Connected to Poor Health Outcomes in Men
Deficiency is a major problem in the United States right now. There
are millions of men that are suffering from the deficiency and don't
even know it. Recent research has shown that Low-T is correlated with
a number of different health conditions that have a negative impact
on health and mortality among aging men. Some medical professionals
even say that Testosterone Deficiency is one of the common factors of
common problems that men with Low-T experience are hypertension,
diabetes, and obesity. A new study shows that men with these medical
conditions experience medically Low Testosterone Levels at a rate
which is double that of the general population.
Deficiency Becomes More Likely with Age
scientists that conducted this study discovered that more than one
out of every three men over the age of forty five deal with
chronically Low Testosterone, and that the odds increase dramatically
among men with particular medical conditions such as those mentioned
researchers say that the results of the study suggest that chronic,
age-related medical conditions commonly experienced by aging males
have the ability to cover up issues concerning Low-T, preventing the
patients from getting the treatment they need to balance their
hormones, which has a negative impact on their overall health and
Testosterone goes by many names in the United States. Many people
know it by the name Low-T, which is popular in advertising and
popular culture. In the medical community, Low-T is commonly referred
to as Hypogonadism. Translated into common speech, Hypogonadism
literally means that the male testes are producing abnormally low
levels of Testosterone.
Common is Low-T?
Low- T is
an incredibly common problem in the United States, and it is
estimated that thirteen million males in the country exhibit symptoms
of Low-T. The most common symptoms of Low Testosterone are fatigue,
accumulation of body fat, osteoporosis, loss of facial and body hair,
erectile dysfunction, and loss of sex drive.
mentioned above was released in the International Journal of Clinical
Practice. In this study, researchers gathered data from clinics
across the United States with regard to Low-T. They collected medical
information from more than 2,000 men, all of which were at least
forty five years of age. The only criteria for data collection was
that they visited one of one hundred thirty different primary care
facilities in the United States over a particular two-week time
results were astounding. The medical data revealed that more than one
third of the 2,000+ males had clinically low levels of Testosterone.
Although the exact threshold for Low-T is not set in stone, it is
commonly agreed among those in the medical community that the
threshold for Low-T is lower than 300 nanograms per deciliter.
collecting the data, they divided the 2000+ patients into two groups,
one group was composed of patients that had Clinical Hypogonadism,
and the second group contained all of the patients which had normal
T-Levels. They then looked over the health profiles of each of the
patients in order to discover the rate of incidence of many common
chronic diseases. They found that patients with Low Testosterone were
simply sicker than those that had normal Testosterone Levels. The
exact numbers were as follows:
with Low-T were 1.8 times more likely to suffer from hypertension
with Low-T were 2.1 times more likely to suffer from diabetes
with Low-T were 2.4 times more likely to struggle with obesity
the contrast was not quite as stark, men with asthma and prostate
disease were also at an enhanced risk of experiencing Low-T
researchers involved with this study explain that Low-T is frequently
missed by male patients because they believe that their medical
problems are the result of other medical conditions that they are
experiencing, or they write off their decline in quality of life as
simply an unavoidable aspect of the aging process.
Deficiency Often Goes Untreated
researcher in this study, Dr. Thomas Mulligan of the University of
Florida believes that American patients and physicians do not treat
Low-Testosterone with the respect that such a significant medical
condition truly warrants, and that medical professionals should show
a greater level of concern with regard to the correlation between
overall health and Testosterone Levels.
that are experiencing significant medical issues as a result of
Low-T, Bio-Identical Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy can
help patients feel happier and healthier. Although in the past, some
physicians had reservations regarding Testosterone HRT, new research
suggests that the treatment is much safer than previously believed,
and that hypotheses regarding a link between Testosterone Replacement
Therapy and Prostate and Testicular Cancer were unfounded.
Testosterone HRT can exacerbate existing cancers, there is no
evidence that the treatment actually causes cancer. Researchers
continue to study the treatment in order to more accurately assess
the risks and benefits.
and Heart Disease
Deficiency is becoming an incredibly significant issue in the medical
community. There are three primary reasons for this.
researchers and medical professionals are learning more and more
about how Low Testosterone negatively impacts health, encouraging
more and more doctors to recognize the importance of healthy
there are a larger number of men over the age of 45 than ever
before, as the Baby-Boomers and their children continue to age. A
larger number of people than ever before have the potential to
benefit from Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy technology is becoming
cheaper, more wide-spread, and more talked about. Advertising
campaigns in the last few years have made Testosterone one of the
most widely talked about medical therapies, and the treatments are
cheaper than they have ever been.
years, researchers have been learning about how Testosterone
Deficiency impacts a variety of cardiovascular problems, including
heart disease. Testosterone Deficiency also increases the risk of
elevated blood sugar, blood pressure, and incidence of depression.
Three Year Testosterone Deficiency Review
review was recently published by the Journal of Clinical
Endocrinology and Metabolism which has culled information from nine
different clinical studies spanning from 1970-2013 in order to
collect information regarding how Testosterone Deficiency impacts
overall health in male patients. They have discovered that men that
have abnormally low levels of Testosterone have a higher risk of
experiencing heart disease, and a higher risk of dying from the
disease, than males that have normal Testosterone Levels.
is important for a lot of different reasons, and its impact on heart
health is just one of many ways that Testosterone benefits male
health. Testosterone is vitally important to male sexual health, and
men with Low-T experience both low libido and issues with sexual
function. They also have trouble building muscle, maintaining strong
bones, and keeping fat off of their bodies. Low Testosterone is an
important metabolite, and when the body does not produce sufficient
Testosterone, it triggers changes in metabolism which significantly
impact health and wellness.
Unsure How Heart Health and Testosterone are Connected
the researchers amassed a large amount of data, they do not yet have
enough specific information to hypothesize why Testosterone
Deficiency is explicitly tied to an increased risk of heart disease.
They can make a few educated guesses, however. They believe that it
is possible that Low-T could encourage the formation of blood clots
which could contribute to abnormal heart rhythms which can eventually
cause larger heart problems.
also the potential that the correlation between the two conditions
may simply be the mutual result of poor health choices. Based upon
only the data of this study, there is no way to establish Low-T as a
direct cause of cardiovascular problems, although there are other
studies which suggest that Testosterone Deficiency does have the
potential to directly increase the risk of certain heart conditions.
other studies which show that Testosterone Hormone Replacement
Therapy does not have the ability to decrease the risk of heart
disease, which suggests that both Low-T and Heart Disease are
symptoms of other chronic medical conditions.
to learn more about how Low-T and Heart Health are related, there
will need to be many more studies conducted, but for now, medical
professionals recommend to only use Testosterone HRT if they have
clinically low levels of Testosterone and they are explicitly
suffering from symptoms of Low-T.
and Type-2 Diabetes Are Linked
If you are
a man over the age of forty five and you are having trouble with your
libido and sexual function because of Type-2 Diabetes, your real
problem is likely the result Low-T.
Fenig of Chesapeake Urology Associates explains that there is growing
evidence that Low-T is tightly correlated with diabetes, high
cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity. The link between Low-T
and Type-2 Diabetes is powerful, and as many as one out of every
three men with that condition are likely suffering from Low-T. After
the age of forty-five, men with Type-2 Diabetes have twice the risk
of Hypogonadism than those that do not.
Awareness of Low-T
Low-T is a
serious concern for those that suffer from Type-2 Diabetes, because
Low Testosterone has a negative impact on male sexual ability and
desire, and it impacts health in a number of different ways as well.
According to a recent survey published by the American Diabetes
Association, most males, as well as their significant others, are
oblivious of the correlation between Low-T and Diabetes. In addition
to the sexual symptoms of Low-T, it can also contribute to fatigue,
lack of energy, loss of muscle mass, accumulation of body fat, and
loss of bone mineral density.
to their research, the American Diabetes Association estimates that
there are up to thirteen million males that suffer from Low-T, and
then nine out of every ten cases go without treatment. If you suffer
from Type-2 Diabetes, especially if you are over the age of
forty-five and overweight, it is important to be aware of the
underlying symptoms of Low-T.
