Androgen Deprivation Therapy: An Essential Guide for Prostate Cancer Patients and Their Loved Ones offers practical solutions and exercises as well as encouragement and support to help prostate cancer patients and their loved ones overcome the adverse effects of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), also known as hormonal therapy. Physical side effects include weight gain, hot flashes, disturbed sleep, erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, and increased risk of osteoporosis, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. These directly reduce the quality of life of prostate cancer patients and their partners, resulting in a higher risk of depression. Approximately one in six men in the western world will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Of those who undergo treatment, about half will be offered ADT at some point to control their disease.
