During your consultation a comprehensive medical history will be taken by your doctor, who will also assess nutrition, lifestyle and health risk factors.
The health check can include a full physical examination, and appropriate blood tests will be carried out to measure:
- Hormone function
- Thyroid function
- Blood biochemistry
- Vitamin D levels
- Full blood count
Additional tests may also be recommended:
- Ultrasound of the uterus
- DeXA scan for bone density
All tests will be carried out at, or organised by the Clinic. Additional tests and referrals can be made subject to your needs. If appropriate, a bespoke treatment plan involving bio-identical hormones and supplements will be developed.
Many women report they feel much better on bio-identical hormones and recent American research estimated that between 30% and 60% of post-menopausal women getting hormone replacement are taking some form of bio-identical hormones.
