Obesity

How does obesity affect prostate health?

Introduction.

Overweight and obesity are risk factors for many health problems such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, joint conditions, gallstones, and certain types of cancer among other issues.
Hereafter, we’ll discuss how obesity affects the health of the prostate, namely benign prostate enlargement and prostate cancer (PC). The aim is to educate and attract the attention of men to the adverse consequences that may have obesity on the male reproductive system in general and prostate health in particular.

Currently, prostate cancer is on the rise and so is obesity.
Only for the last five years, in the United States, registered PC cases have increased by 27% from 180,890 in 2016 to 248,530 in 2021.
The deaths from PC raised by 24% from 26,120 deaths in 2016 to 34,130 deaths in 2021.

Five years ago, an official forecast for PC was: 1 man in 9 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Now, it is 1 man in 8 already.

Don’t allow to be a part of these horrible statistics.

Prostate cancer: the role of estrogen

Introduction.

Despite the general belief that higher serum testosterone increases the risk of developing new and rapid growth of latent prostate cancer (PC), recently some scientists attribute testosterone only a secondary role. And the emphasis is being shifted onto its direct derivative-estradiol.

In a man’s body, enzyme aromatase converts about 0.3-0.4 % of testosterone (T) into estradiol (E2). Probably, the labeling of these compounds as the male’s and the female’s hormones allowed E2 to stay in the shade while the high T content and its well-known anabolic properties attracted much more attention regarding malignant cell growth. Moreover, for the last eight decades, there has been accumulating evidence directly pointing to T in fuelling prostate cancer.

This belief has resulted in a fear of T therapy for both cancer patients and all kinds of men suffering from low T. Evidence-based education of the general public about the true relationship between T, E2, and PC may help to change public consciousness and facilitate future progress in this demanding area. Let’s try to analyze the available data and understand how these two hormones affect the development of prostate cancer.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia: comparison of different ways of treatment

Introduction

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate enlargement develops in men over the age of 40 and may cause lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). In Europe, 30% (26 million men) and in the USA, 8 million men over 50 years of age are affected by LUTS. Besides LUTS, BPH can cause serious health issues too: acute urinary retention, bladder stones, urinary tract infection, hematuria, renal insufficiency, and upper urinary tract atrophy.

Any website of the medical clinique is trying to emphasize the benefits of the techniques available at this clinique, often downplaying the negative aspects of the procedure. Therefore, distributing the advantages and side effects of different ways of BPH treatments using clinical study results may play an important role in decision-making between patients and their healthcare providers.

Testosterone boosters: Zinc

Zinc – a master element to optimize testosterone in men.

Zinc (Zn) is the most abundant trace metal in the human after iron. It cannot be deposited in the body, the extra Zn is excreted together with sweat, and other discharges. Therefore, regular dietary intake of the mineral is required. The human body contains 2–4 grams of Zn and most of it (nearly 90%) is found in muscles and bones with the highest concentrations in the prostate and semen. Zn is the key element in the male reproduction system determining prostate gland function and growth of reproductive organs. Zinc is a component of over 300 enzymes and 1000 transcription factors and involved in almost all physiological functions of our body: growth, immune response, reproduction, DNA synthesis, expression of genes, and cell division. Here we will focus on how Zn stimulates testosterone production and thereby defines the reproductive health in men.

T-boosters: can we trust the sellers’ claims and product reviews?

Although testosterone therapy may benefit men with hypogonadism, erectile dysfunction caused by low hormones, and many other health conditions, issues regarding its potential risks and side effects such as prostate cancer, cardiovascular diseases are still of great concern and remain controversial. Almost 35% of hypogonadal men refuse testosterone therapy due to the fear of prostate cancer risk (Gooren LJ et al. 2007). And here, alternative medicinal herbs with a long history of traditional use turned out to be in wide demand. These remedies, unlike pure hormones, seem to exert their effect in a much more mild and tolerable mode.
