Hormone replacement therapy prevents long-term degenerative diseases. IT has been shown to prevent such diseases as
Non-orally (not by month) administered estrogens have many advantages. Estradiol used on the s=kin or under the skin causes no increase in liver enzymes which cause blood clots. Estradiol creams, patches
This is not true for oral estrogens such as Premarin. Using estradiol in pellet form causes no increase in the risk of developing blood clots in the legs or lungs. In addition, recent indications suggest potential advantages for blood pressure control with non-oral estradiol.
Even though estradiol is obviously beneficial to prevent the degenerative changes in bone by preventing osteoclast (the bone cells that resorb old bone cells) from tearing down bone too quickly. But few know that natural progesterone helps build new bone by stimulating bone cells that lay down new bone cells. This is a similar effect that testosterone has in building new bone. This is why Bio-identical Hormones Replacement Therapy may have advantages in preventing degenerative arthritic processes from developing.
So, natural estradiol keeps bone cells from tearing down old bone too rapidly and bio-identical testosterone and bio-identical progesterone help build new bone.
Bio-identical progesterone acts as a hormone that stimulates mineral metabolism. Postmenopausal osteoporosis should be seen as a progesterone deficiency condition as much as a deficiency of estradiol and testosterone.
“Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy regulates the imbalance in bone remodeling, the process of absorbing and removing old damaged bone cells, and rebuilding new cells in our bones, thereby decreasing bone loss. “
