Brooklyn, NY, June 06, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- As a holistic practitioner that provides complementary cancer care to his patients in the greater New York City area, Dr. Sergey Kalitenko is well aware of how inadequate hormone levels can contribute to an increased cancer risk. For that reason, he advises his patients to have hormone metabolites tests conducted to ensure that estrogen, in particular, is metabolised properly so the likelihood of getting this insidious disease is less.
Dr. Sergery Kalitenko is well known and respected his advice applies whether his patients are undergoing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or are simply premenopausal or menopausal women concerned about their health during this particular moment in their lives.
The main body of estrogen, estradiol or E2 is typically removed from the body by being converted into the benign 2 OH estrone or by binding to bile in the stomach and being eliminated through the kidneys. In order to effectively remove the estradiol Dr. Sergey Kalitenko believes the body needs to know what to do with the hormone, and there must be adequate enzymes to do the job along with a properly functioning stomach.
“If one of those three conditions isn’t met, it could be a recipe for disaster,” explained Dr. Kalitenko. “Instead of converting the estradiol into 2 OH estrone, the body might convert it into 4 OH estrone instead, which can lead to free radical formation and cancer. That’s why hormone testing is so critical – if we determine that estrogen isn’t at an appropriate level, we can try to correct it via hormone balancing and suggested lifestyle changes to help stave off the potential for cancer.”
Dr. Kalitenko only orders tests for patients if he were to suspect you of having hormonal irregularities with established labs. As with all tests, they’re only as good as the recommendations and informed support that he provides his patients during their one-on-one consultations.
