Questions Commonly Asked About Colorado Hormone Replacement Therapy
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC Colorado HORMONES?
The term "natural" hormones simply means that these hormones are chemically the same as the ones the human body produces. They are also called "bio-identical" or "human iso-molecular." "Synthetic" hormones refers to those manufactured with a chemical structure that is foreign to the human body but mimics some hormonal activity. An example of natural Colorado hormones would be Estriol, Biest, Triest, Progesterone, Testosterone, and DHEA. An example of synthetic hormones would be HGH., Premarin, Prempro, Climara, Estratest, Estratab, and all birth control pills.
WHY DO NATURAL Colorado HORMONES REQUIRE A PRESCRIPTION?
Natural Colorado hormones can only be obtained from a compounding pharmacy. Compounding or formulating a customized dosage for an individual person is a function a pharmacist performs only with the permission of the physician. All of the Supplement Ingredients may not be prescription, however anything that is compounded must be prescribed.
WHERE DO THESE HORMONES COME FROM?
Natural hormones are obtained from sterol analogues found in many varieties of plants, primarily soybean and yam. The estrogen and progesterone powder is transformed chemically from the plant into the human bio-identical hormones.
HOW DO I GET STARTED ON NATURAL Colorado HORMONES?
Natural hormone replacement therapy must be customized for each patient. Only after a thorough review of the symptoms and history can an effective regimen be designed. This recommendation will then be faxed to our physician for his or her approval. After obtaining the approval of the physician your medication will be custom made for you at a participating pharmacy.
WHAT IS THE COST OF THE MEDICINE?
The cost varies depending on your particular needs, however if you do not have insurance the cost of the medicine is typically around $40 per month.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Ideally, there are no side effects since the hormones are given with the intention of restoring normal hormone levels. Side effects occur only if one hormone is out of balance with the others. All medications have some amount of risk associated with them. It is important to realize that if you experience side effects a simple adjustment will be made to stop the side effects.
Benefits and safety of treatment
TRT has had a bad press due largely to concerns about abuse and over-dosage in athletes, and alleged dangerous effects on the prostate gland, heart and liver. The answer to these concerns in brief is that though different forms of testosterone treatment have been widely used for over 60 years, all the most up to date research is confirming the basic safety and effectiveness of testosterone treatment when correctly applied in the medical setting.
The essential full work-up before any man starts on testosterone treatment is designed specifically to exclude prostate problems. This on-going screening means that the patient on testosterone knows that he does not have prostate cancer. The latest evidence shows not only no increase in his chances of getting it with testosterone treatment, but that death rates from the condition are reduced by regular screening with the PSA and other tests.
Similarly, like female HRT, male HRT with testosterone is actually being shown to protect the heart and circulation, and reduce the risk factors for arterial degeneration. Also, provided the toxic form of Methyl Testosterone is avoided like the plague it is, other forms of carefully monitored testosterone treatment are safe for both heart and liver.
