Global menopause summit concludes HRT is safe for healthy women entering menopause
Date:5/19/2008

i>Of women randomly assigned in the WHI study, 36% had hypertension, 49% were current or past smokers, and 34% were clinically obese, which are all factors which would contribute to increased health problems.

In addition, the reporting of the study did not make clear that different HRTs have different risks and benefits, but most importantly the most recent reports from WHI have clearly shown that the age at which HRT is started is critical. Most experts now agree that the fall-out from the initial WHI results has led to public concern about HRT use, which is not justified by the clinical evidence.

The Zrich Summit

The Zrich Summit was called to review the current evidence, and to review the risks and benefits of using HRT for women in early menopause. Forty of the worlds leading menopause experts met to review public perceptions, risks and benefits. Their main conclusions were:

Cardiovascular issues

Combined oestrogen and progesterone do not increase chronic heart disease risk in healthy women aged 50-59; oestrogen alone actually decreases risk in this group.

Breast cancer

Certain types of HRT (combined oestrogen and progesterone) can lead to a slightly increased risk of breast cancer. However, this is minimal in relation to other breast cancer risk factors. Women with no prior use of estrogen alone actually had no increased risk for breast cancer in the WHI. Short-to-medium term use of oestrogen-only HRT does not show this effect. The key message is that each woman should discuss her general health, and risk factors such as a family history, smoking, etc., with her own doctor, but generally healthy women (i.e. with no other breast cancer risk factors) entering the menopause should have no fears.

Bone

HRT is effective in maintaining bone health in 50 to 59-year-old postmenopausal women.

Cognition

HRT does not impair cognition in h
