Finally, the Cochrane Library, an international research evaluation organization has reported that testosterone therapy in post menopausal women may improve sexual function. The down side is the reduction in HDL or “good” cholesterol that seems to be affected. The study involved 23 clinical trials and almost 2000 women over a six month period. There appeared to be no other significant changes as related to breast cancer, mood changes, fatigue, or sense of well being.
In conclusion, the jury is still out on the value of synthetic testosterone therapy in both older men and women. Further research on will be necessary before any conclusive indications on the effectiveness of testosterone supplements can be realized and supported.
