Hormone Replacement Therapy – HRT

It is recommended that all women being treated with Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) have their blood pressure monitored at regular intervals

Hormone Replacement Therapy

A recent study indicated that blood pressure does not increase significantly with hormone replacement therapy in most women with and without high blood pressure, hypertension.

However, a few women may experience a rise in blood pressure attributable to oestrogen therapy.

Therefore, it is recommended that all women treated with hormone replacement therapy have their blood pressure monitored more frequently after such therapy is started. Discuss this with your health professional, and arrange to have your blood pressure monitored at regular intervals.

Do You Have High Blood Pressure?


Then you need to read this book, by New Zealand author, Dr David Lovell-Smith.

In this book, Dr David Lovell-Smith describes how his patients successfully used diet, lifestyle changes, and Transcendental Meditation to bring their blood pressure down.

This book offers new hope and insight for those with high blood pressure but it is not for hypertensives alone. The knowledge which Dr Lovell-Smith presents in his book is timely and relevant, and its exposition is long overdue.
