What are the Health Issues Associated With Testosterone Deficiency?
Testosterone affects bone mass, fat distribution, and muscle development. In addition, testosterone maintains energy levels, fertility, and sex drive.
Over a third of men over the age of 45 may possibly suffer from testosterone deficiency. Men with health issues such as diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure are almost twice as prone to low T; odds being over 2 times higher for obese men, over 2 times higher for men diagnosed with diabetes, and almost 2 times higher for men with high blood pressure.
Men with with high cholesterol, prostate disease, and asthma have a higher chance of having low T than healthy men. Testosterone deficiency can occur at any age in a man’s life — some at birth, some before puberty, and some during adulthood.
