Preteen daughter

My daughter has been diagnosed with ADHD and at 10.5 is having signs of early puberty, body changes, emotional mood swings. Is it safe to put her on progesterone cream?

Yes it is perfectly safe for your daughter to use progesterone, provided it is used correctly. Please read the How to use Progesterone Cream page. I suggest that she uses 100mg/3ml of Natpro Progesterone Cream and see how that goes. She will experience some Estrogen Dominance symptoms.

Progesterone will certainly help your daughter as it does have calming affects, but please look into giving her the amino acid tyrosine and vitamin D3. There is evidence that there is an imbalance in the dopamine pathway in ADHD/ADD. Tyrosine is the precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine, lack of protein and stress lower tyrosine levels, with a subsequent reduction in dopamine. Tyrosine is essential for any stressful situation, cold, fatigue, emotional trauma, prolonged work, sleep deprivation. It improves memory, cognition and physical performance. ADHA/DD patients have significantly lower levels of tyrosine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, histidine and isoleucine. Acute, uncontrollable stress depletes dopamine. But the rate limiting step in dopamine synthesis is the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase. Insufficient levels of vitamin D3 inhibit tyrosine hydroxylase, resulting in a disturbance in the dopamine pathway. What is her vitamin D3 level?

What is her diet like? Too much sugar is a killer, if she is consuming a lot sugar/carbs it will certainly have an affect.
