HRT improves quality of life

22nd August 2008

A study published in the British Medical Journal suggests that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can improve the health-related quality of life of older women.

The authors of the WISDOM trial, which randomised 5,692 healthy women aged 50-69 from general practices in the UK, Australia and New Zealand to receive either combined HRT or placebo since 1999, says HRT guidelines should be reviewed in light of this evidence. Significantly fewer women in the HRT group reported hot flushes, aching joints and muscles, insomnia and vaginal dryness than in the placebo group.
