Hormone Balancing and Optimization
Hormone imbalance is extremely common, especially in patients 40 years of age and older, with low testosterone being one of the most common imbalances. Many patients do not even realize that they are suffering from low testosterone (often referred to as “low-t”), they simply think that their symptoms are a normal part of the aging process. However, that is often not the case.Adequate levels of testosterone are imperative to a man’s health maintenance and general well-being.
Most Common Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Men Include:
At Ambani Center for OBGYN & Aesthetics we offer extensive hormone testing and balancing and an advanced approach that simulates your body’s own natural processes, releasing the hormones you need in a gradual and controlled way depending on individual needs. Optimizing hormones can reduce the risk of age-related health issues and allow greater symptom relief over other hormone balancing methods.
During the initial consultation, Dr Ambani will review your symptoms, order hormone testing, discuss the problems you’ve been having, and determine the hormone therapy that will be best for you, she will explain the treatment process and expected outcomes.
- Less chance of “roller coaster” levels of hormone.
- No office visits every week for retreatment.
- No chance of spreading the hormone to others through contact.
- No risk of forgetting a treatment or missing an injection visit
Bio identical hormone replacement therapy with pellets is a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement. They are plant based natural substances that metabolize in our bodies the way nature intended.
The pellets contain the desired hormone eg testosterone in the desired dose individualized to each person’s needs. The pellets are slightly larger than a rice grain and are inserted by a sterile technique under local anesthesia with a small incision under your skin typically in the flank or upper buttocks. These continue to deliver hormones depending on your cardiac output into the blood stream.
On an average, pellets last 4-5 months.
Most patients begin to feel better within 2-3 days, though it may take a week or two for some women to notice a difference.
