Pellets deliver consistent, physiologic levels of hormones and avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with other methods such as pills an creams. The goal is treatment at physiological levels, to have your body be where it should be optimally.

Testosterone imbalance, or Andropause, can affect men not only with their daily lives but their health too.Testosterone imbalance can affect other aspects of health such as sugar control, blood pressure and cholesterol. For some men, pills, injections and creams are an effective method as long as they are taken at the right time each day to keep a constant stream in your body.
