Non-regulated Bioidentical HRT otherwise called Compounded Bio-HRT, uses synthetic manufactured hormones that are precise duplicates of hormones.
There is absence of medical evidence to support the way that these are used. For example, the dose of bioidentical progesterone used has not been proven to be sufficient to protect the endometrium in the presence of estrogen against cancer.
The same regulatory pathway of evaluation of the MHRA are not followed by manufacturers of bioidentical hormones. And so, the safety of these medications is simply unknown. Further data from large studies is required and this will be available we hope in the near future. However Dr Davis has completed training in bioidentical hormone therapy also and is able to advise if this might be the right type of HRT for you.
