Testosterone level and mortality in elderly men with systolic chronic heart failure - 0 views

  •  
    Good article.  Heart failure in men associated with lower Total Testosterone and estimated Free Testosterone. The severity of disease was associated with lower Testosterone levels.   I wish they would have measured free levels not estimated them.  

    Increased SHBG concentrations was associated increased CHF as well.

    This study found no association with mortality.

    Study finds that Testosterone therapy improves insulin sensitivity, muscle strength and function in women with advanced CHF.  No levels were noted.  If this is similar to men, I would expect a low Testosterone, which Testosterone replacement would then increase physiologic performance.

    This early in the evaluation: but testosterone therapy in those men with CHF is of considerable benefit.  This would improve the catabolic:anabolic state, reduce inflammation, improve strength/endurance and reduce CVD risk

[Serum thyroid hormone levels correlate with cardi... [J Cardiol. 1993] - PubMed result - 0 views

  • Patients with ventricular tachycardia demonstrated significantly lower serum values of FT3 and FT3/FT4, and significantly higher values of rT3. Serum thyroid hormone levels can provide a quantitative index for evaluating the severity of chronic heart failure and predicting ventricular tachycardia.
  •  
    Full thyroid evaluation, not TSH or just T4, is predictive in severity of CHF and heart tachycardia
