- In women, hormone’s can get out of balance before and after menopause and result in increased risk of heart disease as well as poor sleep, weight gain, and a rise in cholesterol
- Saliva testing of hormones by a hormone expert (www.A4M.org) is the most accurate way to assess hormonal balance and follow therapy
- With very few exceptions like hormonally driven breast and prostate cancer, most men and women are candidates for hormone therapy using compounded hormones reassessed every 3-6 months. Pellets are not advised
