The FDA and Compounded Bioidentical Hormones (cBHT)
Compounded bioidentical hormones (cBHT) are an essential medical therapy for millions of women (and men) who suffer the debilitating effects of hormone imbalance. For these patients, compounded hormones aren't an alternative to manufactured hormones, they are the only available option. And now there is a significant threat to patient access of this important therapy.
The FDA has signaled that it may consider new regulations that, if implemented, will deny access to a critically important, life-changing medical therapy to millions of people. If you feel strongly about preserving this option, please go to Preserving Compounded Hormones | Home (compounding.com). This site contains more information, as well as, options to contact your representative in congress, contribute your patient story or even contribute financially to the cause.
