Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

Evidence for puberty blockers use very low, says NICE

EAN NOTE: Anyone paying attention will not be surprised that these poisonous drugs given to children actually do them harm. Many former so called "Trans-kids" have come forward to give testimony that the decisons made to take these drugs came from bad counseling. They now know that these "Woke" counselors were horribly misguided

The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) said existing studies of the drugs were small and "subject to bias and confounding".

The assessment of the evidence into the drugs was commissioned by NHS England.

The evidence for using puberty blocking drugs to treat young people struggling with their gender identity is "very low", an official review has found.

The NICE evidence review looked at what impact puberty blockers had on gender dysphoria, mental health - such as depression, anger and anxiety - and quality of life.

NICE, which provides national guidance and advice to improve health and social care, said: "The quality of evidence for these outcomes was assessed as very low certainty."

The review sought to find out how treatment with GnRH analogues compared in terms of clinical effectiveness with other interventions that may be offered to young people with gender dysphoria.

These include psychological support, social transitioning to the desired gender - where a young person will identify as another gender by perhaps changing their pronouns and clothing, but does not take medication - or no intervention at all.

'Little data'

NICE found it was difficult to draw conclusions from existing studies because of the way they had been designed.

They were "all small" and didn't have control groups, which are used to directly compare the effect of different treatments.
