Limitations of the menopause treatment study

The researchers noted several limitations to their study:

  • They used the most common hormone therapy treatment in the study. However, there may be additional formulations that could provide different or better results.
  • Non-study calcium and vitamin D supplements could have affected the results.
  • The low-fat diet did not achieve the target of 20% of total calories and the scientists could not distinguish the effects of reducing fat from the impact of increasing fruits, vegetables, and grains.
