FoxNews, 3:39A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (AMA) shows a link between hormone replacement therapy taken after menopause and increased risk of death from breast cancer for women. For this reason, women should not have hormone therapy for a prolonged period of time, or without close supervision of a doctor. Dr. Samadi talks about a similar condition and relationship in men's health. As men get older, their level of testosterone decreases which leads to weight gain, fatigue, lower sexual drive and relationship in men. Some doctors in the medical community call this condition "male menopause." Dr. Samadi cautions men not take hormones for a prolonged period of time, or without being closely supervised by a doctor, as it can lead to increase death from prostate cancer, for example. Samadi concludes that here are other treatments available to women for menopause like antidepressants and anti anxiety agents. It's essential to care for each patient differently with individualized treatment plans.
