Testosterone Replacement after a Hysterectomy Protects Women from Heart Disease
My bio-identical testosterone replacement medical practice helps many women and men come back to normal life after aging decreases their testosterone and limits their productivity and joy of living. Most of my patients experience slow negative changes in their quality of life and begin to accumulate medical diseases including heart disease, over the first 10 years after their testosterone level becomes critically low.
Why Don’t the Experts Believe that Testosterone is a Necessary Female Hormone?
Changing the beliefs of anyone, especially people who believe they are experts in their field, is an amazingly difficult task, especially when the new information clashes with society’s gender ideas. In medicine we battle this truism every time new information comes to light that advances the overall practice of medicine to treat conditions that have not been conquered or ignored up to now.
Women’s Voice and Testosterone Pellets. Not what you think
There have been many articles that are written about how much Testosterone replacement causes the voice to lower, but they are not based on objective research. This is another “old wives tale” based on the fact that men have lower voices than women, however men have 10 times the concentration of Testosterone that women have. Until now there has not been an objective study to measure voice changes before and after testosterone replacement.

Testosterone implants (pellets) are not a new phenomenon.
They “have been used for over 80 years to treat symptoms of hormone deficiency in pre and postmenopausal women.”

Men’s Hormones Testosterone and Estradiol: How Testosterone and Anastrozole Pellets Create the Healthiest Hormone Environment in Men.
This week we are looking at the concept of homeostasis. The question is how we get our bodies (in particular our hormones) to balance properly as we age. Men, in particular are the focus of this week’s conversation. We know that as men age, they lose testosterone which needs to be replaced. What many men do not know, however, is that they also make estrogen and that estrogen too, needs to be replaced in the appropriate amount.
