Hormone Levels in Women: An Overview Including Estrogen and Progesterone
Neal Rouzier, MD
- Describe what happens when women lose hormones.
- Describe what happens when women replace hormones.
- Identify which hormones women should use and which ones they should not use.
- Discuss what happens when you don’t replace hormones to optimal.
This webinar will provide a general understanding for physicians, practitioners and patients regarding the use of hormone levels in women. A plethora of evidence demonstrates that loss of estrogen increases cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, osteoporotic fractures, urogenital atrophy, macular degeneration and depression. Furthermore, data demonstrates that synthetic progestins increase the risk of breast cancer, heart disease, strokes, bleeding, and depression. Recent studies sort out the confusion created by the WHI (Women’s Health Initiative) and conclude that certain types of hormones cause harm in some women, whereas different hormones avoid the harm and provide a significant protection. This webinar discussion will be based on the medical literature that Dr. Rouzier has uncovered throughout his experience as a provider of hormone replacement therapy and preventive medicine.
