Title: Testosterone and Anti-depressant Augmentation in an Elderly Male
Men and women generally have a marked decline of testosterone as they reach the 40's and beyond. There is some debate as to the best way to diagnosis this, but I feel the primary important labs are the free testosterone level (not total testosterone), DHT, estradiol, and the sex hormone binding globulin. Men need a PSA to check their prostate and woman should have their progesterone hormone checked. (Natural progesterone may decrease breast cancer).
Here we discuss flawed testosterone research as it relates to mood, and the success we have had with bio-identical testosterone in some men with subnormal testosterone, or even those with "low normal" blood levels.
