In women, the prevention or management of diseases and disorders particular to middle-age, as well as those that do not present until later life, requires a substantially improved knowledge base to differentiate those conditions whose causes stem from ovarian hormone insufficiency (and thus are treatable by hormone therapy) from those that do not.
