As a disease topic Men's Health covers a broad set of issues affecting men of all ages. Some of the issues requiring greater focus and more thorough dissemination of information amongst the healthcare community, are those that have the potential to go undetected in the early stages. These include, hypogonadism and erectile dysfunction.
Early detection and more regular health checks of these diseases, not only improve prognosis and efficacy of treatment outcomes, but also quality of life.
- August 2014 - Testosterone Treatment and Heart Attack Risk
- New study shows testosterone treatment can even be beneficial
- Testosterone deficiency is associated with increased body weight/obesity/waist circumference, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, inflammation, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, erectile dysfunction and increased risk of mortality.
- Testosterone therapy beneficially impacts multiple risk factors for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, conditions that are associated with testosterone deficiency.
- The most recent study reported here shows that testosterone therapy does not increase risk of heart attack, and that it actually may protect against heart attack in high-risk populations. This is in line with a large body of research showing beneficial effects of testosterone therapy in hypogonadal men.
- Three large meta-analyses specifically focusing on identifying potential adverse effects of testosterone treatment report no significant increases in cardiovascular risk.
- A review of all testosterone trials up to 2012 found that testosterone therapy in patients with preexisting cardiovascular conditions, the effect on disease markers has typically been either neutral or actually beneficial.
