    The Effects of Testosterone Gel on Health Outcomes

    The Effects of Testosterone Gel on Health Outcomes

    INTRO: Can testosterone gel improve memory, correct anemia, increase bone density or prevent the growth of coronary artery plaque in older men with low testosterone levels? Four new studies in JAMA and JAMA Internal Medicine found improvement in some of these measures.  Laura Berger has more in this week’s JAMA Report.

    LOW TESTOSTERONE LEVELS ARE COMMON IN OLDER MEN. FOUR NEW STUDIES IN JAMA AND JAMA INTERNAL MEDICINE LOOKED AT WHETHER USING A TESTOSTERONE GEL COULD AFFECT CERTAIN HEALTH OUTCOMES.

    “We selected men over 65 who had low testosterone levels. We treated them with either testosterone or placebo for one year.  We studied their blood counts, their bone density, the amount of plaque in their coronary arteries, and their memory.”

    THE WORK BY DR. PETER SNYDER OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA AND HIS CO-AUTHORS WAS PART OF A GROUP OF COORDINATED TRIALS ON THE EFFECTS OF TESTOSTERONE GEL IN OLDER MEN WITH LOW TESTOSTERONE LEVELS.

     

    RESEARCHERS FOUND THE TESTOSTERONE GEL CORRECTED ANEMIA AND INCREASED BONE DENSITY MORE THAN PLACEBO, BUT IT DID NOT IMPROVE MEMORY AND IT INCREASED THE AMOUNT OF CORONARY ARTERY PLAQUE.

     

    1. SNYDER SAYS THAT THE INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF CORONARY ARTERY PLAQUE COULD BE AN EARLY SIGN OF INCREASED RISK OF HEART PROBLEMS. AND THE STUDIES DID NOT LOOK AT PROSTATE CANCER, WHICH CAN GROW IN RESPONSE TO TESTOSTERONE.

    Mentally Stimulating Activities in Late Life and Risk of Mild Cognitive Impairment

    INTRO: Can brain-stimulating activities help older adults lower their risk of developing mild cognitive impairment? A new study in JAMA Neurology suggests certain activities may be associated with less risk. Laura Berger has more in this week’s JAMA Report.
