PLOS ONE Misleading

Posted by Pelletdoc on 25 Feb 2014 at 21:28 GMT

Numerous studies have shown that natural testosterone pellet therapy can reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and prostate cancer. A key component of this treatment is an accurate interpretation of a patient’s laboratory values. In the PLOS One study, this data was not considered.
Bio-identical testosterone pellet therapy allows for the optimization of each patient’s hormone levels to achieve a level that is above a discriminatory zone that reduces heart disease and the other diseases noted above. Dosage optimization is not possible with creams and gels.
