Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Hormone imbalance from decreased testosterone production in men after about age 40 is at the root of a number of physical symptoms, including depression, fatigue, obesity, and erectile dysfunction. These symptoms related to aging are what some people refer to as man-opause. Supplemental testosterone can provide symptom relief, but the oral, transdermal, or injection delivery method of hormones can be inconsistent and inconvenient, and can have some small risks.

We have a better answer: Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in the form of pellets placed under the skin that deliver steady-state physiological replacement testosterone continuously for 3-4 months.

Bioidentical hormones are made from plants. They have the exact same chemical and molecular structure as hormones produced by your body and can be used to restore your hormones to the correct level. Balanced hormones can offer you:

  • Increased muscle mass, strength, and athletic performance
  • Increased bone mass
  • Increased sexual interest and improved sexual performance
  • Decreased visceral and subcutaneous fat
  • Increased energy and improved sleep
  • Relief from depression and anxiety
  • Brain protection and improved cognitive function
  • Heart protection

The BHRT form we prefer is the pellet delivery system from Pellecome. Dr. Van Kirk inserts a pellet or pellets right under your skin where they release a consistent dose of hormone to ease your symptoms. The pellets last for 3-4 months.

If pellets aren’t right for you, Dr. Van Kirk also offers compounded hormone formulas based on your body’s specific needs.
