At risk alarms are ringing yet again for post menopausal women taking “hormone pills, Pempro, pills containing estrogen plus progestin, or Premarin, estrogen-only pills.” These alarms are warning these women they are at risk for developing kidney stones.
As always discuss the risk vs. benefit with your physician. We already know that hormone replacement medication has been linked with heart attacks, breast cancer & strokes. It is further recommended that if you must take these medications take them for as short a period of time as possible to limit your health risks.
Be well you all…
