Bio-identical Hormone therapy

Bio-identical hormones are derived from natural sources and are, as the name suggests identical to our own hormones, and produce the desired results with minimal side effects. Maintaining a balance in hormones like oestrogen, progesterone, DHEA and Vitamin D (it is a hormone, not a vitamin!) is the key to anti-ageing and to other important health benefits.

They are used for a range of conditions, most commonly for premenstrual and menstrual symptoms, but only after blood tests are done to assess the extent of hormone imbalance or deficiency.

This is personalised medicine at its best where medications are specially made up in a specialised compounding pharmacy, to replace the hormones based on the blood test results. This treatment is not available on the NHS.

A 90 minute consultation is essential, in addition to a blood pressure assessment. Additional investigations may be necessary e.g. ultrasound scan, DEXA scan and this will be discussed at consultation.
