Did you know that testosterone is very important and can guarantee men’s health?
In a new study, researchers have found that men who have low levels of testosterone and are treated with this hormone have a reduced risk of heart attack, stroke, and heart disease.
This study is the first to show the importance of testosterone in men’s heart health. According to this study, which was conducted on 83,000 patients, men who were treated with this hormone had a 53% lower risk of dying from a stroke or heart attack.
In general, testosterone is responsible for creating distinctive features of the male body. Even during fetal life, placental gonadotropin allows the secretion of moderate amounts of testosterone, and testosterone is secreted during the entire period of fetal development and at least 10 weeks after birth. Since then, almost no testosterone is produced during childhood. However, between the ages of 10 and 13, which is the beginning of puberty, the secretion of testosterone increases rapidly under the influence of gonadotropic hormones of the anterior pituitary, and this high secretion continues for most of the rest of the life, but after the age of 50, it decreases rapidly and reaches 80 years. Its maximum secretion reaches 20 to 50%.
In a recent study, researchers have come to the conclusion that due to the decrease in testosterone levels from the age of 50 and above, the risk of heart attack, heart attack and cardiovascular diseases in men increases.
