Menopause Type® Eight has symptoms that reveal decreased progesterone function, decreased testosterone function with adequate estradiol function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Eight may include decreased muscle mass, osteoporosis, some forms of cancer and heart disease. Because progesterone and testosterone function is suboptimal, they are often unable to properly oppose the actions of estrogen. This may appear to have “estrogen dominance”, even though estrogen levels are not excessive. Once progesterone and testosterone are supported to normal function, any minor “estrogen excess” symptoms and risks are usually rapidly corrected.
