Thousands of men in their late 30s and 40s are trying testosterone injections, solutions, and patches these days in desires of restoring virility and youth. This is because the amount of naturally-producing testosterone can be reduced with growing age and this is the time when artificial testosterone supplements or testosterone replacement therapy comes into the picture.

Testosterone is a naturally-producing steroid hormone that is accountable for the proper development of male sex-related features. It is also accountable to maintain muscle volume, sufficient levels of red blood cells, bone strength and solidity, sense of well-being, and sexual and reproductive functions.

The levels of natural testosterone may get limited or reduce due to many factors, including chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, hormone analogues used for treating prostate cancer and steroids, genetic abnormalities like Klinefelter’s syndrome (extra X chromosome), chronic illness, chronic renal (kidney) failure, injury or infection to the testicles, HIV and AIDS, congenital conditions, stress and inflammatory diseases. Symptoms of low testosterone include depressed mood, decreased sex drive, difficulties with memory and concentration, decreased sense of well-being, and erectile dysfunction. Low testosterone levels can lead to variable effects on cholesterol metabolism, increase in body fat, fragile bones (osteoporosis), decrease in body hair, decrease in muscle mass, decrease in hemoglobin, and possibly mild anemia.

However, treating testosterone deficiency can be made easy with testosterone patches that are worn either on the body or on the scrotum, or daily application of testosterone gels that are applied to the upper arms, shoulders, or abdomen, or administration of intramuscular injections, usually every two or three weeks, or using gum tablets or buccal medications. By using any of these corrective drugs or techniques, one can experience dramatic increases in appetite, activity of the skin’s oil glands, sex drive, body musculature, red blood cells (RBCs), body hair growth, muscle mass and bone density, etc. besides reducing fatigue, anger, and depression.

Prostate cancer progression can be triggered by hormonal nutritional supplementsResearchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have discovered that hormonal components in the over-the-counter dietary supplements may promote the progression of prostate cancer besides decreasing the effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs.

This finding appeared in an issue of the Clinical Cancer Research to reaffirm the fact that patients must make prior communication to their doctors about any herbal or hormonal dietary supplements.

Dr. Claus Roehrborn, chairman of urology at UT Southwestern and one of the study’s authors, remarked that physicians must ask the patients to give a detailed account of not only prescription drugs but also of over-the-counter drugs and supplements as they may have a profound impact on specific health conditions.

It was remarked by the researchers that further research is required for defining the mechanism, safety, and effectiveness of popular herbal and hormone dietary supplements.
