Can HRT Lower Cholesterol & Prevent Heart Disease?

Post menopausal women have some health concerns, not the least of which is the need to lower cholesterol. Recent studies of the cholesterol levels in older women seem to indicate that cholesterol is lowered slightly for some older women who undergo Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Unfortunately, still the incidence of heart disease is not as greatly affected – at least not the way they would like.

The specific study examining postmenopausal women, called the Heart and Estrogen/Progestin Replacement Study (HERS), was conducted by the National Heart and Lung Institute. It found that the women on HRT had a “modest” drop in the Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol. It also raised the High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol which is the good cholesterol. Both raising HDL and lowering LDL cholesterol are important in lowering overall blood cholesterol levels to the desirable range of under 200 mg/dl.

Because of the other results of the study the conclusion was that HRT should not be used as a means to lower cholesterol. The negative results far outweighed the benefits of lower cholesterol for these women. More women in the HRT group, for example, had more blood clots, gallbladder disease, and in the first year, more cases of heart disease. By the fourth and fifth years of the study, however, the number of incidences of heart disease dropped for the women on HRT.

Anyone at any age can lower cholesterol without drugs, hormones, or drastic diets. A well balanced and enjoyable diet that allows for some indulgences in moderation is enough to lower cholesterol without prescription drugs. The important aspect of diet is balancing certain nutrients and ensuring the consumption of enough of specific vitamins and minerals.
