Male Hormone replacement Therapy: What have we learned since 2002?

22nd May 2009

I found this old New York Times article by accident. It talks about how Male hormone replacement therapy or testosterone therapy has been around for over a century (although back in the day they would put ram testicles in men) and how we haven’t really done research to see how safe and effective it is.

That was in 2002. I’m not sure what (if any) research has been done since then. Does testosterone help reduce the aging process in men? And if it does, is it really necessary consideri9ng guys like Willie Gault and Jack LaLanne who are doing fine with “just” exercise and diet?
