Hormones — for KEEPS!

The results of the Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study (KEEPS) were released at the 23rd annual meeting of the North American Menopause Society in October 2012. The conclusion: Bio-identical hormones (estradiol and micronized progesterone) – started soon after the start of menopause – improved depression, anxiety, and cognitive function in healthy women. But, perhaps most importantly, bio-identical hormones did this without posing any cardiovascular disease risk, and were shown to be superior to synthetic conjugated equine estrogens (CEE). CEE are the form of hormones that were used in the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), a large government- sponsored study which found an increased risk of breast cancer associated with CEE, leading many women and health care professionals to seek information on options such as bioidentical hormones.
