Hormones are chemical messengers secreted into the bloodstream by gland. These substances play a significant role in your overall health and well-being.Collectively hormones allow the endocrine system to regulate all body functions. One example is insulin, secreted by the pancreas. Every cell’s glucose metabolism and thus energy production is dependent on insulin’s activity. All hormones work in concert as metabolism and energy are also affected by thyroid hormone, and cortisol as well as the sex hormones Testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. A balanced endocrine system allows for optimal cell function and subsequently optimal health and well-being.
Pellet implants are used because scientific data supports this form as the most effective and bio-identical method to deliver hormones for women and men. Pellet therapy avoids the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with every other therapy by delivering consistent healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men.
Most are familiar that diabetics receive insulin treatment, or those with low hypothyroidism / low thyroid receive thyroid hormone replacement. So what about sex hormone replacement for menopause or andropause. Both conditions are related to the gradual decline in the production of Testosterone, progresterone and estrogen. When deficiencies or imbalances develop, replacement restores youthful levels improving health and well-being. In both menopause (women) and andropause (men) hormone declines are gradual and progressive over a period of years, ultimately resulting in physiological and psychological changes. Symptoms vary in each individual and each symptom may vary from mild to severe.
Known as the male hormone it is also present in and critical to health and well-being of women. In both men and women Testosterone is part of many physiologic processes, including muscle and bone growth and health, red blood cell production, libido and sexual response, energy levels, mental function including concentration, focus, irritability, memory and sleep. In addition, Testosterone plays a key role in inflammation, metabolism and digestion helping to maintain blood sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels and utilization affecting weight. Testosterone replacement enhances weight loss and in doing so decreases the risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Recent studies seem to indicate that Testosterone therapy may protect against breast and endometrial cancer and have no effect on prostate cancer.
