Dr Brooke Show #402 Q&A All About HRT In Perimenopause & Menopause Part I

First of a two part series answering all of your questions on hormone replacement therapy for both symptom relief (i.e hot flashes, weight gain, joint pain, brain fog, etc.) and protection/longevity concerns such as supporting heart, brain and bone health.

The cyclical nature of our hormones will impact how we metabolize both carbohydrates and fats as well as impact our mood, motivation and stamina in the gym. Previously, utilizing respiratory exchange rate to measure metabolism – which tells us if we are burning carbs or fats for fuel – was only available in a lab setting and not for your average girl.

I cover questions on dosing, methods of taking HRT (i.e. the patch, topical creams, oral, etc.), side effects and risks, addressing common issues (i.e. irregular bleeding on estrogen, grogginess on progesterone, etc.) and the differences between HRT terms like bioidentical, FDA regulated and compounded. It’s chock full of info! Part II out tomorrow.
