VELA NAVARRETE, R. et al. Testosterone, endothelial function, cardiovascular health and androgen deficiency in the old man. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.3, pp.173-178. ISSN 0004-0614.

Testosterone determination in an old men population has demonstrated its about the as general health marker, not only sexual, prompting a greater in to arrest for this analytic determination and the potential relations of testosterone with other markers of cardiovascular health, obesity, hypertension, erectile dysfunction, sarcopenia, metabolic syndrome, ageing, and other conditions. We specifically review the relationship between cardiovascular health, erectile dysfunction, and androgen deficiency, processes easily recognizable, prevented and treated. Current information gives such a prominence to testosterone as a health reference that its determination seems to be inexcusable in the ageing male consult.

Keywords : Testosterone; Endothelial; Androgen deficiency.
