Is Testosterone Supplementation the Answer in Older Men? – Clinical Correlations Search What Is Andropause? Is Testosterone Supplementation the Answer in Older Men?

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. It differs from menopause

64. 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 available with Trip Pro

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

Adverse events associated with testosterone administration. Testosterone supplementation has been shown to increase muscle mass and strength in healthy older men. The safety and efficacy of testosterone treatment in older men who have limitations in mobility have not been studied.Community-dwelling men, 65 years of age or older, with limitations in mobility and a total serum testosterone level of 100 to 350 ng per deciliter (3.5 to 12.1 nmol per liter) or a free serum testosterone level of less (...) than 50 pg per milliliter (173 pmol per liter) were randomly assigned to receive placebo gel or testosterone gel, to be applied daily for 6 months. Adverse events were categorized with the use of the Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities classification. The data and safety monitoring board recommended that the trial be discontinued early because there was a significantly higher rate of adverse cardiovascular events in the testosterone group than in the placebo group.A total of 209 men (mean

71. Effects of testosterone replacement in middle-aged men with dysthymia: a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial (Abstract)

Effects of testosterone replacement in middle-aged men with dysthymia: a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial Mid-life onset male dysthymic disorder (DD) seems to be a distinct clinical condition with limited therapeutic options. Testosterone replacement is mood-enhancing and has been proposed as an antidepressant therapy, though this strategy has received limited systematic study. We therefore conducted a six-week double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial in 23 men with DD (...) and with low or low-normal testosterone (T) level (i.e, screening total serum testosterone <350 ng/dL). Enrolled men were randomized to receive intramuscular injections of 200 mg of testosterone cypionate or placebo every 10 days. The primary outcome measures were the Clinical Global Impression (CGI) improvement score and the 21-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS) score.Twenty-three patients were randomized. The mean (SD) age of the enrolled patients was 50.6 (7.0) years and that of total

Short-term testosterone augmentation in male schizophrenics: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial Although there are few studies on the treatment of schizophrenia with testosterone, several indirect findings have suggested testosterone as a possible treatment modality for schizophrenia. To explore the therapeutic effect of testosterone augmentation of antipsychotic medication on symptoms in male patients with schizophrenia, the authors performed a placebo-controlled, double (...) -blind trial on 30 schizophrenic men, using either 5 g of 1% testosterone gel (Testogel; Besins Iscovesco, Paris, France) or a placebo added to a fixed dosage of antipsychotic medication over a period of 4 weeks with a 2-week washout period. In addition, to get additional information about the involvement of these reproductive hormones after testosterone augmentation, the authors evaluated several hormones such as total testosterone, free testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, estradiol

Testosterone for low libido in postmenopausal women not taking estrogen. The efficacy and safety of testosterone treatment for hypoactive sexual desire disorder in postmenopausal women not receiving estrogen therapy are unknown.We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled, 52-week trial in which 814 women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder were randomly assigned to receive a patch delivering 150 or 300 microg of testosterone per day or placebo. Efficacy was measured to week 24; safety (...) was evaluated over a period of 52 weeks, with a subgroup of participants followed for an additional year.
