Aromatase Inhibitors

Aromatase Inhibitors

December 14, 2021


Older patients or post-menopausal patients generally are on a treatment, that’s called an aromatase inhibitor. And that’s because, although they’ve gone through menopause, they’re still making the female hormones, which is a common question I get from my patients is, “After I’ve gone through menopause, why do I have to worry about my hormones?” And that’s because the body still makes some hormone based on a system through the adrenal gland. So aromatase inhibitors actually block that production of hormone in a different way.
