Testosterone, Estrogen & Body Composition

Posted Sep 12 2013 3:00am
It's been a while since I've posted anything, though not for lack of reading.  Instead, I'm on the losing end of a battle for HealthTap's Top Family Physician .  The good news is the competition (which consists of answering medical questions posted by inquiring minds from around the globe) ends this coming Sunday, so if you have a chance, check it out (and maybe vote for me!).

In any case, I stumbled once more upon a very exciting randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine in which the authors concluded that testosterone level is related to muscle mass, estrogen is related to fat mass, and both are linked to sexual drive.  Imagine that!  More importantly, take time to read the editorial .  Perhaps we'll start taking this hypogonadism situation a bit more seriously.  And hopefully weed out those who just want to abuse testosterone, too.
