Pocatello, ID, November 8, 2017 – Proper hormone balance is key to a woman’s overall health and quality of life. But as they age, many women need additional supplements to maintain optimum hormone levels. Now there is more expertise than ever in hormone replacement therapy right here in Pocatello.
Local Compounding Pharmacist, Dr. Lorri Gebo-Shaver, Pharm.D, has achieved the professional certification of Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialist by completing a rigorous program of study, Comprehensive Core Concepts in Compounding, offered by PCCA.
Full Course of Study
The course includes specialized study of ovarian anatomy, physiology and endogenous hormone function, laboratory tests and uses, clinical compounded treatment therapies, dosing guidelines and patient counseling.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a growing practice in pharmacy compounding, in which specialized pharmacists prepare customized medications for patients, by prescription order, when a practitioner determines that an off-the-shelf medication is not appropriate for the patient. HRT is most often prescribed to ease the symptoms of menopause, but it also can be used to treat a variety of conditions that women of all ages may experience, including:
|· Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)||· Irregular menstrual cycle|
|· Moodiness||· Infertility|
|· Post-partum depression||· Weight gain|
|· Endometriosis||· Fibrocystic breasts|
|· Sleep disturbances||· Hot flashes|
|· Night sweats||· Decreased libido|
|· Painful sexual intercourse||· Vaginal dryness|
These conditions affect millions of women. As the number of women seeking hormone-related treatment has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches and creams by the drug industry. However, each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs, but commercially manufactured products tend to be “one-size-fits-all,” and do not always account for the differences between individuals.
Your Health Care Team
Working closely with a woman and her healthcare provider, a compounding pharmacist can help a woman start and maintain a hormone replacement regimen that brings her hormones back into balance and closely mimics what her body has been doing naturally for years. With a healthcare provider’s prescription, the compounding pharmacist can prepare hormones in a variety of strengths and dosage forms, including:
Once the therapy is begun, the compounding pharmacist will continue to work with the woman and her prescriber to make sure the HRT is working correctly, adjusting the dosage if necessary, ensuring that the medication is just right for her body.
