Health Risks and Side Effects of Testosterone Therapy

Introduction.

Many studies suggest the essential role of testosterone in keeping vigorous metabolic processes throughout the body. However, with age, testosterone levels decline, and the levels of sex hormone-binding globulin increase, both trends resulting in decreased bioavailable testosterone with all its benefits. The Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging published the rate of hypogonadism (reduced testicular size) as 20% in men over 60, 30% in men over 70, and 50% in men over 80 of age.

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 that one man in 9 would be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Now, it is one man in 8 already.

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

Testosterone boosters: Zinc

Zinc – a master element to optimize testosterone in men.

Zinc (Zn) is humans’ most abundant trace metal 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; 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 is 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 and 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.
