Diabetes & Hormone Pellet Therapy for Men
There are many components to the development of diabetes later in life. People born with diabetes or who develop it as a child typically are diabetic because of a genetic predisposition for the condition. While people who develop diabetes later in life as adults may also have genetic components to the reason for their development of diabetes, pellet therapy may aid diabetes in men regardless of the source of their condition. Learn more about this and other therapies below.
What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a disease wherein the capacity for the body to metabolize sugar is impaired. This happens because of a problem within the pancreas involving the production of insulin. The pancreas is responsible for the production of insulin which is a hormone. Insulin allows our bodies to eat sugar which is found in many foods including breads, not just sweet desserts and sodas.

Insulin is a hormone which, like all hormones, is intricately connected to every other hormone and hormone-secreting gland within the body. When there is a problem with the synthesis of insulin, it may be the result of a chain reaction in the body resulting in a problem with insulin.
What Are the Early Symptoms of Diabetes?
The early symptoms of diabetes come together to create a condition called prediabetes. Prediabetes is a condition wherein blood sugar is continually high but not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes just yet. Another name for prediabetes is impaired glucose tolerance. Glucose is another name for sugar when it is in the body. Symptoms include excessive hunger, excessive thirst and consistent feelings of tiredness or exhaustion.
What Is BHRT Pellet Therapy?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, involves supplementing missing or unbalanced hormones within the body with hormones that resemble the chemical structure of human hormones identically. These hormones are compounded into the form of pellets. Pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and are inserted subcutaneously under the skin, providing continual treatment of symptoms such as diabetes in men between three and six months.
