RECORDED in Madrid, Spain, at the annual meeting of the European Association of Urology (EAU), March 2015. AUTHORS: Dr. Abraham Morgentaler
Harvard urologist A. Morgentaler, M.D., cites 46 studies that support the cardiovascular and metabolic benefits of testosterone replacement and four studies that do not. Morgentaler identifies and explains the flaws in the four negative studies and the edits that have been made in those studies to correct the untrue statements.
The Mortality Toll of Estrogen Avoidance: An Analysis of Excess Deaths Among Hysterectomized Women Aged 50 to 59 Years
PUBLISHED on American Journal of Public Health, February 2013. AUTHORS: Philip M. Sarrel MD, Valentine Y. Njike MD MPH, Valentina Vinante MD, David L. Katz MD MPH
Objectives: We examined the effect of estrogen avoidance on mortality rates among hysterectomized women aged 50 to 59 years.
Methods. We derived a formula to relate the excess mortality among hysterectomized women aged 50 to 59 years assigned to placebo in the Women’s Health Initiative randomized controlled trial to the entire population of comparable women in the United States, incorporating the decline in estrogen use observed between 2002 and 2011.
Results: Over a 10-year span, starting in 2002, a minimum of 18 601 and as many as 91 610 postmenopausal women died prematurely because of the avoidance of estrogen therapy (ET).
Conclusions: ET in younger postmenopausal women is associated with a decisive reduction in all-cause mortality, but estrogen use in this population is low and continuing to fall. Our data indicate an associated annual mortality toll in the thousands of women aged 50 to 59 years. Informed discussion between these women and their health care providers about the effects of ET is a matter of considerable urgency.

During the past year, several well designed studies have begun to clear up this misinformation. Not only is there no increased risk in having a clot while on testosterone therapy, there is solid evidence of the cardiac benefit of this treatment. In addition, testosterone therapy decreases the risk of osteoporosis and dementia. I have included a link to a recent publication from the Mayo Clinic Proceedings on this topic.
