A member asked:

How do you feel about bio identical hormone replacement therapy for weight loss?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Hormone: Therapy (except for thyroid) doesn't help with weight loss. "bioidentical" is a lay term with no legal meaning, but generally "very expensive without any benefit". Most, if not all, of the commercially available hormones are manufactured to be identical to naturally secreted hormones, have been inspected and approved by multiple agencies, and are manufactured to exacting and reproducible standards.
