Testosterone gel significantly increase lean body mass in ageing males with relatively low bio-available testosterone and waist circumference above 94 cm: a double blinded, randomized, placebo controlled 6 months study

Background: Testosterone replacement therapy in severe hypogonadism is indicated, however, the treatment of late onset hypogonadism (LOH) is debated, especially what the diagnostic criteria should be. In LOH bio-available testosterone probably gives a more accurate index of gonadal status as a diagnostic criterion as it takes SHBG into consideration. SHBG is known to increase with ageing, however, SHBG is also negatively influenced by insulin and visceral adiposity.<p clas...

Birth weight and the relation to lean body mass and BMC in healthy men at peak bone mass: results from the Odense Androgen Study

Frederiksen Louise , Nielsen Torben Leo , Wraae Kristian , Hagen Claus , Andersen Marianne , Brixen Kim

Background: Birth weight has been associated with low bone mass in later life. Previous studies, however, have relied on self-reported data on birth weight, included select populations, or been of a limited size. Moreover, it is unclear if the association between birth weight and bone mass is be mediated by body weight, lean body mass, or fat mass.Aim: We hypothesize that birth weight is associated with peak bone mass in men independent of current lean b...

Introduction: We questioned the justification of general recommendations for assessment of hypopituitarism in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI), and aimed to describe the prevalence of hypopituitarism in a national TBI population of patients admitted to a Danish hospital in 2008, as compared to healthy controls.Patients and methods: We included 463 patients (18–65 years) hospitalized ≥24 h, with more than subtle TBI as indicated by lo...
