Effect of Methyl Testosterone Administration on Plasma Viscosity in Postmenopausal Women.


BACKGROUND: Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of mortality in women, with an incidence that increases after menopause, hencesuggesting a cardioprotective role of oestrogen. Menopause also results in a decline in androgen levels with resulting symptoms of decreased libido and sexual dysfunction. Recently, there has been a growing interest in the treatment of postmenopausal women with androgens.
