health Issue for Every Woman - Every Man" width="107" height="160" />“I’ve discussed the possibility of testosterone deficiency resulting in congestive heart failure with Dr. Gordon on several occasions. The concept is interesting and needs to be studied further.”
Dr. Nozad is the Director of Medicine at New York Community Hospital, and Associate Professor of Medicine and Assistant Dean at New York Weill Cornell Medical College.
Testosterone has become a popular media topic lately because of either its improper use to enhance athletic performance, or because of its ability to heighten sexual feelings. There are, however, serious non-sexual health issues intimately related to deficiencies in this hormone. These problems have not been recognized or addressed by the medical community.
Testosterone deficiency affects everyone as they age. It erodes our sexuality until it''s non-existent. It weakens and debilitates, robbing us of the energy and ability to enjoy our lives. It has an intimate relationship with such serious common health problems as osteoporosis, type II diabetes, depression, and congestive heart failure, to name just a few. The health of every man and woman will be significantly affected by whether they become aware of this rarely treated, widespread, disease.
"Dr. Gordon''s insight and knowledge of testosterone replacement therapy has been a welcome addition to my sex therapy practice. It has enabled me to add testosterone replacement to my therapeutic armamentarium, helping to maximize my treatment successes."
