New TRT Hematocrit Study on Trans Men | 1,000 Men, 20 Years

what’s going on guys texture levels here
came across an interesting article on
you know the hematocrit issue with men
on trt
and it was an interesting article
because it’s not the men that you would
think of
now this study was a 20-year study with
almost 1100 men
so a 20-year follow-up study to be exact
and they were talking about you know the
increase in hematocrit
and uh we’ll do a quick medical
disclaimer and jump right in it’s all
about humanity
so the title of the article risk factor
for blood clots occurs in more than 10
percent of transgender men
using testosterone as i mentioned before
this was a 20-year follow-up study on
almost 1100 transgender females that
transitioned to men using testosterone
and they wanted to
test the effects on hematocrit and right
risk factor for blood clots occurs in
more than 10
of transgender men so it’s about you
know this study is checking the
hematocrit levels
and it’s basically saying that higher
hematocrit levels are a risk for stroke
but something interesting happened
toward the end or not at the end
erythrocytis with the hematocrit of more
than 50 occurred in 11
of participants measurement of more than
occurred in 3.7 and 54 was 0.5
so you know on on my blood test it says
this one’s using 50. so what 14
15 of uh these women that transitioned
to men with testosterone had
higher hematocrit you know elevated in
the upper range or above the range
depending on how you look at it
so they said tobacco use and being
overweight were one of the biggest
factors that contributed to this and
that makes 100
sense but one thing they did say that
was interesting
long-acting and decanoid injections they
as you know a cause that caused higher
and they actually mentioned that for
if they’re using endecanoate they may
want to switch them to
gels but they didn’t mention incipient
they didn’t mention the nancy
um this study or this article was
probably written out of a country that
mainly uses them decanoid
but i just found it interesting that
they called out the super long acting
in this study so another thing that was
interesting and i’ve
mentioned this on my channel they said
that the
biggest hematocrit jump happened in the
first year and it was from
39 to 45 so six percent jump
and they said although there was only a
slight continuation of this increase
over the following
20 years the probability of developing
still increased by 10 after one year and
by 38
after 10 years so it’s interesting that
the biggest jump
happens in the first year so it kind of
jumps up on the year for the first year
and then
slowly creeps up over time at least in
uh women that transition into men and
i’ve seen it mentioned a couple other
times that
you know it seems the the raising of an
adequate seems to plateau at about a
year and only go up slightly
and some people it doesn’t go up
slightly they reach like a full
so what was interesting was not just
what was in the article
but what wasn’t an article you know it’s
an increase in the risk of stroke
because of higher hematocrit and you’d
think that
in a study a 20-year study on 1100
if you were writing an article on that
would you include
anyone that did have a stroke or would
you leave that out
i mean the whole article is about you
know the risk of stroke because of high
but nowhere in the article does it
mention if any of these
women that transitioned to men ever had
a stroke
i don’t know if any did but they left it
out of the article
so i’m not going to say that you know
none of these women had that
but it seems like that would be like a
key part of the
of the study in the article you know
these you know 10
of these women had higher hematocrit a
high risk of stroke
but they’re not going to mention at all
if any of them actually did have a
so i’ve seen other studies and i think i
have another video or two
on this but a lot of these studies that
are coming back i mean
they don’t really they don’t correlate a
higher hematocrit from trt
to strokes now there is some correlation
from higher inadequate based on
you know like smoking being obese
whatever else
but they’re not really making a direct
connection between
higher hematocrit strictly from trt
and people actually getting strokes and
i think a lot of this where it stems
from is that
high hematocrit has been linked to
strokes from lifestyle
so that just kind of carried over into
trt because trt
raises an adequate and as a as a
scientist or
you know someone a researcher you know
you would definitely that would be one
of the first things you look at
but after a couple of these studies keep
coming out and they don’t
they’re not really showing the
correlation so i mean i hope there is no
correlation and i hope that
no one has any structure from trt so i
think there’s over time they’re
showing that trt is not as dangerous as
what they make it sound
heart attack stroke prostate cancer
that’s the
big three that they throw out and i hope
over time they do more studies and i
hope those studies do prove that trt is
a lot safer
i actually hope that it proves that
being on trt and having normal
testosterone levels
is healthier than living life at super
low testosterone levels
but we’ll see those see if they ever
come out
but that’s it guys just wanna do a quick
video as always
you’re awesome and get your levels
