    "The most likely explanation for the mental function-muscle strength link is that there is something going in the body that causes both muscle weakness and loss of mental ability, Boyle said." This quote from your link is interesting. Testosterone is just that which causes muscle weakness and loss of mental ability. I wish the scientists who studied this knew more about andropause, and what they would say.

    My father and his sister, died of Alzheimer's. Their brother also had it.

    The few doctors you can find (and afford) who went for extra education for and stay up to date with male hormonal health and andropause (far more than what endocrinologists know) found that low testosterone is sometimes the precursor of many diseases if left untreated, including Alzheimer's. This does not mean all men or people with Alzheimer's had low testosterone. It means that untreated low testosterone can in many cases lead to diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's and many more diseases.

    Testosterone is important in both men and women to simply maintain health, and needed in much larger amounts in men. The hormone is so important that it affects normal functioning of our brain (thinking, thinking clearly, attitude, mental and emotional health, mood, feeling good), our ability to maintain muscle and bone, and many more vital functions. A loss of muscle strength and difficulty gaining muscle, a loss of mental ability and functioning, are among the common symptoms of low testosterone.

    Thanks for the articles.

    Thanks for sharing this. My mother died last year from dementia/Alzheimer's. She was way too young I know but she was one of the rare few to get it so young. A t first it was just diagnosed as dementia but at the end it was Alzheimer's.

    She is what inspires me to try and work out everyday and live life to the fullest.

    This was a nice read.

    Well actually I also heard this:
    Depression damages brain cells, BUT
    Working out regularly repairs them.

    I was wondering about that, how depression can alter not only a person's emotional state but his mental state as well.
    Well good thing i do work out almost everyday, otherwise i would've gone deeper into...

    What Does Your Walking Speed Say About Your Alzheimer’s Risk?

    "Slight changes in the way a person walks, like slowing down or developing a variable stride, could be early signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

    Previous studies have linked walking speed in the elderly with overall good health and even longevity, but the current research is among the first to associate gait with risk of Alzheimer’s."
