Peptide Therapy Q&A
What is peptide therapy?
Peptide therapy is a revolutionary medical treatment that uses specific peptides to produce targeted results in your body. Some peptides have anti-aging effects, while others increase muscle mass and help with weight loss. Peptide therapy comes in various forms, including:
- Subcutaneous injection
- Oral pill
What are peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that link together to form a small protein. Your body contains more than 7,000 known peptides. They act as signaling molecules to enhance cellular communication and tell cells what to do. Peptides coordinate a considerable range of bodily functions, including:
- Hormone production
- Tissue and muscle repair
- Immune function
- Brain health
- Weight loss
- Libido and sexual arousal
- DNA repair
- Inflammation reduction
The combination of these effects slows down the aging process and boosts overall health and wellness.
What conditions does peptide therapy treat?
Because peptide therapy has the unique ability to produce specific effects, this treatment benefits a wide range of conditions. The team at Balanced Medical Solutions uses peptide therapy to improve various health problems, including:
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Low energy
- Anxiety and depression
- Decreased muscle mass
- Difficulty concentrating
- Autoimmune disease
Unlike hormone replacement therapy, which has very general effects, peptide therapy targets the specific issues you want to improve.
How safe is peptide therapy?
Peptide therapy is generally very safe. There are several types of peptide medications that are already FDA-approved, and they continue to gain popularity in the medical community.
Side effects of peptide therapy are rare and minimal but may include dry mouth, increased hunger, weight loss, and itching at the injection site.
What should I expect from peptide therapy?
First, your Balanced Medical Solutions provider performs a physical exam and discusses your specific concerns. They will perform blood tests to determine if peptide therapy is right for you. Then, they develop a personalized peptide therapy plan that targets the health conditions you wish to improve.
