Although quite straightforward, the original prescribing and fine-tuning of formulae does require a thorough understanding of the signs and symptoms of over and under dosing each hormone. Approximately six weeks after starting treatment, the blood hormone profile is re-tested. The ideal blood hormone levels are patient specific, but in general aim for the top 2/3’s of the reference range. Some women require a little estrogen whilst others require significantly more. Estradiol levels of 200pmol/L, FSH 10-20 can be used as guides. Consider the hormone levels together with any patient symptoms to fine-tune their prescription.
