Testosterone: Beneficial for Male Menopause and the Prostate

April 5, 2017

Testosterone: Beneficial for Male Menopause and the ProstateOur society is very familiar with the term menopause, women who are going through “the change of life.”   However, men also experience hormonal changes as they age.  The symptoms of male menopause can wreak just as much havoc, adversely affecting their relationships, careers, health and overall quality of life.

Male menopause, also referred to as andropause, is the time in a man’s life when his testosterone levels decline.  The common symptoms of male menopause are fatigue, weight gain, depression, brain fog, memory loss, sleep disturbances, and low libido.  Low testosterone levels are also associated with diabetes, heart failure, obesity and osteoporosis.

Testosterone Replacement Does Not Increase Risk of Prostate Cancer
While the solution for male menopause is to replenish the declining levels of testosterone, there has been concern that this could increase the risk of prostate cancer. Research, however, disproves the link between testosterone replacement therapy and prostate cancer. A 15 year study of 1,500 patients by the Institute of Urology at University College Hospital, London, found that raising testosterone levels could be beneficial to the prostate. (1)

Research reveals that with proper clinical monitoring, testosterone treatment is safe for the prostate and does not increase the risk of prostate cancer. (1, 5) Research has failed to demonstrate an association between prostate cancer and high testosterone levels. (2, 3)

The Endogenous Hormones and Prostate Cancer Collaborative Group published an analysis of 18 prospective studies on serum androgen levels and prostate cancer risk in 2008. The study’s main finding indicated that there was no association between prostate cancer and pre-diagnostic serum levels of free testosterone, total testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), androstenedione, DHEA-S, Adiol-G, free estradiol, or total estradiol. In fact, older men with the highest risk of prostate cancer have the lowest serum testosterone levels. (4)

Young men typically have the highest levels of testosterone and the lowest incidence of prostate cancer. Intuition tells you that testosterone is necessary for optimal health.  If you are experiencing the symptoms of male menopause, consider replenishing your testosterone levels with bioidentical testosterone.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
