The global population is aging, and this important text explores the common health concerns that accompany male aging, particularly the effects of declining testosterone levels, or andropause. Here is the first and only book to comprehensively review this topic. Using a case-based approach with supporting evidence, the book examines treatment for the biological and physiological changes that stem from a wide range of age-related problems associated with androgen deficiency. You will read about such topics as erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, obesity, growth hormone replacement for aging men, nutriceuticals, hypogonadism, and much more. Findings cited from recent literature ensure reliable analysis in every chapter, and 100 charts and graphs clarify research and key points.The clinical implications of male aging extend into many disciplines--orthopedics, urology, endocrinology, cardiology, and others. Appropriate treatment and care are crucial. Highly informative and authoritative, this concise reference is a must for all practitioners treating the aging male patient.

Aging Men's Health: A Case-Based Approach based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is the first book in this field, and it should appeal to those who treat men. Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists in the fields of family medicine, internal medicine, urology, endocrinology, gerontology and others will benefit. Each chapter begins with a case and ends with the discussion of the case. In between, the scientific literature is presented and treatment options explained. Topics covered include androgen deficiency, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, prostate cancer, dementia, heart disease, arthritis and other as it relates to men. Gender specific issues are discussed. There is an interesting, thought provoking chapter on preventive gerontology. We have women's health, and I am glad that there is some acknowledgement that men do have specific disease issues as they age.
