61. Testosterone and Cardiovascular Health: Safety of Treatment of Hypogonadism. (PubMed)

Testosterone and Cardiovascular Health: Safety of Treatment of Hypogonadism. Controversy has arisen over the issue of the cardiovascular safety of testosterone.The aim of this article is to examine the evidence as to the cardiovascular safety involved with the administration of testosterone.A literature review was performed with regard to cardiovascular safety of testosterone.The main outcome measure was to evaluate the available evidence as to cardiovascular safety and risk of testosterone.A (...) handful of recently published and widely discussed manuscripts have suggested that administration of testosterone replacement therapy increases the frequency of adverse cardiovascular events. In contrast, there have been recent clinical reports suggesting that testosterone is either safe or actually reduces cardiovascular events and mortality. All of these studies-both those suggesting that testosterone has adverse effects, as well as those suggesting it has positive effects on the cardiovascular

Effect of Testosterone Treatment on Glucose Metabolism in men With Type 2 Diabetes: A Randomized Controlled Trial To determine whether testosterone therapy improves glucose metabolism in men with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and lowered testosterone.We conducted a randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled trial in 88 men with T2D, aged 35-70 years with an HbA1c ≤8.5% (69 mmol/mol), and a total testosterone level, measured by immunoassay, of ≤12.0 nmol/L (346 ng/dL). Participants were (...) randomly assigned to 40 weeks of intramuscular testosterone undecanoate (n = 45) or matching placebo (n = 43). All study subjects were included in the primary analysis. Seven men assigned to testosterone and six men receiving placebo did not complete the study. Main outcome measures were insulin resistance by homeostatic model assessment (HOMA-IR, primary outcome) and glycemic control by HbA1c (secondary outcome).Testosterone therapy did not improve insulin resistance (mean adjusted difference [MAD

Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy has provided relief (...) for symptomatic women. Less attention is paid to men, who also experience declines in their sex hormones. Decreased testosterone may explain many symptoms experienced by elderly men, such as poor sexual function and libido, decreased bone mineral density, fatigue, and decreased muscle mass and strength. Should physicians treat elderly men with testosterone replacement therapy? Late-onset hypogonadism, or “andropause,” is the gradual decline in testosterone levels in aging men.

72. Effect of testosterone supplementation with and without a dual 5α-reductase inhibitor on fat-free mass in men with suppressed testosterone production: a randomized controlled trial. (Full text)

Effect of testosterone supplementation with and without a dual 5α-reductase inhibitor on fat-free mass in men with suppressed testosterone production: a randomized controlled trial. Steroid 5α-reductase inhibitors are used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia and androgenic alopecia, but the role of 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in mediating testosterone's effects on muscle, sexual function, erythropoiesis, and other androgen-dependent processes remains poorly understood.To determine whether (...) testosterone's effects on muscle mass, strength, sexual function, hematocrit level, prostate volume, sebum production, and lipid levels are attenuated when its conversion to DHT is blocked by dutasteride (an inhibitor of 5α-reductase type 1 and 2).The 5α-Reductase Trial was a randomized controlled trial of healthy men aged 18 to 50 years comparing placebo plus testosterone enthanate with dutasteride plus testosterone enanthate from May 2005 through June 2010.Eight treatment groups received 50, 125, 300
