Hormone Testing Charlotte NC involves synthetic hormones that are most often prescribed once a patient’s hormone levels have dropped dangerously low. Additionally, there are several reports of negative side effects from traditional HRT. Despite the dangers, doctors still prescribe traditional, synthetic hormones. he pharmaceutical industry is unable to patent bioidentical hormones because they share a molecular structure with a natural hormone. It has not been cost-effective from a business standpoint to promote the use of these bioidentical hormones until now. Bioidentical hormones are pure biologically identical hormones extracted from plants or synthetically manufactured.
They are identical molecule for molecule to a human hormone and work in the body just like the hormones our bodies produce. Bioidentical hormone prescriptions are developed in a compounding pharmacy. A compounding pharmacy conducts itself like the first pharmacists and customizes each prescription to the individual patient. A doctor sends the compounding pharmacy instructions specific to your test results and your compounding pharmacists develop the pill, capsule or cream for you based on those instructions.
