May 12, 2018
To normalize the content of testosterone in the male body hormone therapy is capable. But at the same time, another effect of hormones is noted - in particular, under their influence, the probability of developing heart attacks and strokes decreases.
This conclusion was made by scientists from the Heart Institute, engaged in research in the American city of Salt Lake City.
For three years the subjects were on hormone replacement therapy. At the same time, these people noted a decrease in the incidence of stroke and myocardial infarction by 80%.
The immediate participants in the study were men aged 58 to 78 years. All of them had a history of ischemic heart disease.
Participants in the study were divided into three groups. The first of these was not conducted any therapy with hormones. Men from the second group were given a testosterone hormone in an average dosage. It was injected or used as a gel. Finally, participants in the 3rd group were given an increased dosage of this hormone.
After hormone treatment, which was carried out for one year, scientists began to collect information about the presence of certain complications of hormone therapy. It was found that those who received an increased dose of testosterone, complications were not found.
Some men who took this hormone in an average dosage had some complications. Among the subjects who did not receive hormone therapy, the greatest number of complications was noted.
The researchers continued the study and watched its participants. Among men who did not receive testosterone, those who showed complications began to appear. The number of such people was 22. Of the participants who received the average dosage of the hormone, 38 had complications.
At the same time, the greatest number of side effects scientists observed in a group of men who did not receive hormonal replacement therapy at all. Such participants in this group turned out to be 125.
Based on the results of this study, the scientists made an appeal to the Office, which occupies sanitary control over the quality of medicines and food products.
They demand to make changes in the annotation of medicines containing testosterone in their composition. This will give a more objective picture to those who will undergo hormone replacement therapy.Like the article? Share with friends and acquaintances:
