Re: Effect of hormone replacement therapy on cardiovascular events in recently postmenopausal women: randomised trial
I would welcome the authors' observations as to the metabolic profiles of participants in this analysis, noting the reservations by a number of other respondents. In particular HDL levels of 1.7, with glucose of 4.7 and health vitamin D levels seem discordant with values seen in everyday practice (in primary and secondary care, underscoring the suggestion that these are innately healthy women). These may in turn have ameliorated the potentially harmful effects of HRT in those taking it.
