Study: Long-term hormone therapy use raises risks
New results from a long-term study of women looks into the risks and benefits of hormone therapy.
Studies of hormone therapy in a large “women’s health initiative” were stopped when researchers discovered the health risks were too great to keep pursuing the study.
A long-term follow-up of those women in the trial is in.
It confirms that hormone therapy increases the risk for stroke, blood clots and other problems.
However, risks were lessened among younger women and may be appropriate for some women in managing their menopause symptoms in the short-term.
