H I Pete,
My problem, I think as well as my family doctor, is menopausal. I don't get hot flashes like other women, I get it a form of burning skin and this is triggered by sun exposure. Although I wear sun block almost all the time, even if my skin is slightly exposed, eg. When I'm travelling from work in the train, as soon as I get home, my legs, back,lower back start to burn and it's quite bad, I cannot sleep unless I take a zanax or a gravol. I did take bioidentical HRT for 3 months during winter (started in October) and then I stopped in Jan , so it's hard to know if HRT helped with the sun exposure. In my notes, I found that each time I was exposed to the sun even when I was taking the HRT, I had some burning, on some days a bit, other days quite a lot. Please advise.
Just follow our patient empowerment program which I will now send to you, fill out the history form and send it back to us, so we can schedule a consultation with you, and get you this suggestion of therapy for natural bioidentical HRT, to start with. We can also offer saliva testing, I do recommend the testing be done before the consultation takes place, and the saliva test can be covered by insurance for only a copay if you have either Blue Cross or United Healthcare coverage. We do need to test your levels for Estradiol, progesterone, Testosterone, and DHEA.
Here is the program, just click on the link in line # 2 or 3:
To learn more about how we can help you get started on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and feel better through our “Patient Empowerment Program” click here http://www.bpharmacysolutions.com/hormone/overview.asp or post this in your web browser. This program was developed to assist you in getting started on the natural bioidentical hormones. It empowers you through knowledge and education to approach your physician and get the natural treatment you are looking for. We provide physician referrals, as part of our program.
The patient empowerment program is a full in-depth consultation with a consultant pharmacist whereby we evaluate your symptoms, lab work of your hormones (if performed), and any other pertinent laboratory results via phone consult. We then make an assessment and write a clinical consult note that includes recommendations for natural bioidentical hormones that you can provide to your doctor. If you have already discussed bioidentical hormones with your doctor or if your doctor refuses to prescribe them after reviewing our recommendations, we will provide you with a referral to a physician in your area that will prescribe bioidentical hormones.
We would like to help you feel better, and be your compounding pharmacy in the future. We ship all across the country, and accept hundreds of insurance plans for reimbursement.
After you fill out the consultation form, you will be contacted by one of our consultant pharmacists within 2 business days to set up a consultation. Alternatively, to get started you may call 1-800-728-0288 and request to schedule a consultation with one of our pharmacists or forward an email requests for a consult to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to speaking with you.
