The Effects Of Hormone Therapy Questioned

Latest research finds postmenopausal hormone therapy: Despite lowering LDL, or bad, cholesterol, raising HDL, or good, cholesterol, and improving // fasting glucose and insulin resistance, women with diabetes who take hormones have greater narrowing of their arteries that could be putting them at risk for a heart attack or stroke.

The reason, report researchers, is that hormones in these women appear to exacerbate inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein and fibrinogen, both of which are associated with cardiovascular disease.

The findings are based on data from 321 women taking part in a larger study on estrogen and vitamins. One hundred and forty were diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes. All of the women showed evidence of heart disease on angiography, a test that X-rays the heart vessels. Some of the women were given hormones (estrogen alone or estrogen plus progestin) while others received a sham treatment for comparison purposes.

Researchers conclude saying that their results suggest a slight improvement in insulin resistance and fasting glucose levels with hormone therapy , hence they say that this warrants additional study in this area .
