naturally decline, leading to a range of symptoms that can affect physical health, mental clarity, and emotional well-being. Testosterone, in particular, plays a crucial role in numerous bodily functions, including muscle mass, bone density, libido, mood regulation, and cognitive function.

When testosterone levels decline, men may experience symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Loss of muscle mass and strength
  • Weight gain, particularly body fat around the abdomen
  • Decreased libido and sexual performance
  • Mood swings, irritability, and depression
  • Memory loss, brain fog, and cognitive decline
  • Sleep disturbances

    How Do Bioidentical Hormone Pellets Work?

    Bioidentical hormones have an identical molecular structure to those naturally produced by the body and are best delivered in small, custom-compounded pellets that are inserted under the skin.

    Bioidentical pellets release hormones slowly and steadily over several months, providing a consistent level of hormone replacement therapy without the peaks and valleys associated with other delivery methods.

    Inserted in a simple in-office procedure, pellets are quick and relatively painless. Once inserted, they deliver a steady stream of hormones into the bloodstream, mimicking the body’s natural hormone production.

    Only a single rice grain-sized pellet every 5-6 months is needed to restore hormone balance and optimal health.

    Benefits of BHRT for Men

    Reclaiming vitality starts with replenishing your hormone levels. Our all-natural treatment marks the first stride to restoring balance, vitality, and well-being for the fulfilling life you deserve.

    Consistent Hormone Levels

    Pellets ensure a steady and consistent release of hormones throughout the day. This steady release mimics the human body’s natural hormone production more closely than other forms of hormone therapy, such as oral medications or topical creams, which can result in fluctuations in hormone levels.

    Convenience and Longevity

    Once implanted, BHRT pellets provide a long-lasting solution to hormonal imbalance. Depending on individual metabolism and hormone needs, pellets typically last between three to six months before needing replacement. This eliminates the need for daily hormone administration, offering convenience and peace of mind.

    Proven Safety & Efficacy

    Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones with pellets mimic the exact function and release of human hormones, with a lower chance of potential side effects and health risks. With the correct dose of hormones in a pellet form you receive maximum relief without the negative effects of synthetic forms.

    Customized Treatment

    BHRT pellets are tailored to each individual’s specific hormonal needs based on comprehensive evaluation and laboratory testing. This personalized approach ensures that hormone levels are optimized to address symptoms effectively while minimizing the risk of side effects.

    Effective Symptom Relief

    Bioidentical hormones alleviate a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, decreased libido, hot flashes, and cognitive decline. By restoring hormonal balance, pellets restore energy levels, vitality, and overall quality of life.

    Improves Bone Health

    Hormonal imbalances, particularly in estrogen and testosterone levels, can contribute to bone loss and increase the risk of osteoporosis. Balancing hormones plays a vital role in preserving bone density and reducing the risk of fractures, promoting long-term bone health.

    Enhances Cardiovascular Health

    Hormones are essential to cardiovascular function, including blood pressure regulation, lipid metabolism, and vascular health. BHRT pellets can support cardiovascular health by optimizing hormone levels, potentially reducing the risk of heart disease, cardiovascular disease, and other cardiovascular conditions.

    Increases Muscle Mass

    Muscle loss and decreased muscle strength are common symptoms of hormonal imbalances, particularly in testosterone levels. By restoring optimal hormone levels, men preserve and increase muscle mass, which can improve overall physical performance and quality of life.

    Alleviates Sexual Dysfunction

    Hormonal imbalances impact sexual function and libido in men and contribute to erectile dysfunction. BHRT pellets, by restoring hormonal balance, can improve sexual desire, performance, and satisfaction, enhancing intimacy and overall sexual health.

    Quality of Life

    Most importantly, BHRT pellets significantly improve overall quality of life by alleviating bothersome symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. Patients consistently report a remarkable improvement in various aspects of their lives following BHRT pellet therapy with heightened energy levels, enhanced mental clarity, greater mood stability, and more.

    Why use pellets instead of creams, injections, patches, or oral medication?

    Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets offer a convenient and consistent delivery method, ensuring a steady, gradual release of hormones into the bloodstream over time.

    This results in optimal hormone levels without the inconvenience of frequent administration.

    What are the common side effects or health risks in men using BHRT?

    While long-term negative side effects and adverse reactions are rare, patients may experience minor side effects such as acne, hair loss, or mood swings, which diminish over time. Our providers carefully review your medical history, monitor hormone levels, and adjust treatment as necessary to minimize potential risks.

    Although temporary side effects may occur initially, addressing imbalances in essential sex hormones is crucial for preventing long-term health complications.

    How are pellets placed into the body, and does it hurt?

    Pellets are inserted under the skin with the aid of local anesthetic through a small puncture, typically resulting in minimal discomfort. They provide sustained release over several months and can be replenished as needed.

    Are all pellets the same?

    Not all pellets are equal; some may cause allergic reactions or degrade too quickly, leading to erratic hormone release. Pellets at KOI Wellbeing in San Diego, CA are manufactured at a compounding pharmacy and are renowned for their exceptional quality and reliability.
