Testosterone Weekly

Testosterone Weekly is an ongoing weekly (or almost) update about testosterone and testosterone replacement therapy.

This article shows that long-term testosterone replacement clients:

  • Have a reduced cardiovascular disease risk
  • Have a reduced mortality (that is a pretty difficult endpoint to achieve!)
  • Have a reduced prostate cancer risk 

The reduction in prostate cancer risk is dramatic - 40%. This is one of just a few trials to show this. 

There was a slight increase in cardiovascular risks in short term clients (10%), but this may be due to the limited number of events in this.

Of course, the comments once again state that more trials need to be conducted. At this point, I am beginning to wonder if any study or trial would suffice for the naysayers. Perhaps they just want more studies to get some funding.
