Asian Patients

We are decreasing the dose of estrogen. We started some time ago already to investigate and treat patients with lower doses, because a lower concentration will always be better if the results achieved are the same. At this time is accumulating evidence that, indeed, using half the dose can achieve results similar to bone level. He also works on new routes of administration of estrogens, solution for those who have intolerance to oral intake, alterations of coagulation or increase in triglycerides. First came the patches, which pierced the estrogen the body via transdermal. For some patients it meant a great convenience, but for others not so much, because anyway you have to keep the patch adhered between four and seven days trying it is does not take off, and in certain skins cause allergy. Most recent appearance is gel with hormones, which also acts through the dermis and that can deliver the same concentration of estrogen patch.

Is spreads for different parts of the body and disappears the minute from the skin without leaving a trace. His only discomfort is the everyday use. But you have to have very clear waterways management classics are not reserved only for some groups of patients explains the optional. If one wants to cause effects on cholesterol, for example, you must use the oral route. And consider also that treatments with alternative routes tend to be more expensive. Currently there are also alternative to the hormonal treatments. New drugs are used in patients who do not want to take hormones or who have contraindications for doing so.

The tibolone has the particularity to offer benefits similar to the estrogen in some territories, as in the bone, but there are no clinical studies that show that deliver estrogen cardiovascular protection, while raloxifene is indicated in most old women and that they are at risk of breast cancer. Is discussed much about Phytoestrogens, moreover, are estrogen contained in certain foods, primarily in soy and grains. Consuming Asian, large populations of these food of life, have less heart disease, fewer hot flashes, less breast cancer, endometrial and colon, which are hormone-dependent cancers. Not be extrapolated that situation with ours, because obviously there must be more factors influencing such good indexes, but the topic is investigating fairly, and indeed there is in the world a tendency to preference for natural products.
