    You are not at risk of developing Alzheimer’s with Hormone Replacement Therapy

    We can relate the life of women with water flowing in a river.

    While normal and constant hormone release signifies women being healthy and fertile, similarly rapid movement of hormones can be related to women’s menstrual and premenstrual issues.

    There are a lot of life-changing situations that women face during their lifetime. Menopause is one of such situations that no one can avoid.

    Though, some go through this phase rather smoothly than others. But, sometimes, this phase is associated with a number of severe consequences which drastically hampers their quality of lives.

    To deal with this condition, hormone replacement therapy is the most effective treatment. However, there are some misunderstandings regarding its long-term effects on the health of women.

    Earlier, there were reports where many researchers claimed that HRT could increase the risk of dementia or Alzheimer’s.

    However, these reports have recently been abolished by many reputed research institutions and doctors.

    Dr. Gleason
    The Women’s Health Initiative Memory Study (WHIMS) revealed some shocking data. Earlier, they confirmed that HRT is a potential risk factor for developing dementia or cognitive impairment.

    This study resulted in avoiding HRT therapies by millions of women.

    However, recently Dr. Gleason with her team presented their study after reviewing three earlier case studies at Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Chicago which was held in July 2018.

    Gleason and her team revealed that there are no adverse effects of HRT, especially when taken during the early stages of menopause.

    Many specialists had stopped using HRT as a healthcare aid in menopausal women. But, recent studies have favored its significant role in protecting brain tissues when started at right time.

    Maria Carrillo, Chief Scientific Officer at American Association, emphasized the fact that estrogen and progesterone can play a major role in reducing the chances of developing Alzheimer’s.

    This could be the reason why women with menopause are at risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
