Menopause Publication: A Letter to the Editor and DUTCH’s Response

Mark Newman

Season 4, Episode 2 on the DUTCH Podcast

21 May 2024

Listen in to this episode of the DUTCH Podcast as Mark Newman, MS, discusses Dr Pam Smith’s Letter to the Editor in response to our Menopause publication, a peer-reviewed study on the comparison between FDA-approved estrogen patches and gels to compounded estrogen creams.

Mark and Jaclyn examine the somewhat confusing nomenclature between estrogen dose amount and absorption amount, the differences in response between patches, gels, and creams, and how salivary versus urinary testing can tell different stories in a patient. They also discuss how the research around hormone monitoring has advanced over the years and the importance of paying attention to clinical outcomes as well as the full body of scientific literature available.

Read the published article in Menopause and check out Dr Pam Smith’s Letter to the Editor.
