• The research studied data on more than 83,000 men aged 50 or above and having low testosterone levels. The findings have shown a sharp contrast between those who were untreated and those who were treated until attained normal testosterone levels. Those aged men who had their hormone level restored to normal were 24 percent less likely to suffer a heart attack, 36 percent less likely to suffer a stroke and 56 percent less likely to die during the follow-up period.
  • This is the first study to prove the significant benefit of adequate dosing for achieving normal testosterone levels. Until now, the medical community did not have enough proves to set the debate once and for all. A definitive clinical trial would be necessary to provide clear guidance.
  • It is still unknown for what reasons testosterone's has apparent benefits for the overall survival rate. According to the researchers, among the possible explanations are insulin sensitivity, body fat, blood platelets, lipids, inflammation and other biological pathways.
