Hormone Replacement has a myriad of benefits for men and women. It is a highly researched treatment option that is changing the way women and men think about aging, and, more importantly, the way they look and feel. A new study in Finland on hormone replacement treatment and Alzheimer Disease is backing up a previous US study done in 2012, reporting that hormone therapy is associated with a reduced risk for Alzheimer Disease.
The Study: Hormone Therapy and Alzheimer Disease
The 2017 study was done on women only. Alzheimer Disease is the most common form of dementia and it affects more women than men (1). This may be related to the fact that women have a longer life expectancy than men, but there may also be a correlation with the decline in estrogen that occurs during menopause.The researchers of this study sent questionnaires to women aged 47-56 years, residing in one province in Finland from 1989 to 2009, every fifth year.
The results showed that estrogen use was not associated with a risk for Alzheimer’s risk, but it also showed that long-term self-reported postmenopausal hormone therapy was associated with reduced Alzheimer’s risk.This research doesn’t provide strong evidence for a protective association between postmenopausal hormone replacement treatment and Alzheimer Disease, but there was indeed a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s among those with long-term hormone therapy use.
