In this episode of Your Infinite Health, LeNae and Dr. Trip addresses some of the most common myths surrounding testosterone, especially the one about it causing heart attacks.
Testosterone is a hormone that has been the subject of much discussion and debate in recent years, with many claims being made about its potential benefits and drawbacks. In particular, the idea that testosterone causes heart attacks has become a widespread myth, one that needs to be corrected.
It's important to understand that testosterone requirements are not the same for everyone and may be affected by age, physical activity, and other factors. And while engaging in exercise can increase testosterone consumption, it is not a cause of heart disease. On the contrary, testosterone has been found to play a role in preventing cardiovascular disease, dementia, and diabetes.
For anyone considering testosterone therapy, it's important to understand that regular monitoring and follow-up are essential for achieving optimal results. It's also important to be aware that other hormones and metabolites can affect testosterone's effectiveness, and that some people may require higher levels of testosterone due to impaired androgen receptors.
While testosterone replacement therapy can help optimize cholesterol levels over time, it's also possible to experience excessive levels of testosterone, leading to synthetic androgen stimulation. Women, in particular, may experience side effects such as changes in voice and hair growth, while men may experience excessive levels of testosterone as well.
Ultimately, maintaining an optimal testosterone level can have a wide range of benefits, ranging from improved focus and stamina to reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. In order to achieve these benefits, it's important to work closely with a physician, undergo regular check-ins, and have an understanding of what optimal testosterone levels are for you.
