Slide 13 - Why not take HRT? The Women’s Health Initiative study (large study on HRT for postmenopausal women) cancelled the arm of the study in which women were taking HRT (Estrogen/Progesterone combined) After 5 years women taking HRT had increases in several diseases. The risks of HRT were shown to outweigh the potential benefits (Slightly decreased incidences of colon cancer and hip fractures)
Slide 14 - Increased Risks of HRT (When taken for > 5 years) Heart Attack: 3.7/1000 women instead of 3 Stroke:2.9/1000 women instead of 2.1 Blood Clots in Legs or Lungs: 3.4/1000 instead of 2.6 Breast Cancer: 3.8/1000 instead of 3 But, decreased risk of osteoporosis and perhaps colorectal cancer JAMA 2002;288:872-881.
