  1. This video today is about weight training for men on hormone therapy for prostate cancer. Hormone therapy is also called 'Androgen Deprivation Therapy' (ADT) because it robs a man of androgens. The main androgen is testosterone. Androgens fuel prostate cancer.

    Exercise has many benefits

    In today's teleconference the role of exercise in reducing depression was discussed. Researchers are finding that there are many different ways in which exercise affects our bodies. Tony Maxwell, one of our Committee Members is working on a Movember initiative, TrueNTH. TrueNTH has an excellent resource on its website about exercise for men with prostate cancer. Click on this link to read this information. There are a number of pages on the website about exercise. They're well worth a read!
  7. ADT carries with it a heightened risk of depression as well as cognitive effects. The cognitive impact, though, is neither well defined nor consistent. The data collectively suggest that the negative impact of ADT on patients directly (and on their intimate partners indirectly) are greater for younger than older men. Across the array of adverse effects, physical exercise appears to have the greatest potential to address the psychological effects of ADT, both in men who are receiving ADT and in their partners. Donovan KA, Walker LM, Wassersug RJ, Thompson LM, Robinson JW. 2015. Psyc

In recent clinical trials by Edith Cowan University exercise therapy has been shown to be beneficial for men with advanced prostate cancer and bone metastases. In particular, aerobic and resistance exercise is safe and effective for men with bone metastases when supervised and individually tailored to avoid direct loading of bones with secondary tumours. It is essential that you consult with an accredited exercise physiologist who specialises

    ADT affects the brain

    Cognitive impairment can occur in cancer patients who are treated with a variety of therapies, including radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy. After chemotherapy treatment it is commonly called "chemo brain." Signs of cognitive impairment include forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, problems recalling information, trouble multi-tasking and becoming slower at processing information. The number of people who experience cognitive problems following cancer therapy is broad, with an estimated range of 15 to 70 percent. There have been several studies analyzing this side e
