• Meta-analysis Finds TRT Effective for ED

      A recent meta-analysis reported that TTh (testosterone therapy) was ineffective for ED (erectile dysfunction.) This new meta-analysis comes to a different conclusion and finds testosterone therapy significantly improves erectile dysfunction and other parameters of sexual function.

      Out of 137 retrieved articles, 14 were included in the study enrolling 2298 participants, with a mean follow-up of 40.1 wk and mean age of 60.2 Ī 6.5 yr. Using IIEF-erectile function domain (IIEF-EFD) as the outcome, we found that TTh significantly improved erectile function compared with placebo (mean difference = 2.31 [1.41;3.22] IIEF-EFD score, p < 0.0001). Patients with more severe hypogonadism (total T < 8 nmol/l) reported greater changes in final IIEF-EFD score when compared with those with a milder T deficiency (total T < 12 nmol/l; 1.47 [0.90;2.03] and 2.95 [1.86;4.03] for total T < 12 nmol/l and <8 nmol/l, respectively, Q = 5.61, p = 0.02). The magnitude of the effect was lower in the presence of metabolic derangements, such as diabetes and obesity. Other aspects of sexual function, as evaluated by IIEF subdomains, were also improved with TTh including libido, intercourse satisfaction, orgasm, and overall sexual satisfaction.

        Yet almost all guys on TRT still need PDE5 inhibitors and N.O. stacks to get and maintain a usable erection.

        For me, I've found when I reduce pornography and cut back on masturbation, it has a significant effect on my ability to achieve and maintain an erection.

        I think the ED benefits are more pronounced in younger men compared to older men with comorbidities.

        It seems that at least 50% of studies on TRT are a joke... either due to the lack of management or the study criteria being out to lunch. Most MD's still follow that 1940 study that says it causes cardiac problems.
