As it turned out, it is possible to reduce the incidence of strokes and heart attacks among older men with hormone replacement therapy. As it turned out, the risk of complications after the use of hormones is reduced even in people suffering from chronic "heart" diseases. And this decrease is significant - by 80%, as the study showed.
It is known that many women after the onset of menopause, in order to reduce the unpleasant symptoms of this condition, begin to take hormones. And thus, hormone replacement therapy relieves the fairer sex from problems such as mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, abdominal pains and many others.
But recently, doctors have begun to talk a lot about the benefits of hormone replacement therapy for men who do not experience such intimate and difficult moments in life when testosterone levels drop sharply, as happens in women.
But at the same time, in men, the amount of sex hormones still gradually decreases with age. And this becomes the reason for the decrease in muscle mass, depression, manifests itself as sensations of weakness, weakness and many other unpleasant symptoms.
So it already turns out that in recent years, doctors began to actively promote hormone replacement therapy for men who are offered tablets, plasters and gels. All of these drugs can increase testosterone levels. Not so long ago, there were fears about this that this could increase the risk of heart disease, as well as prostate tumors.
But American experts have found that men aged 58 to 78 years who already have heart problems will benefit from the practice of hormone replacement therapy in their state of health. As is known. a decrease in testosterone levels worsens heart function, and its increase perfectly strengthens the functionality of this organ. It is to this conclusion that experts came by examining 750 cores.
In the course of research, scientists came to the conclusion that hormone replacement therapy reduced the risk of heart disease by 80% compared with those men from the same age category who did not take any hormones.
