T gel labeling changes over transference concerns
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:44:23 am »
The assault continues.   I personally think the transference concern should be printed in big bold letters on the labels, but as we have seen several times over the past month their seems to be an assault on TRT in the main stream media

As to the men for whom testosterone therapy was intended, the market for such products has exploded in recent years. Experimentation with testosterone therapy has seemingly been around since the dawn of time, with the practice of testosterone therapy active for several decades. Originally, according to the New York Times (11/24/13), testosterone drugs were designed to treat hypogonadism, a medical condition resulting from undescended testicles or a tumor of the pituitary gland. The result can be severe testosterone deficiency characterized by a low libido, small muscles (for a man) and minimal body hair. “That is the real hypogonadal patient,” says Dr. Richard Quinton, an endocrinologist at Newcastle University in Britain, in comments published in the New York Times. “Not the overweight businessman whose erections aren’t as good as they used to be.”

However, that’s exactly what appears to be going on. Diminished testosterone is a natural part of aging that can be exacerbated by poor diet, lack of sleep, lack of exercise and the corresponding weight gain that can happen more easily as men age. Sagging energy levels and libido, in most cases, can be resolved by fixing those poor lifestyle choices.

So is crazy amounts of stress, working after the sun goes down. Eating crappy food with all kinds of artificial ingredients also part of the normal aging process?

The medical community has an obligation to keep us healthy in response to the changes in our environment.   This guys argument is like saying "well we never planned for bird flu so let's just let it weed out some of the non resistant population or the people who are stupid or unlucky enough to get exposed to it."

At a purely economic level the cost of TRT is completely offset by the positive impact it will have on GDP regardless of the perceived risks.

Well, sure.  But what I am picking up on is the typical attitude out there that is "steroids for middle-aged guys".  Well, docs and people in general who think like this are accidently being cruel.  It is just miserable to be low testosterone - much worse than a cold or flu - and yet treating a cold or flu is encouraged.  They're just not thinking things through here.

At a purely economic level the cost of TRT is completely offset by the positive impact it will have on GDP regardless of the perceived risks.

I agree.  However, this needs to be proven.  As much of an HRT-lover as I am, I feel that they have done a very poor job of proving it's benefits and under what circumstances.  Remember:  we have that nasty topical cardiovascular study out there and that's about it.
