Testosterone Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Theory
Testosterone replacement has become increasingly important as men and women age and the decreased levels finally prompt medical attention. Some of these symptoms common in both men and women include decreased libido, depression, hair loss, decreased strength and muscle mass,mental fog, weight gain leading to increase diabetes, blood pressure, heart disease and degenerative arthritis.Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy provides formulas for both men and women in many different forms.
For Men, Pavilion Compounding can provide a concentrated cream, strengths can be from 5 to 20%, most common, or any other your doctor requests. This compounded formula can be applied to the inner arm or thigh using Lipoderm®, an innovative transdermal base, able to drive the testosterone into the skin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KhTYMZBoJE. Several studies exist to illustrate the efficacy of this base and the confidence, I, as a compounding pharmacist, require to provide a quality, reliable method of drug delivery. Using a concentrated, higher percentage formula, allows the patient to use a much smaller amount, over a smaller area to apply the cream. This reduces the chance of transference to a family member in the event of contact. Note, several other topical formulas can be compounded, including a hydro-alcohol base, which many of our patients find advantageous. Additionally, we can provide oral capsules, quick and slow dissolving tablets which can meet the needs of many men. Andropause is a real problem and low testosterone restored with Pavilion Compoundings expertise. Should you have a unique need, we are happy to help.
Women can benefit from several formulations, including applying topically and vaginally preparations or in an oral capsule or troche, or by oral/topical drops. Sterile Bioidentical Hormone Pellets can also be used in many situations and is beyond the scope of this blog. See our SteriPellet® website for further info. A common use is to apply testosterone to the clitoral area, enhancing libido and reducing dryness. Several different types of bases can be used including petrolatum or a water washable base suitable for vaginal tissue. We even provide a highly concentrated form we call our Microdose formula in a special device called an Accupen®able to deliver a measured amount of cream.
