ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: HORMONE THERAPY


As we age our hormone levels drop.


Two key hormone therapies are currently promoted

1. HRT to assist women with menopause

2. Growth hormone stimulating compounds [HGH]

 

Hormone Replacement Therapy [HRT]

In spite of controversial moves against HRT, 40% of postmenopausal American women are on hormones. Hormone therapy comes in two types:

  1. Estrogen alone (ERT) or
  2. Combination of estrogen and progestin, known as HRT

Numerous studies have shown that taking estrogen after menopause helps protect women against osteoporosis and is also proposed to protect against cardiovascular disease. And hormone therapy can counteract unpleasant (and occasionally unbearable) menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats, and mood swings.

During the five years, women on HRT had slightly more heart attacks, stroke, and blood clots. But the increase in risk was very small. And there were no extra deaths.

HRT taken for more than four years slightly increased the risk of breast cancer.

Though HRT helped prevent fractures, the effect was small and would last only as long as you take the hormones.

Women on HRT had a slightly lower incidence of colon cancer.
