Hormone Therapy (HT) is a clinical procedure which refers to either estrogen or combination estrogen/progesterone treatment. The term “hormone therapy” or “HT” is being used to replace the outdated terminology “hormone replacement therapy” or “HRT.”
In OCCC, Doctors usually prescribe hormone therapy (HT) as a combination of estrogen and another synthetic female hormone, progesterone. Synthetic progesterone compounds are referred to as progestin. This program or service is being offered to either male or female patients.
Long term estrogen without progesterone increases the risk of uterine cancer (endometrial cancer), whereas addition of progesterone counteracts this risk. Therefore estrogen without progestin is usually only recommended for women who have had their uterus removed (hysterectomy). Estrogen is available as pills, tablets, patches, creams, and mist sprays. The choice of estrogen preparation recommended by the doctor depends on the women’s symptoms. Although progestin is usually taken in pill form, it is also available, together with estrogen, in patch or cream form.
Doctors may prescribe different schedules for taking hormone therapy (HT) depending on the patient’s needs. Patients who avail this service or programs usually make an appointment for at least two (2) weeks prior to the procedure to confirm the availability of the Doctors.
WEIGHT LOSS AND GAIN In response to one of the social issues confronted in our community which is Obesity and its opposite, OC Comprehensive Care came up with a unique program or service to address this issue.
From time to time you may notice fluctuation in your body weight and when you think about it, you can usually find an explanation. Maybe you have been exercising less or eating more and vice-versa. These fluctuations are considered to be normal. The time to be concerned weight loss or gain is when the cause is not readily apparent. Doctors in OCCC are very keen and particular on it. They are always ready and prepared to answer all your questions and would even do initial diagnosis.
Patients who avail this Program or Service in OCCC are being monitored regularly. Their monthly follow-up is very important for the Doctors in order for them to determine the effectiveness of the treatment they have provided. More so, the Front Office Staff usually remind them either through phone or e-mail as to when they are due for follow-ups and such is being made two (2) to three (3) days prior to their follow-up.
