Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. The advantage of compounded HRT is that it can be adapted specifically to fit each individual’s body and hormone levels. Bio-identical hormones have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own. A pharmacist experienced in HRT may assist the healthcare provider in helping interpret the results of serum or saliva tests which measure a patient’s hormone levels. The healthcare provider, compounding pharmacist, and the patient can use the results of these diagnostic tools to help determine a course of treatment which will give the patient the exact amount of hormones her body needs. Working closely with a woman and her healthcare provider, a compounding pharmacist can help a woman start and maintain a hormone replacement regimen that brings her hormones back into balance and closely mimics what her body has been doing naturally for years.
A hormonal imbalance can affect more than your mood – it can be responsible for a number of related health concerns, including:
These conditions affect millions of women. As the number of women seeking hormonerelated treatment has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches and creams by the drug industry.
