Who Needs Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Anyone suffering from loss of estradiol and progesterone balance, will benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy. Estradiol and progesterone imbalance gradually starts in perimenopause, which is about 10 years before menopause. However, hormone imbalance can occur even earlier in a woman’s life. Hormone balance is needed for every aspect of physical and mental well-being. Our bioidentical hormone doctor in Connecticut, can help you understand if your symptoms are due to hormone imbalance. Our patient centric approach is logical and scientific. Our diagnostic methods and monitoring are accurate, focused and affordable.
Bioidentical hormone therapy not only alleviates the disturbing symptoms of menopause and perimenopause, but countless other benefits continuously occur, which are not immediately measurable. Bone integrity (including teeth), cardiovascular system, brain function, body composition, neurological system and the immune system, are just some examples. Estradiol and progesterone are also needed to optimize the functions of many other hormones, including insulin, thyroid, adrenal, brain and gut hormones.
If you feel your health and well-being are declining, either from postpartum, perimenopause or menopause, you may benefit from a consultation with our bioidentical hormone doctor in Connecticut. The testing is simple. If your symptoms are due to estradiol and progesterone imbalance, the treatment is to simply restore your natural balance with hormones completely identical to what your body made (bioidentical). Our protocol mimics the body’s natural rhythm, so you can attain maximum balance and benefits. Our approach is the most scientific and logical solution to restoring health and well-being. Our bioidentical hormone doctor in Connecticut will order only those tests necessary for safe and optimum treatment. We understand it’s very difficult to find someone who understands, cares and is dedicated in providing the best treatment. You can contact our hormone doctor in Connecticut to get an idea about the steps that you need to take.
Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Safe?
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy became controversial after the Women’s Health Initiative Study released its initial findings. The study did not use bioidentical hormone. Most notably, this massive study would never have been done if everyone involved was not completely assured of the safety of estrogen and progesterone replacement. The people involved in the study clearly did not appreciate the very significant difference in bioidentical and synthetic hormones. The study was done using the synthetic hormones, Prempro and Premarin. Prempro is a combination of Premarin (horse urine estrogen) and Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (an unnatural synthetic progesterone). These hormones were given by mouth. Estrogen is well known to increase the risk of blood clots if given by mouth. Progesterone (synthetic or bioidentical) has the tendency to convert to other unpredictable steroid hormones when given by mouth. Even with all the flaws in the study, the results clearly showed that estrogen was not linked to breast cancer. Several years later, it was seen that women who took synthetic oral estrogen alone (Premarin), had less breast cancer than the placebo. This was never discussed, as it would incriminate the harmful Medroxyprogesterone Acetate, which is still widely used instead of our safe bioidentical progesterone.
