Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Studies
Are there any studies on BioIdentical Hormone Replacement?
Yes! We often are asked by patients for information that can be sent to their OBGYN or insurance company regarding bio-identical hormone therapy for menopause, perimenopause or PMS.
Dr. Mahmud published a study in the journal of Gynecological Endocrinology where 97% of the patients experienced relief of menopausal symptoms. The article is called “Natural Hormone Therapy for Menopause”. A summary of the article can be read here. If you would like to receive a copy of the full article, contact us.
Dr. Mahmud’s book, Keeping aBreast, Ways to PREVENT Breast Cancer also contains a lot of great information explaining the different hormones and how bio-identical hormone replacement plays a role in helping to prevent breast cancer. A copy of Dr. Mahmud’s book is available for purchase in our clinic.
Additional studies for women Dr. Sinda often references can be looked up via the links below:
