Shows Promise in Treating Obesity and Diabetes
countless men across the country that vouch for the effectiveness of
Testosterone Creams, Injections, and Sprays. As the years go by, more
and more people are made aware of the potent benefits of the therapy.
More men (and even some women) are choosing Testosterone in an
attempt to alleviate the changes that are associated with aging.
there are many who come forward to praise the benefits of this
potentially life-changing hormone treatment, there are certainly some
detractors. There are some physicians that are wary of the rapid
increase in the Prescription of Therapeutic Testosterone, but that
has done nothing to slow down the rate at which new men have chosen
to adopt the hormone. In America, there is evidence that Testosterone
Prescription numbers have risen in all fifty states as well as all
United States Territories.
Increase in Testosterone Usage
The use of
Testosterone HRT has grown at a remarkable pace in other countries
around the globe. Australia has seen a sharp increase in Testosterone
prescription in the past decade, for example. In Australia, two forms
of Testosterone Replacement Therapy have been recently approved: A
Testosterone Gel and a Testosterone Injection which only needs to be
administered once per week or less.

new products in Australia have been available domestically for some
time. Recently in the United States, Testosterone Sprays and Dermal
Implants have become available, expanding patient choice even

anecdotal proponent for Testosterone Replacement is Chris Running.
Chris is fifty seven years old and feels younger than he has in well
over fifteen years. He raves about his Testosterone Injections,
claiming that the therapy has led him to both increase his muscle
mass and drop pounds at the same time. He claims that the changes
that have taken place in his body are not only physical, but mental
as well. He says that he just wakes up every day feeling great, and
when he sees himself in the mirror each morning it makes him feel
Can Help Many People
important to remember that although Testosterone Shots and Creams
aren't for everyone, there are a significant number of aging men that
could see tremendous benefit through the use of the vital hormone.
Testosterone can be legitimately prescribed to any man that displays
active symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency. There are also a number
of medical disorders which require Testosterone Replacement in order
to improve health and human function, including Klinefelter Syndrome.
Testosterone Makes a Man
of clever marketing and potent promises have melded into a perfect
storm of consumer interest that has males across the globe engrossed
with the concept of Testosterone Deficiency and what it means,
hormonally, to truly be a man.
is the primary tool in the genetic alchemy which creates a man.
Testosterone is primarily responsible for practically all traits
which differentiate males from females, including psychological
traits such as aggressiveness and assertiveness, as well as physical
traits such as enhanced muscle development and a full and thick
beard. In patients with significant Testosterone Deficiency, hormonal
imbalance is literally robbing men of manhood, decreasing their
strength and increasing their body fat while also softening the
dominant traits which help men succeed and make the most of their
Deficiency has a negative effect on male sexuality as well. As the
level of deficiency rises, a man's sexual ability falls at a rapid
pace. First, libido and sexual interest start to decline. As
Testosterone Levels decline further, the actual nuts and bolts of
sexuality start to go haywire also. Men can actually completely lose
the ability to maintain an erection if their deficiency reaches a
certain level of severity!
Treatment with Testosterone HRT
can also be used as a valid treatment for a medical disorder known as
Andropause. Andropause is a medical condition which is similar to
Menopause, but different in some key ways. Like Menopause, Andropause
is a natural result of the aging process in which key hormone levels
start to decline, changing the life of the individual and increasing
the rate and severity of the physical progression of aging. Unlike
Menopause, however, Andropause is a gradual decline that slowly and
steadily alters the body's ability to produce the Hormone
Uses for Testosterone: Obesity and Diabetes
addition to its use as a treatment for Andropause and sexual
dysfunction, Testosterone is also being studied in regard to a number
of other medical disorders as well. The two most promising
Testosterone Medical Treatments are for Diabetes and Obesity. A
recent study completed in Australia in 2010 provides evidence that
Testosterone Hormone Injections may be a potent tool in the war
of Testosterone for Obesity
study, Testosterone use in obese patients had the dual benefit of
both increasing lean muscle mass and decreasing the overall adipose
fat mass of the body. Testosterone Deficiency causes overweight males
to produce too much Estrogen and Cortisol in relation to
male body, Testosterone is produced primarily by adipose fat cells,
and as these cells grow and become profligate, the body's capacity
for estrogen production increases as well. Fat cells have a unique
capability to transform the Testosterone Hormone into Estrogen, and
high levels of Estrogen are related to a number of negative health
conditions throughout the body.
is the body's primary hormone secreted in response to high-stress
situations. Cortisol is great for increasing pain tolerance and
handling the stress of high-intensity situations, but it also eats
away at the body's ability to produce Testosterone, because both
hormones are created using the same precursor hormones. Like
Estrogen, high Cortisol Levels also vastly increase the incidence of
a number of negative health consequences such as increased arterial
plaque and disastrous cholesterol levels.
promising Testosterone Study, a large number of diabetic men will be
treated with Testosterone in order to quantify the potential benefits
of treatment among men with this physiologically devastating
disorder. Male patients that participated in this study will be
evaluated over the course of a year in regard to cardiovascular risk
and body-fat ratio.
this large scale study was approved, small-scale pilot research was
conducted which proved the feasibility of the hypothesis, granting
the researchers the opportunity to further test their hypothesis with
a larger pool of participants. The scientists, led by Doctor Carolyn
Allan, are optimistic that their study will successfully yield a new
and potent means to combat Diabetes.
in Process of Expansion
researchers are in the process of fielding candidates for this study
all over the country in Australia, in order to study Testosterone as
a potentially valid and useful treatment for Type-Two Diabetes. Dr.
Allan is looking for patients that will potentially benefit from
Testosterone Replacement for Testosterone Deficiency while also not
being at an elevated risk of adverse complications from treatment
such as prostate cancer.
Due to the
conflicting affects of Insulin and fat upon Testosterone production,
obese and diabetic patients have a higher incidence of Testosterone
Deficiency than nearly any other population, and it is hypothesized
that balancing Testosterone availability will have a very strong
affect upon the patient's ability to burn fat, increase energy, and
build muscle. The study will combine Testosterone Hormone
Administration with a thoughtful diet, nutrition, and exercise plan
in order to improve the short-term and long-term health of the
Future of Testosterone
Hormone Replacement Therapy is not necessarily a panacea to the aging
process, but as time passes and the body of knowledge continues to
grow regarding this vitally important hormone, it becomes vividly
clear that Testosterone Deficiency has an incredibly negative affect
upon male health and longevity. Over time, the number of valid
treatments using Testosterone will undoubtedly increase, as the
importance of hormone balance becomes more well-understood. For now,
just talk to your doctor.
