Testosterone Hormone Therapy for Menopause Improves Memory in Women

by Laura Ramirez on July 7, 2011

In a recent study, testosterone hormone therapy for menopause was shown to improve memory in post menopausal women when taken daily for a six month period. This is excellent news for women who have a family history of dementia. Since women have a higher chance of developing Alzheimer’s disesase than men and men have higher levels of testosterone, this hormone might well be the key to preventing the decline of cognitive skills that start for most people during the midlife transition when hormonal levels change dramatically.ᅠ

Hormone Therapy for Menopause Improves Memory and Quality of Life

Post-menopausal women have better memory after daily treatment with a testosterone spray for six months, a new preliminary study finds. The results will be presented Saturday at The Endocrine Society’s 93rd Annual Meeting in Boston…

The results of this exciting study showed that the women who received daily testosterone hormone therapy for menopause had healthy markers across all cognitive skills. Although further research needs to be done to confirm these results, it is important to note that testosterone may be a key factor in protecting women against dementia in middle age and beyond. Be sure to discuss these findings with your doctor. If you’re currently using testosterone therapy for menopause, please share the benefits that you’ve experienced, so other women can make an informed decision about this treatment.
