      I'm sorry you're going through so much with your kidney issue and now having to deal with perimenopause. Has the prednisolone given you energy in the past? Well, if your blood pressure came down it's good you stopped the Atenolol. The thing is that since you're starting oestrogel which should takes a couple of days, it's hard to say whether it will give you the energy you need. Usually in perimenopause we are in need of vitamins, like Vitamin D3. I would suggest you take vitamin D3. But let your doctor know first.

      I think you need to discuss all this with your menopause doctor. How long have you been on menopace? If you started when you started the oestrogel, it should have started working but since you have dialysis, that takes it to a whole other level.

      Kim, upon reading some medical data, it says that every time you have dialysis that your vitamins are filtered out. This is why it would be prudent to ask your doctor if your hrt therapy is also being filtered out. This way you'll know if your hormones are ever going to balance out.

    When we're perimenopausal do we lack estrogen too? I read many of you are on estrogel. I also hear uesteogen... Is this expensive form? I was prescribed just the tablet of progesterone and nobody seems to be taking this. So confusing
