hormone replacement therapy[edit]

to me this seems entirely guessable from its components -- Liliana 23:20, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Keep as a set phrase. Isn't it specific to particular hormones and a particular set of patients also.--Dmol 23:39, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
I thought the same, but surprisingly, no, it is not specific at all. It can refer to all hormones and all sorts of patients! -- Liliana 23:52, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
If there is sufficient usage to indicate this specific meaning, I think it should be kept and the definition changed to match, even if this is not the "official" sense of the term.--Dmol 17:44, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Delete if this is correct. Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV 14:33, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Keep medical term for a disease reeks of a proper nounLucifer 10:37, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
It's not a disease, it's a cure. Of what does it reek now? --Hekaheka 19:21, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
Unsure. My relative gets insulin multiple times a day because she doesn't produce it herself. I've never heard anyone say she's on (or getting) hormone replacement therapy.​—msh210 (talk) 17:36, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Well the current definition says "A therapy that replaces hormones". Maybe we need to roll some dice at Google Books and get a few quotations to clear up the meaning? -- Liliana 15:21, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Kept. — Ungoliant (Falai) 22:12, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
