Recent Research Concludes:
Testosterone Replacement Therapy Lowers Heart Attack Risk
You may have heard the warnings about the risks of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).
It’s risky. It is natural and usual for aging men to lose testosterone so any attempt at restoring the manly hormone is somehow “unnatural.” It increases the risk of you having a heart attack or a stroke.
But are these warnings really true?
The results of a recent study have concluded that they are not!
A recent study concluded that boosting testosterone in men with low levels of the hormone significantly lowered the risk of both heart attack and stroke.
The European Association of Urology Congress research spanned a ten-year period and consisted of approximately 800 male participants from Germany and Qatar who were currently suffering from hypogonadism also known as low testosterone (“Low-T”).
Also, the subjects had family histories, weight issues, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes that elevated them to the high-risk category for cardiovascular disease.
In addition, the participants must have been experiencing the symptoms of low testosterone: erectile dysfunction, lower libido, weight gain, depression, mental fog, and decreased appetite.
Slightly over half the participants received long-term TRT, and this gave researchers the perfect opportunity to compare the men on testosterone with the men who did not receive testosterone therapy.
All of the subjects received counseling on lifestyle modifications and improvements: nutritional advice, physical fitness, smoking cessation, and lowering alcohol consumption. Once the study began the men were monitored every three months.
The study results
The results of the study so far were surprising and somewhat unexpected. Of 412 men who received testosterone replacement, 16 died and none suffered a heart attack or stroke!
Of the 393 men who chose not to take testosterone supplements, 74 died, 70 had a heart attack and 59 suffered a stroke.
Read those numbers again and let them sink in.
Here is another conclusion from the research. There was an age difference in the groups: the TRT participants were an average of six years younger than the other group (57.7 in the testosterone group vs 63.7 in the group not taking TRT), and this had to be considered.
But even after factoring in the age difference, the results remained the same. For men under 55 in the TRT group, the risk of heart attack and stroke plummeted by 25 percent; for men over 60 in the same group, the risk was lowered by 15 percent.
More good news
The benefits received by the testosterone group were not just a lower risk of a major adverse cardiovascular event – as beneficial and life-saving as that was – but they also experienced significant improvement in several other health metrics: the pounds and inches were vaporized, their sleeping muscles woke up, their cholesterol levels and blood pressure both took a nose-dive, their liver function improved, and their diabetes was brought under control.
Professor Omar Aboumarzouk, from the Hamad Medical Corporation in Qatar, and a lead investigator in the study stated: "Given that all these men would normally have been expected to suffer a heart attack or stroke in the next five to ten years, with no other intervention, it was a real surprise to see no cardiovascular events at all in the group on testosterone therapy. It's clear that this treatment can significantly reduce the risks in this particular group."
However, there is one significant caveat. The researchers strongly maintained that TRT alone is not the magic elixir and should only be administered to patients suffering from Low-T.
"Testosterone can be seriously harmful if taken by men with normal levels, or who function perfectly well with reduced levels of the hormone," says Professor Aboumarzouk. "While men need testosterone for certain psychological and biological functions, only those with low levels who display other symptoms are likely to benefit from testosterone therapy.
"For those at high risk of heart attack and stroke, who are deficient in testosterone, it's likely that bringing the hormone back to normal levels helps them to maximize the benefits of other steps necessary to improve their overall health. This includes increasing exercise levels, eating healthier food, giving up smoking, and reducing alcohol consumption.
"We believe that physicians treating patients with low testosterone, who are at high risk of heart attack or stroke, should consider testosterone therapy as one aspect of their treatment."
The study began in 2004 and is still ongoing.
Dr. Maarten Albersen, a Member of the EAU Scientific Office, from Leuven University in Belgium said: "The long-term cardiovascular risks or benefits of testosterone therapy are still unclear, because of conflicting results from previous research. This new study has shown a reduction in major cardiovascular events and mortality in men who received testosterone therapy, compared to men who opted not to receive this treatment.
"However, these were men with a medium risk of heart attack or stroke, and those receiving testosterone were younger and had a slightly lower risk at the start of the study. The study was long enough to see differences in the rate of cardiovascular events. However, the numbers involved and the fact that the trial was not randomized mean it's still difficult to draw any hard conclusions.
A new trial is now underway, aiming to recruit 6000 participants, and this should provide definitive answers on the cardiovascular risks or even benefits of hormone therapy in men with low testosterone.”
The key takeaways
The key takeaways of this research are simple: Hypogonadism is real...deadly real...and a serious threat to your continued good health and well-being.
However, fortunately, there is another crucial takeaway: Testosterone Replacement Therapy works! That much should be obvious from the results you have just read. The scare tactics and hysterical warnings from the law firms, the sensationalist media, and who-knows-what-else have been put under the microscope of precise measurement – and were found to be just what they sounded like: hysteria.
There is still another takeaway from this research. Notice how Professor Aboumarzouk strongly stressed that TRT should only be considered if a man is suffering from low testosterone. He added that testosterone can be “seriously harmful” if taken by men with normal testosterone levels and even men who are functioning well with lower testosterone.
The final takeaway from this study was that before beginning testosterone replacement therapy the men were counseled on lifestyle modifications and improvements.
This is the exact methodology of our clinics
At our hormone replacement clinics, we believe in a holistic, comprehensive approach to restoring and maintaining your good health. This includes everything from developing a nutrition plan, stress reduction, the correct physical fitness routine for your age and condition, proper supplementation, and, of course, the precise hormone replacement regimen.
As the researchers did in this study, we continually monitor our clients for the efficiency and safety of our hormone treatments. We look at our treatments as a team effort, and, working together, we can derail the plans of “old-man-aging.”
There is no shame in wanting to battle disease and aging. Improving both the quantity and quality of life is one of medicines' most formidable challenges. But there has never been a time in recorded history that treating aging as a disease is so crucial.
Think about this. According to a recent report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, anyone turning 65 will spend anywhere between $142,000 and $176,000 on long-term care for the remainder of their life.
If that weren’t bad enough, consider this: by 2065 it is estimated that fifteen per cent of Americans over 65 with be suffering from at least two disabling conditions, and may be more, which will dramatically increase the need for daily living assistance.
Take a moment to consider the cost of medical conditions brought on by aging. Not just the financial cost, but the terrible toll taken on friends and family caregivers. Most agree that it is unmeasurable.
Now envision a future where people can stave off the many afflictions caused by aging and remain healthy and independent for decades longer than they do now. The economic benefits are limitless.
And hormone replacement therapy is a vital tool in this life-and-death campaign!
