Avatar n tn and, the current researchers who work with women and bioidentical hormones all agree that it is time to stop putting a band-aid on a huge problem. We deserve better. I am going to be in trouble if I don't get to bed soon :) Mary... Oh, do you know what type of hormones you were on? Pills? Synthetics? etc...
Avatar f tn I am afraid to take arimidix since it causes bone loss. I want to take bioidentical hormones but my oncologist is against it. Has anyone with hormone receptor positive breast cancer taken bioidentical hormones? What are your thoughts?
6726276 tn?1421126668 My mother tried bioidenticals for her depression, bi-polar, and menopause symptoms. The bioidenticals did not work for her at all. In fact she developed a blood clot which is one of the dangers listed for bioidenticals. Whether the compounded drug caused it or not I am not sure. It is possible ... I am very careful about manufacturers/corporation claims with regard to anything I consume from medication to food to febreeze.
Avatar n tn I aged horrifically fast after an unwarranted hysterectomy. I lost most of my hair in a matter of months. And experienced all the skin aging you described plus loss of muscle mass. How long have you been using Rogaine and are you noticing any regrowth? We will survive and overcome...I hope!
Avatar f tn I was told D.O. doctors thought more out of the box because they studied beyond regular med school. I just called two D.O.'s yesterday and both only use blood tests for everything (thyroid, adrenals and hormones). I thought they would be the doctors who would know blood tests aren't accurate for all things, especially cortisol and sex hormones if you're already on bioidentical hormone replacement. Now I don't know who to call anymore.
Avatar f tn You should discuss this with your oncologist, but it is generally condiered NOT to be a good idea. In January of 2008 the FDA sent warnings to a number of large compounders of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) products, expressing concern about these manufacturers' claims about the safety, effectiveness, and superiority of their products. Also, Dr.
Avatar m tn Hi Nancy! Thanks for the help. Bioidentical hormone replacement sounds promising and we plan on looking into it. Angela is a little hesitant about taking testosterone. So far it has been difficult to find a doctor in our area who specializes in BHRT but we are still looking. Your advice is well rounded and informative and we are blessed.
405824 tn?1201817954 I saw your other post on the difference between the bioidentical hormones ( they enter/act in our body the exact way as the hormones they are replacing molecule for molecule...much like Insulin, which is a bioidentical...and, Armour thyroid and Synthroid (all bioidentical much to the surprise of many especially since Armour is made from pigs!) Sorry..I digress. Anyway, the difference is One Molecule. The pharmaceutical Co.
401095 tn?1351391770 I have always taken smaller doses off and for anti-aging benefits as the production of DHEA declines with age...I was thinking about adding it to my ton of pills on a daily basis...
Avatar f tn When my antibodies came back high 2 years ago I was already seeing a hormone doc for anti-aging medicine and to control my perimenopause symptoms. I was interested in only taking bioidenticals and included my thyroid meds in that so that is when I started having the T3/T4 compounded into an oral pill. The TPO-ab results did go down, but now I see the last 3 labs have been high, but everything else normal. No, I did not take any meds before the draw, and I was fasting as well.
Avatar f tn Thank you so very much. I will check the link.
1103360 tn?1258309599 Find a bioidentical hormone dr or antiaging dr who can give you "natural" bioidentical hormones so your body will accept them. Just google and you will find a lot in your town. Synthetic hormones are not always good for you as your body has told you already!!
Avatar m tn Can you share your anti-aging regimen like cream, facial wash, soap, supplements, diet, etc. Would appreciate any info. Thanks!
Avatar n tn and so if this is the case, you might need to advocate for yourself and do the necessary research to look into another type of hormonal treatment unless you are lucky enough to find someone who really knows what they are doing regarding bioidentical hormones and the need to balance them all out in your system. Testosterone is not just for libido.] I can get more info for you if you want, but I cannot leave you a message since you don't have a profile yet.
Avatar f tn Hi Jess, I responded to this question under the "mood swings" thread to which you posted...just thought I would give you a heads up!
Avatar f tn Two weeks ago I had a total hysterectomy due to having very larg cysts on my ovaries? Is there any perticualar hormones I should take or avoid? I have no clue about everything that is going with my body now and really could use some help.
Avatar f tn I had to hunt and hunt to find someone to really hear me and my journey is not over as I am just starting to feel quite well after several years of hit or miss and not getting the correct amount of hormones, particularly Bioidentical Estradiol. You deserve to feel well. Not to sound arrogant, but many doctors just are not aware of all that hormones affect in us women ...
Avatar f tn Check out my profile (in a journal) on Bioidentical hormones... also check out some of my more recent posts. I have a ton of info on the bioidentical hormones (I just did a check on Enjuvia and from what I can tell, it is a conjugated synthetic estrogen in a pill form). I also have some more recent posts on the weight gain issue, which I have done a ton of research on myself. I am not almost 9 years post surgical menopause (ovaries removed along with everything else).
Avatar n tn I would recommend seeing a doctor that specializes in bioidentical hormones and menopause. As we age, we produce less estrogen which is important in preventing vaginal atrophy and lubrication and testosterone which is absolutely key to our libido and all things sexual, our ability to become aroused, our sensitivity and ability/quality of orgasm. I have estrogen and testosterone implants in my hip and I can say they work! There are options and there is no need for you to lose your sex drive.
Avatar n tn do you have any idea how i can reduce anti TPO level or which medicine very much effective on anti TPO?..my endocrine giving me thyronorm 150 mcg,last 2 months..but yet not any change...
Avatar f tn The doc said my one ovary should make sufficient hormones. I feel spacey and mentally different, I know the pain medicine may have some effect but not sure how much. Anyone care to share your experiences with just one ovary after an abdominal hysterectomy. I am 41 and not so sure this is going to cut it.
Avatar n tn Nothing seems to work to get me back to normal again and worry I am taking this synthroid for nothing. I too have heard about the bioidentical hormones and wonder if it could help me. Do I too go to the same website you told Hutchi to find out?
621426 tn?1221537052 I have become agitated very easily, anxious, and depressed. I believe it has something to do with my hormones or lack of them. I went to a Dr. today that want to do a saliva test for hormones, but not covered by insurance and then of course I would have to met with someone that would go through the results of the test and set me up on a natural hormone. I'm just not sure this test is any better than blood drawn test.
