Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Objective: This study evaluating the lipid profile in women in post menopause using the hormone therapy (HT) with implants of estradiol and testosterone. Method: One year prospective cohort with 122 patients separated in group 1, not using HT, group 2 starting the use of HT, and group 3 with prior use of implants of estradiol and testosterone. All patients performed serum dosages of total cholesterol, HDL and triglycerides, in the beginning of the study and after 1 year. Discussion: The use of E and T implants showed some statistically significant decrease in TC at the beginning of the HT and some decrease in LDL in the group using HT. In the group without HT there was no difference in lipid profile.
