A population-based study showed no association between total prostate cancer risk and testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
Study of older hypogonadal men does not support use of TRT to improve memory, according to researchers.
Older men on TRT versus placebo for 1 year had improved hemoglobin levels and volumetric bone mineral density and estimated bone strength.
In a large study, testosterone replacement therapy was associated with a 33% lower risk of cardiac and stroke events among hypogonadal men.
The normal range for total testosterone is 264 to 916 ng/dL for healthy men ages 19 to 39 with a body mass index below 30 kg/m2.
Risk peaks in the first 6 months of hormone treatment, but overall odds are low.
