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.

One of the most popular antiestrogens for sportsmen on anabolic steroids, Proviron is considered as the best oral androgenic steroid in today’s world. It is admired by sportsmen and health-conscious individuals across the world to stimulate the testes to make more of testosterone, the male sex hormone.

Proviron has the molecular formula of C20H32O2 and its molecular weight is 304.4716 g/mol at the base. The androgenic-anabolic ratio of Proviron is 30-40/100-150 and its active life is up to 12 hours; it can be detected within five to six weeks and has the chemical name of 1 alpha-methyl-17 beta-hydroxy-5 alpha-androstan-3-one.

The antiestrogen, also known as Mesterolone and Provironum, is medically prescribed to offer significant relief to hypogonadal males afflicted with testosterone deficiency and treat individuals with sexual dysfunction. The drug is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and has the unique ability to surge the release of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone. It is also recommended to middle- and old-aged men experiencing declining physical activity and mental alertness and is highly effective in treating health conditions, including weak memory, disturbances of libido and potency, irritability, disturbances of sleep, depressive moods, reduced efficiency, easy fatigability, lack of concentration, and general vegetative complaints.

Proviron is also useful in promoting the development of secondary male sex characteristics in incidents of prepuberal hypogonadism and may also be prescribed as part of the substitution therapy where a loss of gonadal function has occurred post-puberally. Proviron may be prescribed to treat individuals afflicted with low sexual desire or impotency.

In the world of professional sports, Proviron is admired by sportsmen as it is well tolerated by the liver and does not impair spermatogenesis (process of producing sperm). Proviron can actually increase the quality and quantity of sperm and thus increases the chances of procreation (reproduction). It is commonly used by sportsmen, just before the end or at the end of a steroid cycle, to restore the production of testosterone. Proviron is also used by sportsmen on harsh and aromatizable steroids such as testosterone derivatives to avoid estrogenic side effects, including oily skin, gynecomastia, and fluid retention. In short, Proviron has the ability to make other anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs more effective by inhibiting their conversion to estrogens besides improving the count of circulating free testosterone in the body and providing a more hardened and quality look to muscles.

The recommended dose of Proviron for men is 25-100 mg per day, with or without meals. This drug should not be abused or used without medical recommendation and guidance else it can lead to side effects, such as oily skin, acne, fatigue, reduced libido, and painful erections. It is not recommended to pregnant and breastfeeding women or those suffering with prostate cancer. If Proviron users are taking anticoagulants, antidiabetics, cyclosporine, and thyroxine, medical guidance is very important as it can interfere with absorption of these medicines. In order to maintain its shelf life, Proviron must be stored below 30°C and kept away from direct heat, moisture, and sunlight.

  Low testosterone results in early death

Low testosterone results in early deathA new research has associated low levels of testosterone to a heightened risk of premature death from heart disease and all causes.

The finding, however, refutes received wisdom that the hormone is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

From Timesofindia.indiatimes.com:

Researchers base their findings on 930 men, all of whom had coronary artery heart disease, and had been referred to a specialist heart centre between 2000 and 2002.

Their heart health was then tracked for around 7 years.

On referral, low testosterone was relatively common. One in four of the men was classified as having low testosterone, using measurements of either bioavailable testosterone (bio-T) – available for tissues to use – of under 2.6 mmol/l or total testosterone (TT) of under 8.1 mmol/l.

These measures indicate clinically defined testosterone deficiency, referred to as hypogonadism, as opposed to a tailing off in levels of the hormone as a result of ageing.

During the monitoring period almost twice as many men with low testosterone died as did those with normal levels. One in five (41) of those with low testosterone died, compared with one in eight (12pc) of those with normal levels.

The study has been published online in Heart.
