Do you remember our newsletter
last year detailing how Wyeth Pharmaceuticals was attempting to stop
compounding pharmacists from prescribing natural progesterone (diosgenin)
after their profits fell by more than 57% from $2.07 billion in 2003 to
$800 million in 2004 (after the WHI study had to be stopped)?
Well, now they have gone after
centers like ours making complaints to the Federal Trade Commission
(FTC). The FTC's position backed by the big pharmaceutical companies is
that Dr. John Lee, M.D.'s studies were not scientific and did not rise to
the standard of FDA and National Institutes of Health studies, and that
our claims about natural progesterone are false, unfair, deceptive,
misleading advertising in violation of the law..
what Dr. Helen Pensanti M.D. has to say about this. Read on to how the study

The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) level
measurement is a good - though not completely accurate - indicator
of perimenopause and the need to begin treatment. Increased FSH
level measurements can help women understand experienced symptoms
like fatigue, headache, insomnia, hot flashes and mood swings.
As women age and begin perimenopause, the
ovaries gradually make less estrogen and the FSH level increases.
The FSH level begins to rise at about age 30 and the FSH level
continues to increase during perimenopause. The FSH level at that
time may also fluctuate erratically, ranging from a level consistent
with postmenopausal range and falling again to the range typical of
young fertile women.
It is because of these frequently changing FSH
level that place the FSH level measurement as an unreliable marker
of infertility. Ovulation - and potential fertility - can still take
place sporadically for up to one year after the FSH level
measurement places a woman in menopause.
Though women should not rely completely on an
FSH level to determine whether or not they are still fertile, the
FSH level measurement can indicate a time to begin treatment in
Women at the beginning of perimenopause
looking for the right treatment must weigh all options before
deciding which perimenopause treatment is best for them. Finding a
perimenopause treatment for symptoms must be balanced by the
long-term safety of the perimenopause treatment they select.
