June is National Men’s Health Month! A great time to examine your own health or the health of the men in your life. The purpose is to heighten awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of diseases including cancer, heart disease, depression, and to also reflect on overall health. While considering one’s overall health, it’s important not to overlook hormones.
Hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems that exist in the body and one of the most overlooked. A hormonal imbalance can wreak havoc on your health and can present a variety of symptoms that can affect everyday life. Hormone levels change as we age, causing low mood, poor sleep, and other health issues. Optimizing your hormones may help provide relief from some hormone imbalance symptoms.
Even a small imbalance can cause changes in a man’s body. While many recognize that low levels of testosterone in men can lead to a low sex drive or erectile dysfunction, many are not as familiar with the other symptoms. These include:
- Chronic fatigue
- Loss of muscle mass
- Increased body fat (especially in the waist area)
- Decreased bone mass
- Mood changes
- Lower mental capacity
- Brain Fog
The good news? Dr. Dan Savarino offers a solution that can clear men of their symptoms.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets, the BioTe Method of pellet therapy, is the preferred choice at Apex Center for Regenerative Medicine. The Biote Method of hormone optimization uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets, which contain testosterone that the body sees as identical to what it produces naturally.
This method provides an easy and effective solution to the problem. A patient will receive two to four pellet insertions per year allowing the hormones to be readily available when your body needs it.
BHRT pellets are:
- About the size of a grain of rice
- Inserted subcutaneously
- Absorbed as the body needs them, helping optimize hormone levels
- Dosed precisely for each individual patient’s needs
Getting started is easy.
At the first office visit, Dr. Savarino will test current hormone levels and will determine if the patient is a candidate for BHRT pellet therapy based on a comprehensive consultation and thorough a blood work panel. A follow-up appointment will then be scheduled for pellet therapy insertion.
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Based on the bloodwork, Dr. Savarino will customize a treatment plan to fit each patient’s specific needs.
