Surviving menopause


“What about hormone therapy for women with diabetes? Several studies suggest that the use of hormone replacement therapy may help to improve the symptoms of menopause as well as improve overall glycemic control, Laine says. Women treated with hormone replacement therapy were shown to have higher levels of metabolism and increased insulin sensitivity. Women with T1D and preexisting heart disease should not receive hormone replacement therapy and should undergo careful monitoring by cardiology experts.”

Thought that was interesting.
