Men – Protect Your Heart with This Hormone

February 24, 2022

Protect Your Heart with This Hormone

Men, are you worried about heart disease? Your doctor may have told you to eat a healthy diet and watch your cholesterol and blood pressure, but there’s an important factor that is often overlooked by conventional doctors. Did you know that optimal testosterone levels are protective of heart disease? Testosterone levels naturally decline as men age, and as a result, they experience many negative health symptoms.  Left untreated, low testosterone levels can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease.

Low Testosterone Increases Risk for Heart Disease

Testosterone replacement therapy has a beneficial anti-ischaemic effect, along with beneficial effects on lipids, glucose metabolism, inflammatory cytokine profiles, lean body mass, blood clotting profiles and patient well-being. It has now been demonstrated in several large longitudinal cohort studies of men with and without coronary disease that low baseline testosterone is a significant risk marker of increased all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. (1)

Low testosterone is associated with raised fibrinogen and hypercoagulable states, promoting atherosclerosis and atherosclerotic plaque instability and thus acute coronary syndromes. Studies in male animals have shown accelerated atherosclerosis after castration – an effect that is resolved by testosterone replacement therapy. (1)

Furthermore, accelerated coronary artery disease has been demonstrated in patients treated with testosterone-suppressive therapy. In a study of over seventy thousand men treated with androgen suppressive therapy for prostate cancer, there was a 44% increase in the risk of developing diabetes and 16% increase in the risk of cardiovascular death or myocardial infarction, effects which were evident as early as 1–4 months. (1)

Testosterone Helps to Prevent Heart Attacks

  • Testosterone protects the heart and arteries, and decreases risk of heart disease.
  • Testosterone lowers blood pressure by dilating the arteries, including the aorta and coronary arteries of the heart.
  • Men with arteriosclerosis generally have low testosterone levels.
  • Studies indicate that taking natural testosterone can help reverse arteriosclerosis.
  • Testosterone can also counter high cholesterol and angina.
Take a look at other research studies that show the benefit of testosterone on the heart:

Risk of Myocardial Infarction (MI) in Older Men Receiving Testosterone Therapy
Conclusion: Older men who were treated with intramuscular testosterone did not appear to have an increased risk of MI. For men with high MI risk, testosterone use was modestly protective against MI.

No Consistent Evidence of an Increased Risk of Heart Problems with Testosterone Medicines
Conclusion:  A regulatory body representing European Union member states has agreed by consensus that there is no consistent evidence of an increased risk for cardiac problems in men who receive testosterone products to treat hypogonadism.

Acute Anti-Ischemic Effect of Testosterone in Men With Coronary Artery Disease
Conclusion: Short-term administration of testosterone induces a beneficial effect on exercise-induced myocardial ischemia in men with coronary artery disease. This effect may be related to a direct coronary-relaxing effect.

Acute Hemodynamic Effects of Testosterone in Men with Chronic Heart Failure
Conclusion: Administration of testosterone increases cardiac output acutely, apparently via reduction of left ventricular afterload.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

So how do you know if you are deficient in testosterone? Symptoms are key:

  • low libido
  • fatigue
  • lack of initiative, assertiveness and drive
  • depressed moods
  • irritability

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!
