Summary
Research on testosterone is increasing in many senses; however there is still much controversy regarding its physiology and clinical use. This book addresses these topics, providing a broad over℗Ưview about testosterone, from its basic fea℗Ưtures to the most recent evidence of clin℗Ưical applicability. Also, specific conditions in which testosterone play a pivotal role are discussed in detail, such as hypogonadism, misuse and abuse, puberty, cardiovascular effects and testosterone therapy. Although not essential for survival, testosterone represents the essence of male biological function, being the important testicular androgen in men. Low serum testosterone levels are asso℗Ưciated with cardiovascular morbidity, meta℗Ưbolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and mortality. Conversely, increased serum levels of testosterone may lead to deleteri℗Ưous events. In general, there is increasing evidence that serum testosterone is a major biomarker status of menĺls health in general. Testosterone: From Basic to Clinical Aspects is an indispensable reference for all those who seek state-of-the-art knowledge regarding this hormone, from basic issues (including pharma℗Ưcology and physiology) through clinical aspects (related diseases and supplementation ther℗Ưapy)
