We believe informed patients make better patients. 

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Millions are affected by heart disease. To help prevent the devastating toll of heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Texas Heart Institute provides educational information related to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Is Hormone Replacement Therapy for Me?

…What IS a girl to do these days? 

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been used to treat menopausal symptoms and protect long-term health until large clinical trials showed greater health risks than benefits from HRT, particularly when given to older postmenopausal women. 

Although HRT is no longer recommended for disease prevention, such as heart disease or memory loss, further review of clinical trials and new evidence shows that it may be a good choice for certain women, depending on their risk factors.
