The chemical castrations are being used as an effective, yet controversial, treatment for menopause.
The treatment involves injections of the drug diclofenac, which is chemically related to a class of anti-inflammatories called glucocorticoids.
These drugs are also used to treat asthma.
But there are two main groups of the chemical castrated menopausal patients that are gaining traction in the US: those who have already gone through hormonal treatments, and those who are taking drugs to help their muscles retain strength.
“It’s a combination of the two, but the difference is that the former group are using a hormone therapy and the latter group are trying to use a chemical castrator,” said Dr. John E. Pohl, a psychiatrist and director of the Center for Cognitive Therapeutics at Boston Children’s Hospital.
“The chemical castrators are getting more popular because they are treating menopausal women, because the drugs don’t have as much of an effect on them,” he said.
“If you look at the pharmacological side of it, if you have a drug that works for menopausal menopausal, then the chemo treatment is the better option,” he added.
Dr. Pock says that although he doesn’t think the chemical castsrains are as effective as the hormone treatments, he doesn and hopes that the menopausal treatment will eventually be used more often.
“I think we will see a more active use of the treatment over time, especially because the drug is more effective,” he told ABC News.
“We have seen that if we use the hormone therapy for men who have estrogen levels low, they have better muscle strength.
But if they have low estrogen, they can’t be as effective.
So if they are going to try the hormone treatment, the chemosurgery is probably the better alternative.”
So for a woman who is in a really low estrogen state, there is no benefit from the chemical casting,” he explained.
Dr Pohl says that many of the drugs being used for hormonal castration use are not FDA approved, which makes it difficult to know how effective they are.”
When you have that type of an FDA-approved medication, you know that it is going to be safe for women to take,” he stressed.
The chemical castsrin is also being used in the treatment of women with severe arthritis, although it is unclear whether it is working as well as the drugs in that group.”
In the treatment for arthritis, there are a number of different medications that are available.
For some women with osteoarthritis, there’s a steroid, there may be a combination drug and there are other types of medications that can help,” said Pohl.”
There are also studies where women who are using the chemical in conjunction with a medication, like steroids, that can slow the progression of arthritis,” he continued.”
This is why I think the most important thing for the chemical is to make sure that they are using it as part of the medication that is going into their treatment,” he concluded.
