Oral hormone treatment has been the common practice for years but has recently been discovered to have multiple repercussions that are beyond simple side affects. This has more or less shown the medical community that things need to change.
Oral hormone treatments tend to cause an increase triglyceride levels, C-Reactive protein and prohypertensive and pro-thrombotic factors, which burdens the portal absorption and first-pass liver impact. Once or twice may not be harmful, but like many other things in the medical community, over a long period of time this could be detrimental to women’s hormones and women’s health in general.
The best methods for treatment insertion are transdermal and intravaginal administration, or intra-uterine (Mirena IUD) for progesterone.
Things have already started to change in the hormone treatment field. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement therapy is the common practice these days for treating such hormonal changes as menopause and may even help with obesity, which is different from being overweight because it is actually an infection affecting your hormones.
Bio-Identical Hormone Treatment is the best thing for female hormone therapy, and hormone therapy in general because it is safe, and it works. Diosgenin, a steroid found in Mexican yams and soy, cannot be changed into estradiol or progesterone by our bodies. Someone has to change it in a lab to be, molecule for molecule, identical to estradiol or progesterone. These custom compounded hormones are preferable for hormone treatment.
What used to be the leading hormone treatment, Premarin, was made from pregnant horse urine and other mixes of horse estrogen. Now that has been done away with and Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement therapy is spreading, which is good for everybody. When you go to your doctor for hormone treatment, make sure that you know what you are getting yourself into. Do not be afraid to ask your doctor follow up questions and to clarify what he is saying.
