Studies presented at the European Association of Urology Congress indicate that supplementing testosterone significantly reduces heart attacks and strokes in men with abnormally low levels of the hormone. The health of men on testosterone therapy also improved with other measures.
The study states, “For people who are at high risk of heart attack and stroke who have testosterone deficiency, it is likely that bringing the hormone back to normal levels helps them to improve their overall health.” Helps maximize the benefits of other steps.” While men require testosterone for some psychological and biological functions, only those with low levels who exhibit other symptoms are likely to benefit from testosterone therapy.
For the study, the team included more than 800 men with testosterone deficiency whose family history, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, diabetes or weight put them at higher risk of heart attack or stroke. Only men with below normal testosterone levels, who also displayed symptoms of low testosterone, such as low mood, loss of appetite, depression, erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, or weight gain, were included in the research.
