Hormone Replacement For Women

Medicine – women. A study released today suggests a mild increase in the likelihood of dementia in women who take HRT – “hormone replacement therapy” – specifically, those who take the commonly prescribed combination of estrogen and progestin. And earlier study found increased risk for breast cancer, heart attack, stroke, and blood clots in women taking the hormones. UCLA’s Dr Jeffery Cummings was quoted in the LA Times as saying, “Unequivocally, we’ll now recommend that estrogen plus progestin does not offer a benefit and may be a risk factor.” (Source LA Times, 5/28/03, original research published in JAMA.)
