I have been following with great interest studies that look at the long term effects of Testosterone Replacement Therapy. A new report has revealed that men who recently participated in a long term study of Testosterone Replacement Therapy lost an average of 36lbs and shed 3.5 inches from their waistline while on the program as reported at the ENDO 2012 annual meeting. Overall, 95% of the 255 men in the study lost weight during TRT for as long as 5 years, and 97% had reduction in waist circumference.

According to Farid Saad, PhD, "The interesting part is that these changes were unintended and also unexpected. We think that this may be the result of a combined increase in vitality, improved lifestyle behavior, and increased energy expenditure, which is triggered by normalization of testosterone levels," he added.

According to the study, more than half of the men (53%) lost at least 33 lbs., and almost a third lost 44 lbs. or more weight. Similarly, 86% of the men had a least a 2-inch reduction in waist circumference, and 46% dropped 6 inches or more. "This is an amazing response," said Saad. "I don't know many treatments where more than 90% of patients respond in a positive way to the treatment."

The results of this study are in line with the kind of results we are seeing with our patients at AgeWell Men's Institute.
