North St. 825-7555 Presented by Larry D. Mann Administrator SLOWING MEMORY LOSS WITH ESTROGEN Postmenopausal women may be able to slow the normal age-related decline in memory by taking estrogen. According to a study from the National Institute on Aging, researchers found that women who were on estrogen-replacement therapy (ERT) performed better on tests to gauge their short-term visual memory than women who never received treatment. While previous studies have shown that verbal memory may be affected by ERT use, this is one of the first studies to document an effect on visual memory. However, the results are preliminary. Before experts can suggest the use of ERT to slow memory decline or prevent Alzheimer's disease, more research must be done. ERT certainly looks promising. This week's column provides hopeful news on slowing memory loss through estrogen-replacement therapy.
