Have you ever found yourself feeling unwell for no apparent reason, or struggling with your weight or muscle mass? Has your doctor told you that you have low testosterone levels, and you aren’t sure what your best options are to fix them?
Figuring out a solution to your problems can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be.
Testosterone pellets may be just what you need to help yourself start feeling better today. Here are just a few of the signs that you may want to consider using testosterone pellets.
Testosterone pellets are a type of hormone replacement therapy often used as a replacement for injections of pills. They function as a small implant placed just under the skin.
They are capable of delivering testosterone into the bloodstream for up to six months after placement, after which a new pellet can be inserted by your doctor. Of course, they do come with side effects, so it’s important to talk to your doctor about the potential risks and benefits of using testosterone pellets.
While the signs may be different for men and women, there are a few classic indications that you may want to talk with your doctor about testosterone pellets. Here are just a few of those signs.
Do you suffer from insomnia or other sleep-related struggles? If so, then testosterone pellets can help with your nighttime troubles.
Low testosterone can trigger bouts of insomnia, as well as frequent nighttime urination and other sleeping problems. This is a serious issue, as the lack of proper sleep can lead to mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression later in life.
If you find yourself having a hard time falling asleep, staying asleep, sleeping too much or too little, or getting high-quality sleep, then you should talk with your doctor about your testosterone levels.
Losing muscle mass is a very clear sign that you have low testosterone levels. If you continue your usual levels of activity and maintain a healthy diet, but still find yourself losing muscle mass, then you should get your testosterone levels tested.
Testosterone pellets can actually help your body produce additional amino acids to help break down protein and develop lean muscles. It can even help you start breaking down fat as a result as long as you keep your diet in check!
While gaining fatty tissue around the breasts doesn’t necessarily point to a testosterone deficiency, low testosterone levels can cause glandular tissues to start forming in men. This is because low testosterone is linked to low metabolism, which causes excess fat to form on the stomach and chest.
Even if you remove the breasts, they will continue to reform if the problem isn’t taken care of. Testosterone pellets can help prevent the breasts from reforming.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bone frailty, otherwise known as “brittle bone disease”. Those with osteoporosis fracture and break their bones more easily in the case of an accident.
Between lessened muscle mass and brittle bones, your lowered testosterone may make you more likely to suffer from broken bones and other harm from accidents. If osteoporosis runs in your family and you’ve noticed one or more of the above signs, then you should check with your doctor about your testosterone levels to prevent injury.
Shrinking testes are a very clear sign of a testosterone deficiency. If you have found that your testes are disproportionate to the size of your penis, or that they have shrunk quickly over time, then you may want to get your testosterone levels tested and consider testosterone pellet therapy.
Hot flashes and night sweats are often a sign of menopause or andropause. This is what happens to both men and women as they age. While it normally occurs at late stages in life, some people can experience it in their adolescent and adult lives.
Testosterone helps the body maintain homeostasis, and is linked to maintaining our body’s core temperature. When testosterone levels are low, the body can feel warm even when in a cold room, and night sweating can occur. Implanted testosterone pellets can relieve these feelings and help you live comfortably again.
Do you have a high risk of developing heart disease? If so, then you may want to consider using testosterone pellets.
Lowered testosterone levels can increase your risk of heart disease in several ways, so getting an implant may be necessary to keep your heart healthy. Whether you have a family history of serious heart-related illnesses, are obese, or have high cholesterol, getting a testosterone pellet implanted may help to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.
Using testosterone pellets can benefit the physical and mental health of both men and women, and help keep you healthy for the future. If you have noticed any of the above signs, then you should consult your doctor about the potential use of testosterone pellets today!
