Study reveals that deficiency of testosterone level in body could be the potential cause of Alzheimer’s of human being especially the senior citizen. A team of researchers including Saint Louis University scientist have pioneered the revealing that testosterone deficiency in older men and onset of Alzheimer’s has co-relation between them.

Alzheimer’s is a chronic disease which contributes brain cells destructions causing extreme amnesiatic syndromes and life altering problems with behavioral syndromes.

A report from National Institute on Aging, as much as 5.1 million Americans is affected with Alzheimer’s syndromes and it is one of the seventh contributory factors of death in the United States. Treatment for Alzheimer’s is existing but there is no acknowledged cure for this syndrome.

Dr. John E. Morley, director of the division of geriatric medicine at Saint Louis University said in a press release that testosterone deficiency in body calls for immediate attention especially for those suffering from amnesia and other behavioral symptoms.

Dr. Leung-Wing Chu, who is chief of the division of geriatric medicine at Queen Mary Hospital at the University of Hong Kong led the study which was published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The study was done on 153 Chinese men of 55 age groups with no amnesia and behavioral problems. It was reported that 47 of the men had symptoms of mild behavioral and amnesiac syndromes.

Within one year, 10 of the cognitively impaired men have complete Alzheimer’s symptoms. The study found that these men had testosterone deficiency in their tissue, increased level of ApoE 4, the ApoE gene variation that finally leads to develop risk for Alzheimer’s disease and high blood pressure.
