Hormone Therapy May Not Affect Women’s Cognitive Function

A new study in JAMA Internal Medicine shows that, despite claims that postmenopausal hormone therapy with conjugated equine estrogens (CEEs) can help fight dementia or hurt women’s cognition, the treatment actually has no significant effect in that regard. The study, which looked at 1326 women, found that “CEE-based therapies produced no overall sustained benefit or risk to cognitive function when administered to postmenopausal women aged 50 to 55 years.”
