In a study conducted by the University at Buffalo endocrinologists, researchers discovered that about 40% of obese participants had lower-than-normal testosterone levels. The percentage escalated to 50% among men who also had diabetes. It also was found that as body mass increase levels rose, testosterone levels dropped. Given the fact that about one-third of the United States’ population is obese, this news is concerning for men.

Effects of Low Testosterone

A decrease in testosterone levels is a normal part of the aging process for men. For every year beyond age thirty, male testosterone levels decrease by about one percent. Currently, over thirteen million men have low testosterone levels.

Low testosterone levels can affect sexual functioning including a reduced desire for sex, fewer spontaneous erections, and infertility. The ADA maintains that 70% of men with low testosterone levels have erectile dysfunction, and 63% have experienced a decrease in sex drive. One study showed that men who lose significant amounts of weight reported having better sexual functioning.

Physical changes may also present such as increases body fat, decreased strength and muscle mass, fragile bones, decreased body hair, hot flashes, and increased fatigue.

Low testosterone levels can also cause sleep disturbances such as insomnia and emotional changes such as sadness or depression.

Further Implications
A new study done on mice has demonstrated that low testosterone and obesity not only contribute to diabetes but also can damage the brain.
