Bioidentical hormones are designed to have identical molecular properties to the hormones produced in the body. These bioidentical hormones can be considered by physicians as a treatment option to control menopausal symptoms, prevent osteoporosis and more. Controlling hormone levels in the body is a delicate task, so each patient may be suited for different doses and formulations. In the purpose of precise control of hormone levels, physicians may discuss with compounding pharmacists if a patient-specific drug product can be prepared. This is where compounding allows customized treatments to meet individual patient needs.
