The Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine published a study regarding hormone therapy use in 50-55 year old postmenopausal women and their cognitive ability. The study found that hormone therapy in younger women showed less memory loss compared to older participants. Previous trials suggested that women 65 years or older experienced lasting memory problems from hormone therapy when using it to treat menopausal symptoms. Researchers of current trial stated that hormone therapy may benefit younger women to reduce menopausal symptoms and still preserve cognitive functions. What adverse effects do you typically notice in your patients taking hormone replacement therapy?
