Testosterone cream improved memory in postmenopausal women
When used in postmenopausal women, testosterone therapy improved verbal learning and memory, according to data presented at ENDO 2013.
“Testosterone is an important hormone for women because it is a building block from which estradiol is made, but it also acts independently throughout the body,” Susan R. Davis, MBBS, FRACP, PhD, of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, said during a press conference. “There is evidence that testosterone may have a role in brain function in women and in men. We have shown in two pilot studies that the treatment of postmenopausal women with testosterone was associated with improved verbal learning and memory.”
