How do I find out if I have “low T?” A simple blood test at our office. We usually have the results back from the lab within a week of the blood draw.
Are there any side-effects and/or complications? There are substantially fewer side effects with BHRT than with tradition hormone therapy. The pros and cons can be discussed at your consultation
Is it expensive to treat Low T? Not with our program. Initial consultation is $125, labs are $195, insertion for women is $300, and for men it can range from $600–700 depending on the dose needed.
How often will I need pellets? For women, usually every 3–6 months, for men usually every 5–6 months.
Why are pellets better than shots or pills? They are pure hormone that is not metabolized into byproducts by going through the liver, stomach or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet as the blood flow surrounding the pellets picks up what is needed.
Where do the pellets go? Because the pellets are pure hormone – without fillers or synthetic ingredients – they completely dissolve. The pellets are inserted on your upper buttock under the skin.
How long will it take for my body to get back to my ideal level of fitness/weight? That depends on how much you exercise and work out with weights, as will as your age. Testosterone decreases fat and increases muscle and lean body mass. Testosterone also increases your natural growth hormone and therefore will improve your stamina for working out and your muscle mass.
How long will it take for the pellets to get into my system to work? 24–72 hours. Optimal effects occur 3 weeks after insertion.
I have no libido – what will this do for that, if anything? Good hormone balance will greatly improve your libido; the addition of testosterone in pellet form can change everything.
