Osteoporosis: Men are at Risk, Too

Low levels of testosterone and age put millions of men at risk for osteoporosis. Low levels of testosterone can lead to decreased bone mineral density (BMD), putting older men at increased risk for bone fractures.

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has been used to replace muscle mass and improve bone density in men, but is associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer. Healthline offers a comprehensive analysis of the situation from Harvard urologist Abraham Morgentaler, M.D. in the article A Harvard Expert Shares His Thoughts on Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
