Rates of Dementia Increase Among Women on Hormone Therapy


Older women taking combination hormone therapy had twice the rate of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, compared with women who did not take the medication, according to new findings reported in the May 28, 2003 Journal of the American Medical Association. The study found the heightened risk of developing dementia in a study of women 65 and older taking Prempro, a particular form of estrogen plus progestin hormone therapy.

"Because of possible harm in some areas and lack of a demonstrated benefit in others, we have concluded that combination hormone therapy should not be prescribed at this time for older, postmenopausal women to maintain or improve cognitive function," says Judith Salerno, M.D., of the National Institute on Aging at the National Institutes of Health.

If you're still on conventional hormone replacement therapy, please consult with one of our physicians. We have some excellent alternatives to offer you!
