Pioneering research is at the heart of Vira Health
Robust research underpins all of our work at Vira Health. We partner with leading companies and academic institutions to expand our understanding of the impact of menopause on health, employment, and other topics.
Testosterone therapy for menopause
Testosterone is recommended as a treatment for women who complain of low libido where hormonal and behavioral treatments have not improved symptoms. To date, there are limited large scale longitudinal studies that explore wider symptom improvement after taking testosterone. We analyze associations of natural levels of testosterone and menopause symptoms in a large, longitudinal cohort, the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN).
The return on investment (ROI) for menopause care is likely inadequately quantified. Considering the diversity of symptoms and the implications for long-term health, the savings could be far greater than currently understood. We are building an economic model to show the expected economic savings associated with better menopause care to support increased take-up of the benefit.
