Is testosterone the Holy Grail for men’s health?


Dear Colleagues,


I am pleased to announce this special issue focusing on the numerous novel findings on testosterone replacement therapy in several fields of men’s health, such as metabolic, cardiovascular, hepatic, prostate, mental, sexual, and muscular functions.

After decades of criticism and poor reputation for testosterone replacement therapy, current research has finally shed light on the many benefits of healthy testosterone levels in the aging male. Especially regarding prostate and cardiovascular functions, past results are mostly outdated, while current research shows that low testosterone levels are correlated with impairments in these areas.

In the medical world, there is a strong need for deeper understanding and a significant update concerning the effects of testosterone in the aging male. Many elderly men suffer from metabolic, cardiovascular, hepatic, prostate, mental, sexual, or muscular impairments without ever getting their serum testosterone levels measured. Specialty physicians as well as primary care physicians should be aware of the symptoms of low testosterone and recognize how to evaluate serum testosterone levels in order to provide better preventive care for men.

This special issue will gather novel research from numerous specialists in this field to advance and update the potential of testosterone replacement therapy in improving the quality of life in aging men.

We welcome the following topics for this special issue:

Testosterone in combination with (1) metabolic functions, (2) liver health, (3) sarcopenia, (4) depression, (5) sexual functions, (6) cardiovascular health, (7) prostate health, as well as novel methods of testosterone replacement therapy.
