Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: jean

Question:
hi, I am a 49 year old pre-menopausal woman. Stll having periods. In the past few months I have been experiecing hairloss. I have been noticing on the floor, in my brush and my hair which is normally very thick and would take atleast 20 min to dry now only takes about 5-8 min. So I am not imagining it. I am a vegetarian and have been for many years and I am very conscious about protien intake. I exercise daily take vitamins and other supplements and for the most part do the right stuff. This has been my routine for years. I am 5'7 125lbs I even do yoga, Ha! In August several month ago I began training for a marathon. I have kept up with the running schedule. Could extra activity or stress be playing a part on my system? Do you have any suggestions. Thank you for your help. Jean Birger

Answer:
Dear Jean:

Someone who trains very hard, like you are doing, can have this happen because at your age you are burning up all the estrogen that your body is still producing. This could also effect your thyroid levels too, and yes your body is under some stress I am sure, so the adrenals could be slightly mal-functioning also. We do full consultations through our patient empowerment program, which I will send you at the end of this note. In the meantime, before we would do a consultation, I would suggest testing (ask it to be done by your doctor) for the following hormones: Estradiol, progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, DHT, Cortisol, and for Thyroid the following; TSH, Free T-3, and Free T-4. Once the results come back, then ask them to fax them to one of us at the Pharmacy to review as part of the consultation with you. Fax is 1-800-458-9182.

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 info@bpharmacysolutions.com. We look forward to speaking with you.
