Oprah, Dr. Oz and network news reports, have all been talking about Bio-Identical Hormones or BHRT. It seems both men and women are becoming more interested by the day. So what is BHRT? It is replacing the hormones your body once made on its own with the exact copy prepared by a compounding pharmacist from natural sources.

So why do we need to replace the hormones our bodies once made? How would I know if I needed BHRT? As we age both men and women make lower levels of hormones. Estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and DHEA  are the main hormones of focus in BHRT. Some of the signs and symptoms of  hormone deficiency or hormone  imbalance in women are hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, anxiety, irregular periods, heavy periods, depression, low libido, dry skin, decreased memory, and vaginal dryness, just to name a few. In men with low testosterone, we see depression, lack of energy, loss of lean muscle, and loss of or diminished libido. If you have these symptoms and want to find out if you could benefit from BHRT, stop by Tower Compounding Pharmacy for a Hormone Deficiency Screening Kit or ask your health care provider to give you a blood test to determine your hormone levels and balance. The experienced staff at Tower Compounding Pharmacy can assist you and your health care provider in selecting the proper lab tests.
