Testosterone therapy’s the advantages and dangers

( CNN) Testosterone therapy, when used by humen over age 65 who have low testosterone levels, offers some health benefits but also poses potential risks, suggests a roundup of five new studies in the Journal of American Medicine and JAMA Internal Medicine.

Testosterone treatment improves bone density and anemia in those men, the results indicated. But on the downside, it increases the amount of plaque buildup in coronary arteries while doing nothing to improve cognitive function, the researchers found.
A separate analyse separate study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, also showed that testosterone therapy is associated with a lower danger of cardiovascular events in men 40 or older over a period of about three years.
