Aging Men's Health: A Case-based Approach
A complete reference on common health concerns for the aging man
The global population is aging, and this important text explores the common health concerns that accompany male aging, particularly the effects of declining testosterone levels, or andropause. Here is the first and only book to comprehensively review this topic.
Using a case-based approach with supporting evidence, the book examines treatment for the biological and physiological changes that stem from a wide range of age-related problems associated with androgen deficiency. You will read about such topics as erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, obesity, growth hormone replacement for aging men, nutriceuticals, hypogonadism, and much more. Findings cited from recent literature ensure reliable analysis in every chapter, and 100 charts and graphs clarify research and key points.
The clinical implications of male aging extend into many disciplines--orthopedics, urology, endocrinology, cardiology, and others. Appropriate treatment and care are crucial. Highly informative and authoritative, this concise reference is a must for all practitioners treating the aging male patient.

While controversial, one can argue that high testosterone levels prevent prostate
cancer. The patient's initial PSA was 0.7. One year later it was 0.8. Mild increases
in PSA do occur and reflect modest increases in prostate mass. Because this ...
Low levels of zinc (Zn) impede synthesis of testosterone and estradiol from their
precursors and increasing fat mass increases conversion (via aromatization) of
androstenedione to estrone and testosterone to estradiol, lowering testosterone ...
zinc levels impair testosterone synthesis by the Leydig cells of the testes and
increase aromatase activity. Indeed, low levels of zinc in utero will impair the
testes irreparably, diminishing both testosterone synthesis and spermatogenesis.
