Cancer and HysterectomyUpdated 11 days ago

Is this safe to take if you have had oestrogen-receptive breast cancer?

Lots of current research is supportive of the inclusion of soy foods in the diet of those who have survived cancer and does not suggest harmful effects even in those with oestrogen-receptive breast cancer. You can read this study for more information but in summary, it states:

'Overall, these studies indicate that soy foods consumed at levels comparable to those in Asian populations have no detrimental effects on risk of breast cancer recurrence and in some cases significantly reduce the risk. Importantly, soy does not appear to interfere with tamoxifen or anastrozole therapy. Recent research suggests that women who are at increased risk of breast cancer due to polymorphisms in genes associated with the disease may especially benefit from high soy isoflavone intake.' 

Despite this, it's always best to be cautious and consult with your GP before taking any new dietary or health supplements - as they will be able to advise you based on your specific case history.


Can the supplement help me if I have damaged my bladder from surgery, specifically from a Hysterectomy?

The proposed mechanism of action for our supplements is to support the strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles. Since childbirth and surgery can weaken this muscle - our supplement should support in re-strengthening. You can read more about this on the Our Science page.

Will Jude Bladder Strength Supplements help if I have bladder cancer?

I’m really sorry to hear about your diagnosis. If you have bladder cancer, it's very important to consult your doctor before taking any supplements, including Jude's bladder strength supplement. Your health and safety are our top priority, and your doctor can provide the best guidance based on your specific situation. 

While the ingredients in our supplement are generally safe, they might not be suitable for everyone. In general, if you have symptoms of overactive bladder or stress incontinence then the supplement may be able to help with those two conditions but it cannot cure or treat bladder cancer. 
We would always recommend having a quick chat with your GP or urologist/oncologist before starting any new dietary supplement, as they will be able to advise you based on your specific medical history and circumstances.
