Peri-menopausal and menopausal women and men (andropause) can be helped by use of bio-identical hormones (hormone replacement therapy). These hormones are appealing to patients because they help to mend a hormonal imbalance with hormones that are identical to those produced in the human body.
A compounding pharmacist can tailor a hormone regimen, which mimics what a female’s body has been doing for the past 50 years or so. All women are not the same; therefore, a compounding pharmacist can make a medication specific to “fit” the patient, with the appropriate strength and form.For male patients, a supplementation of the basic hormone testosterone has shown to be an effective treatment for most men experiencing andropause.
The compounding pharmacist working with the patient and the doctor can start and maintain BHRT. Together they can choose the dosage route and strength that is most beneficial and pleasing to them.
