Testosterone Protects Muscle Mass

Protecting Muscle Mass As You Age
Testosterone’s role in muscle mass
Testosterone, the hormone that brings about the changes that literally turns a boy into a man, has been in the press lately in regards to its effects on age-related impotence. While adequate levels of Testosterone are certainly vital to the sexual well being of both men and women, studies are now showing that Testosterone supplementation may play a very important role in the fight against age-induced muscle loss.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Appears Safe For Prostate
Preliminary research suggests that testosterone replacement therapy for men with low testosterone levels appears to have little effect on the prostate gland, contrary to some reports that this therapy may be harmful, according to a study in the November 15 issue of JAMA, a theme issue on men’s health. Leonard S. Marks, M.D., of the Urological Sciences Research Foundation and University of California, Los Angeles, presented the findings of the study today at a JAMA media briefing on men’s health in New York.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) Revives Youthful Energy and Vitality While Improving Quality of Life

Griffin Medical Group – Center for Anti-Aging and Aesthetics
Alvin M. Yee, M.D.

The old way of thinking was that humans age, and have naturally declining hormones as a result of aging. However, there are thousands of physicians and other medical professionals who are rethinking their belief of the old aging model. The formation and rapid growth of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) since 1993 is proof of this emerging trend. The latest in medical research now indicates that the degenerative process known as aging occurs precisely because of our declining hormones. With bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), many studies have shown that the effects of aging can be greatly delayed, prevented or even reversed via supplementation of bio-identical hormones, by raising your hormones back to youthful levels.

What Men Don’t Know About Their Health and Aging Can Hurt Them– National Survey Finds That Most American Men Over the Age of 39 Fail to Attribute ‘Aging’ Symptoms to Low Testosterone, a Treatable Condition

PR Newswire 04-18-06
WASHINGTON, April 18, 2006 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ —

A national survey released today indicates that one third of American men over the age of 39 report experiencing two or more symptoms of low testosterone (Low T), a condition that affects four to five million American males, marked by decreased energy, low libido, reduced muscle strength, increased body fat, weaker bones, and mood swings. The survey of 522 men over age 39, which was commissioned by the Alliance for Aging Research and conducted by Harris Interactive, shows that of those men experiencing two or more symptoms, 95 percent say their doctors did not mention Low T as a possible cause, even though it is known that the condition can be diagnosed with a simple blood test. Given the high percentage of men experiencing symptoms associated with Low T, general lack of awareness and reported willingness to treat those symptoms, the Alliance for Aging Research, a nonprofit, independent organization promoting public health education, announced today the launch of the Men’s Health and Aging in America campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness of Low T, encourage testing for Low T, and educate the public about treatment options. Continue Reading »

Is Growth Hormone Replacement for Normal Aging Safe? Analysis of Current Medical Literature

Is Growth Hormone Replacement for
Normal Aging Safe?: Analysis of Current Medical LiteratureRonald Rothenberg, M.D,

Founder, California HealthSpan Institute

ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to discuss whether or not growth hormone replacement therapy (GHRT) for the treatment of somatopause of normal aging is safe and effective. In order to determine this it is important to learn about growth hormone (GH), the benefits of GHRT, and its side effects. We will also discuss whether or not pathological GH deficiency is the same as GH deficiency caused by “normal aging.” The links between GHRT and cancer and insulin resistance are also debated.

Human Chorionic Gonadrotropin

HCG is provided as a glycoprotein powder to be diluted with water, and acts in the body like luteinizing hormone (LH), stimulating the testes to produce testosterone even when natural LH is not present or is deficient. It therefore is useful for maintaining testosterone production and testicle size during testosterone replacement therapy(TRT). Use of this drug in the taper is rather counterproductive, since the resulting increased testosterone production is itself inhibitory to the hypothalamus and pituitary, delaying recovery. Thus, if this drug is used, it is preferably used during the (TRT) cycle itself. A daily amount of 500 IU is generally sufficient, and in my opinion usage should not exceed 1000 IU per day.

Daily administration is superior to less frequent administration.

Doses over 1000 IU are noted for their tendency to cause or aggravate gynecomastia, and also act to desensitize the testicles to LH.

HCG may be injected intramuscularly, subcutaneously, or in a shallow injection about 1/4″ deep with the needle going straight in. A 29 gauge insulin needle is recommended. Injection speed should be slow.

Some HCG products are diluted 5000 or even 10,000 IU per mL, while others are diluted 1000 IU per mL. So far as I know there is no need to make the preparation so dilute. Once mixed, the preparation should be refrigerated and used within a few weeks. The substance is also somewhat temperature sensitive before mixing and should not be exposed to excessive heat.

HCG can also useful for returning testosterone to normal levels should levels be low post (TRT), or, with care, to increase levels from normal to high normal. Titration of the dose, by measuring Testosterone levels and then adjusting the HCG dose accordingly, is recommended for long term use. An aromotase inhibitor like anastrozole is recommended to prevent any conversion to estrogen.

Bio-Identical Estrogens and Progesterone in Preventive and Anti-Aging Medicine

One of the fundamental philosophical principles of anti-aging medicine is that only bio-identical (sometimes called natural) hormones should be used for hormone replacement therapy. Premarin and Provera are dangerous synthetic hormones and should not be used for hormone replacement therapy. Continue Reading »
