The objective of this study was to determine the metabolic effects of estrogen replacement therapy in postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes. Twenty-five postmenopausal, type 2 diabetic women completed a randomized, blinded, cross-over trial of conjugated equine estrogen, 0.625 mg/day, vs. placebo for 8 weeks, separated by a 4-week washout period. When compared with 8 weeks of placebo, estrogen reduced fasting serum glucose (7.2 +/- 0.3 vs. 8.4 +/- 0.4 mmol/L, P = 0.0003), glycated… CONTINUE READING
