Subject: Testosterone Therapy May Have Benefits, But Risks Too
Low testosterone can dim a man's sex drive, performance in bed, energy, and motivation. It can also have some harmful effects. When needed, testosterone replacement therapy can boost T levels back to normal and return him to the man he used to be. Still, there are also risks to TRT, and the long-term safety isn't clear. Here's what men need to know.
- Testosterone treatment can boost bone density and reduce anemia in older men.
- It might also open the door to future heart risks, a new set of trials suggests.
- the trials also found that men receiving testosterone treatment experienced a significantly greater increase in arterial plaque.
"All told, the Testosterone Trials seem to indicate that the best use of testosterone therapy is for treatment of decreased sexual function in men with so-called “low T” (low testosterone levels), said Dr. Thomas Gill."
