Benefits of HRT

Hormone Replacement Therapy has many benefits. It reduces the symptoms associated with menopause. It also reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases in women. Know about other benefits of HRT.

Reduces psychomotor symptoms

HRT is known to reduce anxiety, irritability, depression, lethargy, flushes and night sweats, headaches, forgetfulness, crying spells associated with the climacteric (menopause). 

Lowers risk of cardiovascular diseases

HRT is known to reduce (LDL) Low Density Lipoprotein cholesterol levels apparently by increasing LDL catabolism that in turn results from an increase in LDL receptor activity. With HRT, (HDL) levels rise particularly the HDL2 subfraction, thus, HRT has a vasoactive effect for cardioprotective action. 

Low dose HRT (estrogens) may also have beneficial effects on the coagulation system. In addition to its cardiovascular protective effect, HRT (Estradiol) also improves existing cardiovascular disease reducing the frequency of angina and migraine. One study suggests improved long-term survival in myocardial infarction. 

Positively affects diabetic women

Estrogens affect glucose and insulin metabolism by improving insulin sensitivity and elimination.  In women with diabetes estradiol - 17b (beta) has been shown to potentiate the vasodialation. Hyper-insulinaemia or higher insulin levels may directly increase the risk of CHD by promoting atherogenesis and indirectly by influencing lipid metabolism. Elevated insulin concentrations are associated with increased triglycerides, increased HDL and HDL2 and increased LDL. 

Prevents osteoporosis

Estrogen Replacement Therapy has positive effects on Bone Mass Density (BMD). Two years of estrogen replacement therapy increases spine BMD by 5-10%. Estrogen Replacement Therapy has positive effects on the genital tract atrophy.
