A Guide to Testosterone Pellet Therapy for Low T

What to Know About Testosterone Pellets for Men

Testosterone is a sex hormone that is essential for many bodily functions. For men, testosterone regulates sex drive, fertility, muscle mass, fat distribution, and mental function. When testosterone levels decline, it can lead to negative symptoms and side effects that may interfere with your life. Signs of low testosterone include reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, lower energy levels, weight gain, and brain fog. 

Risk factors of low testosterone include aging, obesity, and inflammatory diseases.  If you are dealing with distressing symptoms, it may be time to get your testosterone levels checked and begin treatment if needed.  

Continue reading to discover how testosterone pellets can help to naturally balance your hormone levels. 

What is Testosterone Pellet Therapy? 

Testosterone pellet therapy is a technique that aims to correct low testosterone using natural hormones that are chemically identical to the ones already found in your body. Since the hormones match your body’s natural receptors, they are a safe and effective treatment for restoring optimal testosterone levels. 

The testosterone pellets are made from plants and are a substitute to the hormones already produced by the human body. Once inserted into the body, the pellet metabolizes naturally, absorbing into your bloodstream. This method allows for a steady stream of testosterone to release over the course of three to six months; however, the exact duration depends solely on how quickly your body metabolizes the pellet. Many men prefer this method of bioidentical testosterone therapy since it is convenient, long-lasting, and requires minimal effort. 

How Are Testosterone Pellets Administered?

At Lowcountry Male, testosterone pellets are administered in our upscale clinic with a simple procedure. After applying an anesthetic, your physician will insert the pellet under the fatty tissue near the hip. Since the pellet is only about the size of a grain of rice, the process is painless and no stitches are needed. The entire procedure takes less than an hour, and the beneficial effects of the testosterone pellets can be noticed soon after.

What Are the Benefits of Testosterone Pellets?

1. Fat Loss and Muscle Gain

Not only can testosterone promote fat loss, but it can also lead to muscle growth. In fact, a scientific study displayed that testosterone stimulated muscle protein synthesis in all subjects. This increase in muscle mass can also boost your resting metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories at rest and leading to sustained fat loss. 

2. Enhanced Sexual Performance and Stamina

Low testosterone levels can negatively impact a man’s sex life, leading to a lower than usual sex drive and even erectile dysfunction. In fact, a scientific study featured in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism confirmed that libido and testosterone displayed a significant association. Therefore, if you are experiencing sexual difficulties due to your hormone levels, testosterone pellets may be able to help get your sex life back on track!

3. Boosted Energy Levels

Testosterone helps to sustain healthy energy levels due to the role it plays in the production of red blood cells. These cells transport oxygen throughout the body and convert food into energy. As a result, men with low testosterone tend to experience chronic fatigue that makes it difficult to go about their day-to-day lives. However, testosterone pellets can bring low levels back to normal in order to re-energize your body and mind.  

4. Maximized Mental Function

Not only does low testosterone affect you physically, but it can also negatively impact your mental function. A systematic review of aging men showed that testosterone supplementation led to improved cognition. Therefore, testosterone pellets can keep your mental processes running smoothly.
