Your post has raised a question that has been stewing in the back of my head for some time, and that is "Is there a causal relationship between low testosterone and prostate cancer". I ask this question because if the majority of prostate cancers are hormone driven, wouldn't it make sense to explore the cause of low testosterone as a precursor to prostate cancer
Paradoxically PCa feeds off Testosterone but Testosterone does not cause PCA.
With respect to your question though both Low-T and PCa occur a lot together, there is no known causal relationship of either to the other.
Another thing that often occurs with these two is vitamin D deficiency.
No just to you but to all men with low T, have the serum D tested to make sure you are in normal range. If not you can safely dose pretty heavily on vitamin D-3 in my case 10,000 IU plus 100 mcg of K-2 and 1200 Mg of calcium as the former two make the calcium better absorbed./askdrmyers.wordpress.com/page/23/
Is High Dose Vitamin D Dangerous?
Posted October 13, 2010
Dr Myers advised that if you take oatmeal daily, take your vitamin D at night since oatmeal negates any vitamin D benefit.
In years of measuring serum D he has not encountered anyone getting their vitamin D too high but has seen calcium get too high as result of the vitamin D-3 and K-2 boost.
