Are you looking for testosterone replacement therapy doctors?  Do you need the best options for testosterone therapy?  It’s a common thing nowadays as recent studies show a generational decline in the testosterone levels among men.  The general trend in the rise of testosterone replacement therapy does not seem to be attributable to health and lifestyle changes either, since in general, better health food options exist today than in past generations.    

During a recent study, the testosterone in the blood of a 60-year-old in 1989 was higher than that in a different 60-year-old measured in 1995.  The same phenomenon was observed over a wide range of ages as well.

Normally, a woman faces menopause as they age in the mid-forties.  Now men are experiencing something similar.  Andropause as a result of our primary hormone, testosterone being too low.      

A report from a long-term study that evaluated changes in serum testosterone on a large population of men proves that the testosterone levels in American men have rapidly declined for the past two decades. The rise in this hormonal deficit calls for a men to get tested and establish baseline testosterone levels and seek out the the best options for testosterone therapy with qualified doctor.

A male aging study consisting of randomly selected men of age bracket 45-79 was conducted in Massachusetts. The selected men were from Boston. The Male Aging study was to measure the variation in testosterone level between the participants at different times and generations.

  • Bhasin S. Secular decline in male reproductive function: is manliness threatened? J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2007;92:44-45.

Unfortunately, the researchers were not able to definitively put a finger on the reason why men today have lower testosterone levels.  But the important finding from the studies really is the conclusion;  Men today do indeed have much lower testosterone levels.  The rise in men seeking testosterone therapy is not a fad.  It is based on a medical need that these studies have clearly pointed out.  Men today do not feel the way past generations men felt, in part to this discovered Low T levels.

The researchers identified additional factors that increase the risk of testosterone decline are other lifestyle factors, such as increasing use of tight underclothing, high room temperatures in American homes and offices during the past decades, decreased physical exercise with an increase in smoking.  We also feel that the sharp increase in medications that primary care doctors prescribe have caused a drop in testosterone and imbalanced hormone levels in both men and women.

A decline in testosterone level may lead to higher integrated problems as well. Therefore, doctors recommend men get baseline hormone levels tested at age 30 to decide if testosterone replacement therapy is indicated.

Today, testosterone replacement therapy doctors implement a practical approach to assess the need and treat men.  Like in the research done in Boston, blood samples were taken and extensive exams and interviews are conducted.  The therapy itself is very simple, safe and inexpensive.

Just another reason to get in shape – Excess weight increases risk of prostate cancer death

Excess weight increases risk of prostate cancer death

November 14, 2013.   An article published online on August 6, 2013 in the journal Obesity Research & Clinical Practice reveals a greater likeliness of dying from prostate cancer among overweight or obese men in comparison with those of normal weight.

The case-control study involved 751 Kaiser Permanente patients who underwent radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. Three hundred twenty-three men who died from the disease were compared to 428 matched survivors.  The men were classified as healthy, overweight or obese according to body mass index (BMI) at the time of diagnosis.

Nearly 43% of the subjects had a BMI of 25 or more (categorized as overweight). Among those who died from prostate cancer, 30% were considered obese, with a body mass index of 30 or more, in comparison with 22% of the control group. Researchers Reina Haque, PhD and colleagues observed that obese men had an adjusted 50% greater risk of dying from prostate cancer than those with a healthy BMI.  The greatest impact of being overweight or obese was observed among those with Gleason scores of 8 or more, which indicate aggressive disease.

“We found among patients undergoing surgical treatment for prostate cancer, weight at time of diagnosis is more strongly correlated with prostate cancer survival than many other factors researchers have studied in the past, including some prostate cancer treatments,” stated Dr Haque, who is a researcher at Kaiser Permanente Southern California’s Department of Research & Evaluation in Pasadena, California. “Moving forward, we are hoping future studies will examine the effect of weight loss and other lifestyle modifications on prostate cancer mortality.”   Source:Lifeextension Foundation
