Dr. Berga discusses if hormone replacement therapy is worthy of greater research and investigation.
So it’s been a bad few years for hormone investigation because people took the Women’s Health Initiative as first gospel and then to mean that there were no further question for neither to be answered. In truth, it was just the beginning and while it answered a few questions, it actually raised many more than it answered, like any good study.
So, now we need to define again the important areas for investigation to think about the knowledge gaps and there are tons of questions, tons of knowledge gaps that need to be addressed, and now we actually have all this new discovery around hormone action, so it’s a good time to revisit these areas.
