    5 year T study shows improvements in lipids, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels

    A new observational study following men with hypogonadism taking testosterone for 5 years the longest treatment duration to date showed improvements in lipids, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels, thereby ameliorating a number of components of the metabolic syndrome.

    "Men with hypogonadism, or testosterone deficiency, do get reasonable benefit from testosterone treatment, in a very subtle way," lead author Adulmaged M Traish, PhD, from Boston University School of Medicine, Massachusetts, told Medscape Medical News. "They lose a bit of weight, it reduces hyperglycemia and insulin resistance, and, although it was a surprise to me, testosterone certainly normalizes the lipid profile."

    The long duration of this new trial strengthens the findings, said Dr. Traish. "If this were a 3-week or 6-week observational study, I would have my personal doubts, but once you pass the third or fourth year and it stays consistent, it's beginning to tell us that there is something obviously there."

    In the 2 years I've been on TRT, my total cholesterol went from 242 to 178, my other lipid related numbers went down just as dramatically. HDL was unaffected. Blood pressure went down as well. Used to have daily anxiety - haven't felt anxious a single day in a year. I can name off ten other improvements.
