huge news.http://www.medpagetoday.com/MeetingCoverage/NAMS/35106?utm_s......Hormone therapy may actually help the heart in some respects for newly menopausal women, a randomized trial showed....Yes, I saw that. And the group that received estrogen and progesterone was actually, finally, given prometrium (bioidentical) rather than the synthetic and similar but not what our body actually works with version.In connection with that, I also came across a report that appeared in Feb. finding that when starting at a good time, long-time (years) therapy is fine.And the overall conclusion in both studies is that hormone replacement therapy needs to be individualized, and that there's been a lot of unfortunate bad press that has created significant misunderstandings.I came across a discussion a while ago (don't recall the reference now, but I think I had posted it at some point on the Women's Health board) discussing the WHI and the early negative reports on HRT. And in fact, the data were really cherry-picked. There was much dissention among those conducting the study, but those who were anti HRT pulled their weight and shut the other voices out. sheila
