When you have a decrease in your estrogen level, your Fibrinogen level increases. Fibrinogen is a clot promoting substance that you find in your blood that serves as a great marker that your doctor can actually check through blood work. If you are a smoker or are going through Menopause, you are currently raising that Fibrinogen level. By using Bio-identical hormones to raise the level of estrogen along with a little dietary tweaking can allow for a decrease in this dangerous overload of fibrinogen. Don’t be surprised if your Primary Care Physician doesn’t even know what Fibrinogen is. If there is Strokes or Heart Disease in your family…push to have it checked. Then pursue ways to correct those unhealthy numbers in your blood work without Medications. Getting your health in balance is your responsibility. I hear often that someone does not feel well but their doctor said they were okay. Go by how you feel. Don’t believe it until you feel it!
