Customer Question

Dr. Phil,Some people are resistant to tamoxifen (I'm one of them). So I take Aromatase Inhibitors.
Do you think that the reason they only work 50% of the time is because some people are resistant and their aromatase does NOT get stopped? I would think if that were true that they would do estrogen or aromatase tests to check for this. What do you think? Should I worry that my aromatase is not being inhibited?
