Why Do We Need Testosterone?
Both men and women will benefit from maintaining adequate levels of testosterone, which improves both mental and physical well-being. Testosterone increases both muscle strength and bone density, and helps to decrease fat mass. It also may aid in the prevention of certain chronic diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Other benefits include increased energy and sense of well-being as well as an improvement in memory and ability to concentrate. It can also significantly increase libido and sex drive.
Low Testosterone Levels in Women
Low doses of testosterone are produced in women prior to menopause and those levels decrease significantly during menopause. Low testosterone can cause headaches, anxiety, loss of mental clarity, and decreased sexual desire or libido. Delivering bio-identical hormone replacements via pellet therapy can relieve these symptoms.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone in Men
Testosterone in men gradually decreases over time starting in the mid 30s. Symptoms of low testosterone in men include bone loss, fatigue, depression, mental decline, erectile dysfunction, and decreased libido. Carefully following blood levels, the pellets can replace testosterone and relieve most of these symptoms.
