Low Testosterone Facts And Treatment Options Accumed Research Associates New York

Low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism or Andropause, affects many men over the age of 45. The prevalence of low testosterone generally increases with age. Researchers have found that the incidence of low testosterone increases from approximately 20% of men over 60, to 30% of men over 70 and 50% of men over 80 years of age.

Signs And Symptoms Of Low Testosterone In Men

There are both sexual and non-sexual signs and symptoms associated with low testosterone. Sexual symptoms include poor erectile function, low libido (desire for sex), weaker and fewererections, and reduced sexual activity. Nonsexual symptoms include increased body fat, decreased energy and fatigue, reduced muscle mass, and depression.

Roughly 40% of men with high blood pressure and 40% of men with high cholesterol levels will have low testosterone levels. Additionally, approximately 50% of men with diabetes and 50% of obese men will have low testosterone. And we know that 30% of men with HIV and 50% of men with AIDS will have low testosterone. Surprisingly, almost 75% of men with a history of chronic opioid use will have low testosterone levels.

Treatment Options For Low Tesosterone

There are many treatment options for symptomatic low testosterone. Testosterone replacement therapy may be in the form of skin gel, injections, long acting pellets, patches or oral inserts. The most common type of therapy is gel therapy, which is used by approximately 70% of patients. Men simply rub a gel onto their shoulders or upper arms after taking a shower. Roughly 17% of patients are using testosterone injections and 10% of men are using testosterone patches. Approximately 3% of patients are using other forms of testosterone, such as oral testosterone or implantable testosterone pellets.

Enlarged Prostate New York Times Article- Accumed Research Associates

Accumed Research Associates offers options for men with enlarged prostates including clinical trials and enlarged prostate diagnosis and enlarged prostate treatment.  Accumed Research Associates offers clinical trials for enlarged prostates.  Accumed Research Associates offers enlarged prostate treatment in New York.

Below are excerpt from a recent New York Times article in January 2014 http://www.nytimes.com/health/guides/disease/enlarged-prostate/overview.html

The prostate is a male reproductive gland that produces the fluid that carries sperm during ejaculation. It surrounds the urethra, the tube through which urine passes out of the body.

An enlarged prostate means the gland has grown bigger. Prostate enlargement happens to almost all men as they get older. As the gland grows, it can press on the urethra and cause urination and bladder problems.

An enlarged prostate is often called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or benign prostatic hypertrophy. It is not cancer, and it does not raise your risk for prostate cancer.

The actual cause of prostate enlargement is unknown. Factors linked to aging and the testicles themselves may play a role in the growth of the gland. Men who have had their testicles removed at a young age (for example, as a result of testicular cancer) do not develop BPH.

Similarly, if the testicles are removed after a man develops BPH, the prostate begins to shrink in size.

Some facts about prostate enlargement:

  • The likelihood of developing an enlarged prostate increases with age.
  • BPH is so common that it has been said all men will have an enlarged prostate if they live long enough.
  • A small amount of prostate enlargement is present in many men over age 40 and more than 90% of men over age 80.
  • No risk factors have been identified other than having normally functioning testicles.

Less than half of all men with BPH have symptoms of the disease, which include:

  • Dribbling at the end of urinating
  • Inability to urinate (urinary retention)
  • Incomplete emptying of your bladder
  • Incontinence
  • Needing to urinate two or more times per night
  • Pain with urination or bloody urine (these may indicate infection)
  • Slowed or delayed start of the urinary stream
  • Straining to urinate
  • Strong and sudden urge to urinate
  • Weak urine stream

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition in which the prostate gland becomes enlarged. The actual size of the gland does not necessarily predict symptom severity. Some men with minimally enlarged prostate glands may experience symptoms while other men with much larger glands may not have symptoms at all. BPH is very common among older men, and the incidence increases with age.

The symptoms associated with BPH are collectively called lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Common symptoms of BPH include:

  • An urgent need to urinate and difficulty postponing urination
  • A hesitation before urine flow starts despite the urgency to urinate
  • Pushing or straining to urinate
  • Weaker urinary stream
  • Feeling that the bladder has not emptied completely
  • Dribbling at the end of urination or leakage afterward known as “post void dribble”
  • Urinary retention (inability to void) is a serious symptom of severe BPH that requires immediate medical attention and is the end result of these symptoms that progress.

Treatment Options

BPH is not a cancerous or precancerous condition.  Treatment options include medications and surgery. Five-alpha-reductase inhibitors (5-ARIs) and alpha-blockers are the main types of drugs used for Enlarged Prostate (BPH) treatment.  Many of these medicates as well as surgeries have sexual side effects such as loss of ejaculation, loss or decreased libido or sex drive, decreased erections (erectile dysfunction), and breast enlargement in men known as gynecomastia.

Accumed Research Associates offers alternatives to these standard therapies with clinical trials.  Visit www.accumedresearch.com to learn more or join a trial or call 1 (888)746-2190.  Visit www.clinicaltrials.gov to learn of more trials as well.

Low Testosterone Treatment Accumed Research Associates New York

Accumed Research Associates, located in Garden City, New York offers clinical trials for low testosterone. Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone made by the body and is responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of other secondary sexual characteristics. In men, testosterone is produced in the testes, the reproductive glands that also produce sperm. The amount of testosterone produced by the testes is regulated by parts of brain in the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland. Accumed Research Associates are experts in testosterone treatment as well as diagnosis and management.

Some effects of testosterone may include;

 

• Development of male hair distribution such as facial hair
• Changes in body muscle mass and strength and fat distribution
• Sex drive and sexual function
• Mood and energy level
• Bone strength

In healthy men, testosterone levels between 300ng/dL and 1000ng/dL are considered normal. However, most men have values  somewhere between 350ng/dl to 600ng/dl. When levels of testosterone are below normal, the brain signals the testes to make more. When there is enough testosterone, the brain signals the testes to make less.

Benefits of Tesosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) vary based upon the pre-therapy symptoms and other factors, but can include:

• Improved muscle mass and strength
• Increased bone mineral density
• Thicker body hair and skin
• Improved sexual desire
• Boosted energy
• Decreased irritability and depression
• Improved visuospatial cognitive function and verbal memory
• Higher motivation
• Decreased body fat
• Better mood
• Improved erectile function.

The risks of testosterone replacement therapy are not common and can be carefully monitored by regular blood tests and checkups to make sure that the testosterone is in the normal reference range and that no other issues develop.

Side effects of Testosterone treatment can include;

  • Increase in red blood cells known as hemoglobin
  • Prostate enlargement
  • Skin reactions
  • Infertility
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fluid retention

The incidence of prostate enlargement symptoms generally increases with age.  Many men equate prostate enlargement with increased risk of cancer which is not the case.  Prostate cancer is detected by a physical exam or digital rectal exam (DRE) and a PSA.  The PSA is a simple blood test. To learn more about PSA you can visit http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/detection/PSA . BPH or prostate enlargement can occur in the absence of prostate cancer.  Common evaluation of BPH is typically based upon the patient’s self reporting of what he experiences (symptoms) and is measured by a standardized questionnaire oftentimes (IPSS). In addition a urinary flow test and sonogram to measure the amount of urine retained in the bladder is common. 

Enlarged prostate treatment can range from observation, medications, or even surgery to improve the blockage caused by the overgrowth of the prostate.  Accumed Research Associates offers novel treatments.  Some of these options even include the option of a single treatment in the office so that patients do not have to take medications every day.  These alternative options may even avoid sexual side effects often seen with the usual medications or surgeries.
