Balancing with bio-identical hormones
I am 61 and have been using bio-identical hormones for almost 2 years in the form of troches that are placed in the mouth between the upper check and gums.
We have experimented with different ratios but my script is currently 1.5 ml bi-est, 1.75 ml progesterone plus DHEA and Testosterone. I think I had the swine flu and since then (about 3 months ago) have had candida that I cannot eradicate. Have changed my diet and it is better but not gone.
It has been suggested that too much progesterone could cause this problem. I also take thyroid meds. My progesterone levels from bloodwork were 21.4. Is the connection between too much progesterone and candida one that you are aware of?
