Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones produced in the human body. There have been many studies demonstrating their safety. At this time, with the ready availability of bioidentical hormones, there is no reason to use non-human formulations. There is a track record of benefit and safety for women taking controlled doses of these hormones, in carefully selected formulations, under medical supervision. Horse hormones and progestins for hormone replacement should become obsolete. Patient demand will make this happen.
Is it Aging or Is it Hormone Deficiency
We see many people in their 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s who attribute their symptoms to aging. This idea may come from their physicians, who, in glib response to their questions about the origin of symptoms, respond “What do you expect? You’re 70 years old.”
Thyroid, Hormones and Antiaging
Hormones interact with each other. Changes in one hormone invariably affect the activity of other hormones. For instance, testosterone is converted in fatty tissue to estrogen, and the administration of testosterone increases estrogen levels as well. In addition, the symptoms of different hormone deficiencies overlap. Fatigue, for instance, may be a manifestation of deficiency of estrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormone, or cortisol, or of several of them at the same time.
