      This study adds to growing evidence that cardiovascular risk from TRT may be less than once feared. The increased risk of sleep apnea in men using TRT is noteworthy. The study strengths include the large number of healthy and young men exposed to TRT. Limitations include the retrospective study design inability to account for granular details of TRT use such as dosage, specific forms of TRT and serum testosterone levels pre- and post-TRT.

      The evidence piles up that TRT is protective against heart disease. The abstract of this observational study says:

      A cohort of 3,422 male United States military service members, retirees and their dependents, aged 40-64 was identified, who were prescribed TRT between 2006-2010 for low testosterone. Men in this cohort were matched on a 1:1 basis by age and comorbidities to men without a prescription for TRT. Event-free survival and rates of thromboembolism, cardiovascular events and OSA were compared between men using TRT and controls with a median follow-up of 17 months.

      Article Preview During 2016, 27,760 men underwent breast-reduction surgery, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That marked a 36 percent increase since 2000. Some plastic surgeons say they have seen as much as a doubling or tripling of business over the past three years, despite the fairly hefty fees they charge ó $4,500 to $8,000, costs that are generally not covered by health insurance.

      For gynecomastia sufferers who canít be helped by a change in a drug prescription, diet or exercise, breast surgery has become a more attractive alternative. Because improved technology allows patients to forgo general anesthesia, the surgery in most cases can be performed on an outpatient basis and the recovery time has been slashed considerably ...

      General Information: Glycine is, structurally, the simplest amino acid that has been discovered. It was one of the earliest amino acids to be isolated from gelatin back in 1820. Glycine is one of the nonessential amino acids for mammals; meaning that they can create it internally from two other amino acids: serine and threonine (1).

      Glycine is found principally in gelatin and silk fibroin. Itís been used therapeutically as a nutrient, and also functions as a rapid inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS) (2). Although glycine is both a simple and nonessential amino acid; experimental animals on low-glycine diets show reduced growth (1, 2). The average ...
      FDA has identified an emerging trend where over-the-counter products, frequently represented as dietary supplements, contain hidden active ingredients that could be harmful. Consumers may unknowingly take products laced with varying quantities of approved prescription drug ingredients, controlled substances, and untested and unstudied pharmaceutically active ingredients. These deceptive products can harm you! Hidden ingredients are increasingly becoming a problem in products promoted for sexual enhancement.

      Remember, FDA cannot test all products on the market that contain potentially harmful hidden ingredients. Enforcement actions and consumer advisories for tainted products only cover a small fraction of the tainted over-the-counter products on the market.

      The 2018 winter flu is pretty much the Ivan Drago of seasonal flu: a lean and mean infecting machine whose goal is to replicate repeatedly and break you.

      Can this replication be curbed? What has the evidence of the past few years uncovered when it comes to cold and flu supplement evidence?

      First, realize the magnitude of the problem. Either you or someone you know has probably had flu-like illness in the past few weeks. Already, three Examine.com team members have been infected and forced to retreat under blankets. The flu vaccine isnít helping so much this year; flu season is peaking right around now, and everyoneís looking for treatment options.

      Next, get this mantra into your head: if youíre consistently low on sleep and eating crappy, youíre much more likely to get sick. Make sleep even more of a priority these following weeks. ...

      Autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) is used increasingly in a variety of settings. PRP injections have been used for decades to improve angiogenesis and wound healing. They have also been offered commercially in urology with little to no data on safety or efficacy. This small study holds out some hope, along with a call for further testing, that the use of PRP may safe and beneficial in urological situations.

      PRP could theoretically improve multiple urologic conditions, such as erectile dysfunction (ED), Peyronie's disease (PD), and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

      Before clinical trials can be performed, safety analysis is desirable. We reviewed an initial series of patients receiving PRFM for urologic pathology to assess safety and feasibility.

      It's a bad day for Big Pharma when it comes to new testosterone formulations. Two new drugs, Tlando and Jatenzo did not gain approval by an FDA advisory panel. Both are oral forms of testosterone undecanoate, meant to be taken daily. The two new drugs were turned down over fears of side effects on cardiovascular health and cholesterol levels. The financial press has the news:

      Lipocine arrived at the FDA meeting armed with data from two phase 3 trials showing Tlando moves average serum testosterone concentrations up into the normal range in most people. That result was enough for the studies to meet their primary endpoints. But the overall dataset failed to quell fears about cardiovascular adverse events and the drugís effect on blood pressure.
