A recent New England Journal of Medicine article focuses on a case vignette about a 61 year old gentleman (Martin) who complains of low energy, low libido and a decreased ability to play sports. Martin´s physical is unremarkable with the only noteworthy fact is that he is obese. His blood results shows normal hematocrit, normal fasting glucose and normal thyroid function. His prostate specific antigen (PSA) is 3.5 which is stable comparing it to a level taken a year ago. What is noteworthy, is a testosterone level of 275 ng/deciliter (normal range is 300-1200 ng/deciliter).
Martin is representative of many of our male patients who walks in complaining of low libido, low energy and decreased muscle mass. These are three telltale symptoms of testosterone deficiency. Testosterone replacement therapy improves libido, erections, cardiovascular status, body composition, cognitive function, mood, depression, glycemic control and inflammation.
It is proven that if you increase muscle mass, you live longer. Martin also must do his part and make some lifestyle changes like more exercise and a healthier diet which isn’t focused on over consumption of food, especially processed foods.
In the case above, Martin’s testosterone level is clearly below the low end of the spectrum. It is imperative to give him testosterone therapy to improve his life. Arguments against testosterone therapy are just philosophical. Attitudes like “I don´t believe it can help” or “risks are unknown” or “benefits are unproven “are just ideas passed down to us by our professors in med school who themselves were wrong. Dr. Abraham Morgantaler, M.D. and associate clinical professor at Harvard Medical School has shown in numerous articles how conclusions drawn from this old research are invalid. Modern scientific research contradicts all these ideas, but many general physicians are simply not up to this new information. I can´t think of another condition in where doctors refuse to give treatment based solely on their belief. It is time to tear down the paradigm of testosterone therapy based on studies that weren’t well executed years ago. Martin needs testosterone!
