There is nothing strange if a women passing through the phase of menopause complaints about memory loss because it is considered a normal outcome in most of the menopausal women. However, researchers believe that hormone therapy may be used to solve this problem because through several studies it has been proved that hormone therapy, which is commonly used to treat problems like hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms, may also prove beneficial for treating memory loss.
The following statement by Yolanda Smith, MD, MS, of the University of Michigan Health System throws some more light on this.
Our findings suggest that even short-term use of hormone therapy for symptoms like hot flashes may be altering brain function in a positive way.
No doubt, if we look at the brighter side of this therapy, we come across various advantages but efforts should also be made to churn out the side effects of this therapy.
