Ageless Man

1992- Georges Debled : FLEXIBILITÉ ARTERIELLE ET ARTÉRIOSCLÉROSE  (7)

According to the "Vital Statistics Report" of the National Centre for Health Statistics, the cardiovascular diseases are the first cause of death in the world and in the United States (30).

The arteries are involved by two different phenomenon, arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis, which occur often simultaneously.

The pathology of arteriosclerosis is characterized by the replacement of the muscular fibers of the artery by collagen tissue which is inelastic. Muscular fibers need testosterone to maintain  their activity. With the loss of testosterone the muscular fibers became weak and are replaced by fibrous tissue.

This pathology has been described 50 years ago with the ureter under pressure.

The pathology of atherosclerosis is characterized by fat and cholesterol involvement of the arterial wall. This phenomenon is the consequence of cholesterol and lipid accumulation in the body through the impaired sugar and fat metabolism when testosterone is missing.

Arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis are two general involution phenomenon increasing with the decrease of testosterone secretion. It is probably the reason for the elevation of blood pressure with age

 GANGRENE

GANGRENE

Gangrene of toes is sometimes the result of maturity onset diabetes. Testosterone treatment proposed  by Jens Moeller (6) gives spectacular results.

HYPER COAGULATION, VARIX, HEMORROIDES, THROMBOSIS, ANEMIA,

BLOOD HYPERCOAGULABILITY 

The main question about blood is not " how it coagulates" but "how it remains fluid". Thrombosis and embolism are common complications of cardiovascular diseases usually treated by

anticoagulant agents as heparin or dicoumarin. The use of those substances can produce hemorrhages.

The dissolution of the blood clot is under the influence of fibrinolysis agents. On the other hand, a normal blood level of antithrombine III guarantees a good blood fluidity without risk of bleeding.

Fibrinolitic agents of the blood are under the influence of testosterone as reported in the Lancet of the 21 July 1962 by Fearnley and coll. (2).

Claire Bonithon-Kopp and coll. from the Broussais hospital in Paris, who demonstrated in 1988 that low plasmatic levels of male hormone contributes to hypercoagulability and to ischemic heart disease (3).

VARIX, HEMORROIDS AND THROMBOSIS 

Veins like arteries are constituted by muscular fibres. Loss of testosterone produces always an involution of their muscular tissue.

ANEMIA 

The number of red blood cells is  decreased from 10% in castrated men. This is often so in men with low testosterone plasmatic levels. The ischemic heart disease is of course aggravated by this phenomenon.

In 1981, Najean and coll. reported in the American Journal of Medicine the improvement of anemia in a serial of 137 patients when treated by male hormones. Anemia recurs when the therapy is stopped and improve again with androgens (4).

On the other hand, patients with polyglobulia may constitute a problem for therapy with androgens. The normal account of red blood cells varies normally (5,4 + 0,9 millions/milliliter) (5). So patients with 6,3 millions red blood cells/milliliter and presenting a failure in the life maintenance system can be carefully treated with an appropriate monitoring of the androgens without increasing of the number of their red blood cells. Those cases are rare.
