Testosterone Treatment For Women Tanks at Endocrine Society Meeting

If you have been prescribed testosterone, it's time to gab with your gyno on the prescription and whether it really is the correct medication for you, as it has not been endorsed for most women. The Endocrine Society in their 2014 meeting, surprising many, issued a statement against the use of testosterone therapy in healthy women. Echoing what every study of sexual function and testosterone treatment has concluded, the society admitted that there are small improvements in sexual function with testosterone, especially in menopausal women. Te Endocrine's position is that the risks are not worth the small benefits for healthy women, but in women with HSDD (hypoactive sexual desire disorder) there may be benefits.. Details of the society's position can be found in “Androgen Therapy in Women: A Reappraisal: An Endocrine Society Clinical Practice Guideline,” was published online in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism (JCEM), a publication of the Endocrine Society. Aside from weight gain, acne, lowered voice, unwanted hair growth, are specific known effects, but affects on cholesterol and heart disease are suspected as well. Some women do have deficiencies in testosterone or other male hormones, but sadly it is thought that some testing may have been inaccurate and the Endocrine Society and the CDC have also recently issued test guidelines for women which can be found in the  Partnership for the Accurate Testing of Hormones hormone testing paper. androgens in women.C.
