Dr. Emdur shares how he figures out a woman's hormone levels.
I practice medicine is really science-based and what I do is actually measure each patient’s hormone levels because everybody is different and there’s several ways to check it, that I can do a 24-hour urine, you could do with a saliva test, you can do a blood test. I like the 24-hour urine since you are getting a look at the patient’s hormones for a 24-hour period, than the blood test were you are just looking at that particular point in time. But the important thing is replacement therapy should be based on science and science should be based on what your levels are on day-to-day.
