Evidence of a key role for testosterone in the cause and treatment of obesity, the metabolic syndrome and diabetes
This study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, identified the most important symptoms linked to late-onset hypogonadism (low testosterone levels in aging men) in a large group of men representative of the general population. When testosterone levels were also taken into consideration, having these three symptoms and low testosterone levels was a specific diagnosis of late-onset hypogonadism.
Increased risk of dying from cardiovascular disease for men with erectile dysfunction and low testosterone
There is increasing evidence that erectile dysfunction may be a warning sign of a number of disease conditions, such as high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus, depression and coronary heart disease.
Nearly 1700 men attending an andrology clinic for erectile dysfunction were monitored for an average of 4.3 years to find out whether those with low testosterone levels were more likely to suffer a major cardiovascular disease event, such as a heart attack or stroke.
This small, well-designed 12-month study looked at the effect of the testosterone patch on body composition and hormones in 60 men aged ≥55 years who were healthy and not obese, and who had low-to-normal testosterone levels and typical testosterone deficiency symptoms.
