Conference Coverage

Testosterone therapy tied to kidney stone risk


 

REPORTING FROM THE AUA ANNUAL MEETING

“It would suggest that those are the real low testosterone patients, not necessarily men who heard an ad or went to a test center,” noted Patrick Shepherd Lowry, MD, associate professor of urology at Scott & White Medical Center, Temple, Texas, who attended the presentation but was not involved in the study. “It’s preliminary, but it’s very interesting. It hasn’t been shown before.”

The Department of Defense funded the study. Dr. McClintock reported having no relevant financial disclosures.
