In the most comprehensive review to date addressing the relative safety of hormone therapy for transgender persons, researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have found that hormone therapy in transgender adults is safe. The findings, which appear in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Endocrinology, may help reduce the barriers for transgender individuals to receive medical care.

Thanks for sharing!!!

What is critical with hormone regiment is that one strictly follows their physician's instructions as not doing so can cause issues i.e. there are reasons estradiol is placed under the tongue rather than swallowed.

See an endocrinologist then.  But any kind of doctor should be able to check your levels and prescribe whatever's needful, trans or not.

Send her to her GP, or refer her to a GP and/or an endo.  Disscussion on HRT acceptable to a limited degree - dosages and regimes are not.   -Mike
