Hormone replacement therapy for women with type 1 diabetes mellitus

Cochrane Systematic Reviews

Mackay L, Kilbride L, Adamson KA, Chisholm J.

This review aimed to assess what effect the management of menopausal women with type 1 diabetes may have on a woman with type 1 diabtetes.

Generally it was found there was a lack of evidence around the use of HRT in women with type 1 diabetes. The one study that has been undertaken in this area is underpowered. More RCTs are required in the area to examine the impact of HRT on glycaemic control and cardiovascular outcomes.
