Should I balance my hormones to a level at age 25?
I am a 48 year old female with not many symptoms of menopause yet... weight gain, bloating but that's about it.
From a health point of view, does it make sense to balance out my hormone levels to a level they were when I was 25?
I had a blood test taken to test for everything... hormones, cholesterol etc. I did find out that I have hypothyroidism, low in vitamin D and B-12. So I am on thyroid medication, vitamin D and B-12. My progesterone was 9.9 ng/ml, my estradiol was 159 pg/ml, my testosterone was 22 ng/dl.
My doctor thinks my levels are fine and within normal range and I should not supplement them. My pharmasist who specializes in bio identical hormones thinks I need testosterone and progesterone cream.
Does anyone know the answer to this?
