I'm a 58yr. Old woman in menopause 3 years and on synthroid for hypothyroidism.I Also use EString. I'm concerned about joint pains in my fingers as well as deterioration happening with back pain in my spine. I was diagnosed (at 50) with Osteoporosis.My Endo insists that drugs such as Boniva,Actonel,etc. Are a must for me to take. My Mom had breast cancer and I'm afraid to take replacement hormones.I Have already had a breast biopsy for calcifications in both breasts.
what type of therapies would you suggest for me? Safety is an issue.
Estring will not give you enough estrogen to solve the lack of internal estrogen problems, such as the aches and pains in the bones and joints, as well as the osteoporosis problem. We can offer the natural bioidentical HRT, which would be safer than synthetics, but not give you a definite 100% chance of no cancer. If you want to try them, then fill out the history form in the patient empowerment program and submit it back to us for a consultation and then a suggestion for therapy for you. We will ask you to have your doctor order this from our Pharmacy, and we will ship it to you. To use a low dose would probably be OK for you, and then, yes, I would use the Actonel or Boniva along with it to protect you from further bone problems. Also, it would be a good idea to have a good diet and do weight bearing exercises daily for the bones. I will now send you the patient empowerment program to follow, so we can help you get started soon:
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 email@example.com. We look forward to speaking with you.
