She Talks Health with Dr. Carolyn DeLucia and Sophie Shepherd

Health Care's Gender Gap: How a proposed FDA ruling could have devastating consequences for women

Maintaining hormonal balance is critical to not just longevity, but maintaining our quality of life. On a recent episode of the She Talks Health podcast, Dr. Carolyn DeLucia explains how hormones affect our ability to sleep at night, build muscle, lose fat, and have energy, as well as maintain our mental acuity and libido.

Bio-identical hormones prepared at compounding pharmacies are for many people the only option for maintaining that balance, says Dr. DeLucia. Now, however, the FDA, because of a flawed and biased study, is attempting to effectively deny many Americans access to this treatment. 

While such an action would harm members of both sexes being treated with bio-identical hormonal therapies, it would be especially harmful to women. As Dr. DeLucia points out, there are simply fewer alternative treatments available for women. 

The results of the FDA’s proposed limitations on compounded hormonal therapies could be devastating, and Dr. DeLucia, as well as many other physicians, urge Americans to take action. Go to and voice your support for these life-changing treatments.
