HRT Could Reduce Risk Of Alzheimers

Research by scientists has indicated that women who embark on hormone replacement therapy within five years of the menopause could cut the risk of suffering from Alzheimers disease in later years. The study was conducted among over 1500 women aged sixty five and over and lasted for some eleven years. Throughout the term of the study 176 women developed Alzheimers, leading researchers to conclude that starting on HRT within five years of the menopause could reduced the risk of suffering from the disease by thirty per cent. No change was observed among women who started HRT more than five years after menopoause.
