MALE HORMONES

malebrain.gif

A growing body of scientific-medical evidence indicates that there are moderate advantages to hormone replacement therapy for those past the age of 50 in women and men.  I have developed the topic, HRT,  for women.  This site is for men. 
 
Well, not quite, there are benefits for women taking testosterone: 
 
1.  Looks are improved, especially mature women and flabby  ones.
2.  Increased libdo (sex drive).
3.  Increased happiness that comes with fitness and better looks. 
 
I have included HGH (human growth hormone) in this male-hormone site because it is frequently taken by male body builders and is prescribed by some physicians along with testosterone. 
 
The issue of how a particular hormone works is hopelessly complex because of the systhesis of related compounds from that hormone, as the below map of pathways illustrates.

The male issue is more complex.  First there are a number of analogues of testosterone for which the research is in the neither land of marketing without requirements of FDA approval.  A second, problem with HRT is that  the established, medical route runs over $1,500 per year--the cost to women for HRT is a fraction thereof.

There is grass root revulsion to the current corporate health industry, with pharma doing the most harm.  The best account of bad pharma is by Danish Prof. Peter Gotzsche in his 2013 book Deadly Medicine and Organised Crime:  How big pharma has corrupted healthcare.  Prof. Gotzsche’s book has won the British Medical Book Award given by the BMA (British Medical Association which is comparable to our AMA).  Further endorsement comes from the Richard Smith former Editor-in-Chief of the BMJ (British Medical Journal) and Drummond Rennie, Deputy Editor of JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) which are 2 of the 4 leading English medical journal.   The President’s Lecture on YouTube by Harvard Professor Marcia Angell confirms Prof. Gotzsche’s book. Pharma is worse than you can imagine.

{footnote} [1]   You can thank the cheapness of birth control for keeping the price to women down.  How could the drug companies charge hundreds of dollar for a medication (though slightly modified) that is available to woman for just a few dollars per month?  They would like to do as they done with barbiturates, it is in their financial best interest.
 
The principle advantages for restoring to a youthful level testosterone is that of moderate increase in muscle mass, improved muscle tone, mental vigor, greater sex drive, and less depression.  The mental benfits (including sex drive) might result from increased physical energy.   The improvements are gradual, which supports the hypothesis of mental effects being dependent upon physical effects.

There is an alarming laxity in the production of research, education of public and doctors, and standards of FDA approval of drugs, as well as the monitoring of safety and effectiveness of drugs.  For 2 chapters of the best book on how big PHARMA has manipulated the above and much more by Doctor Marcia Angell (Harvard Professor and former editor of New England Journal of Medicine).
