Although testosterone is a primarily male hormone, both men and women produce it Men produce more testosterone than women. The hormone is responsible for a man’s sex drive, sperm production, fat distribution, and maintenance of muscle strength and mass.
In women, the ovaries and adrenal glands produce testosterone, but only about a 10th to a 20th of men’s levels.
Men start to experience a decrease in testosterone as they age. So do women. Men can usually maintain adequate levels into the mid-40s and 50s, but men as young as 30 can be testosterone deficient. Accelerated testosterone decline can be attributed to stress or a medical condition.
When men are deficient in testosterone, they experience a myriad of symptoms. These may include:
Women with low testosterone may experience symptoms including:
If you’re a man or woman experiencing any of these symptoms, get your testosterone levels tested at Colorado Ageless Institute.
If Dr. Fortin finds you’re hormone deficient, testosterone therapy using pellet implants is an effective and natural way to restore hormonal balance. Dr. Fortin places these pellets just under the skin where they release small, constant doses of hormones so you experience a level, balanced therapy.
Insertion requires no anesthesia and is performed easily in the office. Pellet therapy doesn’t come with the fluctuations caused by other testosterone delivery methods. Bio-identical testosterone pellets also don’t have the side effects of synthetic hormone replacement.
As a result of testosterone pellet therapy, you experience a number of health and quality of life benefits. These include:
If you suffer from migraines or high blood sugar, testosterone therapy can also help.
