Testosterone and Heart Health

Testosterone therapy has been controversial, with worries that treatment will increase Cardiovascular risk. However, recent studies are finding the opposite, and instead, are finding that men with LOW testosterone have a HIGHER incidence of cardiovascular events.

Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased libido, vasomotor instability, and decreased bone mineral density. Other symptoms may include depression, fatigue, erectile dysfunction, and reduced muscle strength/mass. In both men and women, testosterone levels decline with age. Inversely, the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks, increases with age. With these recent study findings, supporting the use of testosterone supplementation to get levels back within optimal range, it can now be said that testosterone hormone replacement will not only help with the numerous symptoms mentioned above, but also is essential in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Testosterone is cardioprotective!
