Take Hormones at Menopause

Erika Schwartz, M.D By Thursday, 02 October 2014 04:46 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Regardless of what you are told by your doctor, friend, or the media, take hormones, specifically those known as bioidentical, which are similar to those our bodies made when we were younger.
 
“Bioidentical” may be a marketing term used by alternative doctors to identify and separate those hormones from other forms, but the fact is they are molecularly identical to the hormones our bodies make. They are made from soy and yam oils, and are pharmaceutical products made by processes of concentration and purification in large manufacturing facilities across the globe.
 
The final product is a powder that is transported in drums to big pharmaceutical companies and compounding pharmacies. There, these hormones — estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone — are made into creams, patches, pills, and gels.
 
Your physician must write a prescription for bioidentical hormones, and they are either made to order in a compounding pharmacy, or available at your local drugstore in mass-produced forms. Regardless of which place you get them, the outcome is the same. These hormones, especially estradiol, protect you from heart disease.
 
So make sure you don’t take “no” for an answer when you ask your uninformed gynecologist or internist for them. You need them to protect yourself from heart disease a lot more than you should worry about them increasing your risk of breast cancer, which they don’t.
