Bio identical testosterone pellets are one form of testosterone replacement for men. These pellets are about the size of a grain of rice. They are placed under the skin by a physician, and last approximately 4-5 months. The pellets are compounded, or made in a specialty pharmacy, based on your individual needs. Symptoms of low testosterone including: decreased libido, muscle loss, depression, fatigue, lack of energy and anxiety may improve with testosterone replacement.
Testosterone may also be replaced by using injections, skin patches or skin gels. You and your physician can determine if testosterone replacement is right for you by checking your blood work. Many men are able to achieve significant improvement in their symptoms with the use of bio-identical testosterone therapy.
