The Endocrine Society today issued a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) advising against the usage of testosterone therapy
in healthy women. Although the FDA approved testosterone therapy for the treatment of disorders affecting the testes, pituitary and hypothalamus, it hasn't been approved for treating age-associated decrease in testosterone levels. The U.S. National Institute on Aging is also anticipated to release the results of research on the safety of testosterone. The study involved roughly 800 elderly men with low testosterone and symptoms associated with this condition, including http://tinyurl.com/dy2gf6h
sexual and physical dysfunction. The research is expected to shed more light on the security of testosterone treatment, since the men's heart health was carefully monitored.
Studies have shown that testosterone deficiency is related to several important health problems like diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and bone fractures Men who meet medical criteria for treatment should receive therapy. In fact, your testosterone levels have probably been slowly falling for quite some time, a decline that usually starts around age 30.
No clear lower limit of testosterone was confirmed; yet 15 ng per dL (0.5 nmol per L) usually is used. One study 38 found that women with 0 to 10 ng per dL (0 to 0.3 nmol per L) had markedly decreased sexual desire in all scenarios and absent or markedly reduced orgasms. Because of studies such as this, supplemented with anecdotal evidence, many girls have been started on testosterone treatment. Most women can expect to spend one third of their lives in the postmenopausal stage
. Depression, anger, moodiness, insomnia, and lack of well being are common complaints of postmenopausal women.
