BHRT (Bioidentical hormone therapy) has quickly risen in popularity as a way to combat a wide range of symptoms associated with age-related hormonal shifts. Pellet therapy is one mode of delivery for BHRT that can help to prevent some of the inconvenience and side effects normally associated with hormone replacement.
After a man turns 30, he will lose around one percent of his testosterone each year. By the time he reaches his 50s, this gradual change can lead to a host of unwanted physical and mental symptoms, even as a man’s career and personal life may be peaking. Testosterone pellet therapy can help to reduce the effects of hormonal imbalance, optimizing a man’s sexual performance, boosting his energy levels, and improving his overall psychological state.
Signs of low testosterone levels include the following:

Testosterone is a hormone found in both male and female bodies. In women, it plays a role in energy output and sex drive, whereas for men, it controls muscle mass, bone density, libido, and sperm production. As men age, they may begin to experience a drop in testosterone levels that can lead to a host of uncomfortable symptoms. This phase of a man’s life is usually referred to as andropause, or the male equivalent of menopause.
Testosterone replacement can be an excellent solution for men who want to look and feel at their prime, even in their later years. Testosterone pellet therapy is one method of replacing hormones as a man ages. Some men prefer pellet therapy as a hormone delivery system, as it has many advantages over injections and creams. In a safe, consistent, and effective fashion, pellets offer a slow release of testosterone over 3-6 months. Pellet therapy is actually the closest thing to the body’s natural system of hormone release.
At Valley Medical Weight Loss, we tailor each testosterone replacement treatment to your unique hormone levels, concerns, and wishes. We stress a balanced lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and exercise plan.
The first step is to find out what is causing your symptoms. This means testing your hormone levels to establish a baseline. Your testosterone, estradiol, PSA, DHT, DHEA, pregnenolone, and cortisol levels will all be assessed. We may also do thyroid testing. This is all completed via your initial bloodwork.
In order to make sure that testosterone replacement therapy will be right for you, following your blood draw, we will schedule your consultation with our BHRT provider who will review your bloodwork, conduct a thorough review of your medical history, and screen for any conditions that might prevent you from undergoing treatment. If you are a candidate based on your medical history and bloodwork, your pellets will be administered at this appointment.
Four weeks after your testosterone replacement therapy, it will be time to recheck your hormone levels. At this point, we can make adjustments to your treatment plan and fine-tune your therapy to ensure your testosterone is at a therapeutic level.
Depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the testosterone pellets, you will return every 5-6 months for new pellets. Bloodwork will be needed annually to continually monitor testosterone levels.
