Response to Media Reports
Headline news stories on November 5, 2013, parroted a study proclaiming that aging men using testosterone drugs suffer greater heart attack risk.
Life Extension® immediately recognized errors in this anti-testosterone study that render its findings meaningless.
This study was designed by physicians who apparently don’t know how to safely restore testosterone levels in aging men.
The media’s portrayal of this flawed study will discourage aging men from properly restoring their testosterone levels. To help spare the lives of testosterone deficient men, we have prepared an extensive rebuttal to this erroneous report.
For those who choose not to read our extensive rebuttal, I’ve prepared the following brief summary:
Research published in 2013 shows profound cardiovascular benefits in response to higher testosterone levels (in men). The media conveniently ignored these positive reports and narrowly focused on the egregiously flawed study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Based on many published studies, Life Extension has recommended for decades that aging men restore testosterone to a youthful range. We’ve always warned that for some men restoring one’s testosterone to more youthful levels could create excessive levels of estrogen, which is readily detectable by blood testing and reversible using aromatase-inhibiting therapies.
What’s most frightening is that most mainstream doctors today are blindly prescribing testosterone drugs and omitting any kind of estrogen testing. This creates a very dangerous environment for men who excessively convert their testosterone into excess estrogen!
