Men with high oxidative stress may sustain brain damage during testosterone use

Posted on Monday, April 14th, 2014 at 4:48 pm    

A recent study found that men who have high levels of oxidative stress are at a higher risk of sustaining brain damage if they undergo testosterone therapy.

According to the study, which will be published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease April edition and was conducted by researchers at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, some Caucasian men may be negatively affected by testosterone supplements unlike Mexican-American men. The group found that Caucasian men are more likely to have high oxidative stress.

The researchers said the oxidative stress level in men indicates if testosterone can be beneficial or harmful for them. The study suggests that men who want to undergo testosterone therapy should have their blood tested by doctors to know if the supplement will benefit them.

Unfortunately, there are many other studies that have linked testosterone therapy with an increased risk of heart attack or stroke.
