Recently, compounded bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has come under fire. In July 2020, a report commissioned by the FDA was published by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, & Medicine (NASEM), that ultimately recommended across the board restrictions on compounded hormones, potentially removing access to this important therapy for millions of patients who benefit from them.
The overwhelming number of patients who take compounded hormones are women who are experiencing menopause. Restricting access to compounded hormones is more than just a bureaucratic matter. Most of the patients taking compounded hormones have no other options—their physician has determined that manufactured hormones don’t meet their needs—and the symptoms of hormone imbalance can be quite devastating to a person’s well-being.
