Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy at Life Point Medical, LLC uses BioTe pellets to increase low hormone levels within your body so you can look and feel your best at any age. 


Dr. Beck places tiny pellets just beneath your skin to slowly release testosterone, estrogen, or progesterone over time, keep hormones balanced, and eliminate unpleasant side effects associated with aging.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

If you experience the following signs or symptoms, you might have low testosterone or low estrogen:


  • Unplanned weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Increased body fat
  • Thinning hair
  • Irritability or depression
  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Osteoporosis


If you notice these or other unpleasant symptoms and you suspect hormone imbalance might be the culprit, see Dr. Beck and his team for an evaluation.

How does my provider diagnose hormone imbalance?

To find out if your hormones are properly balanced and if BioTe pellets are the right solution for you, Dr. Beck and his team check your vital signs and review your medical history. 


He asks about symptoms and medications you might take. Dr. Beck can complete a physical examination and use blood tests to evaluate levels of hormones present in your bloodstream.


This helps him develop a personalized hormone replacement therapy treatment plan that is right for you.

What should I expect during hormone replacement therapy?

Dr. Beck and his team can numb your skin prior to pellet insertion. They make a tiny incision in the skin, place a small pellet right under your skin near your upper buttocks, and close the incision. 


There’s no downtime associated with pellet insertion, so you can resume your normal daily routine right away.

How often should I return for treatment?

BioTe pellets don’t last forever and must be replaced every few months. When it’s time for a replacement, Dr. Beck and his team implant a new pellet under your skin. 


He can monitor hormone blood levels over time to help you avoid symptoms of low testosterone or low estrogen.


Don’t live with fatigue, being overweight, or sexual dysfunction when you don’t have to. Schedule an appointment with Life Point Medical, LLC by phone or online to find out if BioTe hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
