Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the process of restoring and maintaining hormone balance with hormones that are biologically identical to hormones produced by the human body.
Bioidentical hormones have been available and used in hormone treatments for decades. They can be custom compounded to match each patient’s unique needs and body chemistry, instead of the “one size fits all” approach used with off-the-shelf hormones.
Before prescribing hormone therapy, practitioners may perform appropriate testing and/or an examination and discuss the patient’s symptoms. Women’s International Pharmacy can help you with prescribing bioidentical hormone medications for your patient.
Below are a few laboratory resources to help identify hormone imbalances. To learn more about helping your patients optimize their hormone balance, call 800.279.5708 to speak directly with one of our pharmacists for complimentary peer-to-peer consultations.
