Can Bad Health Be Caused By Low Testosterone Levels?

By Anju Mathur, MD

Recently, there has been evidence linking low testosterone levels in men and the likelihood that they will develop Type 2 Diabetes; in fact, men with normal testosterone levels are less likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes.

A report in the Journal of Diabetes Care, authored by scientific researchers, states that when men have low to normal testosterone levels they will have a higher tendency to develop diabetes than men with higher testosterone levels, regardless of their level of obesity. Dr. Elizabeth Selvin, a doctor from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, commented that research studies are increasingly showing lower testosterone levels could be an indicator of the future onset of diabetes; she also noted that men suffering from diabetes usually have low testosterone levels.

Hypogonadism is the medical term for low testosterone, and it is presumed to be an issue with roughly 13 million adult males in the US. As a man ages, he experiences certain health issues including less healthy function, lower libido, lower density of bodily and facial hair and weaker bone strength. The condition an also cause muscular wasting and above all, can lead to diabetes.

Over the course of a man's adult life, his levels of testosterone, one of the most important male hormones also known as androgens, will be greatly diminished. Men experience something similar to a woman when going through menopause, and this is called Andropause. It is estimated that low testosterone levels can be found in as many as one-third of all men aged 45 and up.

Researchers have found that about one-third of all male Type 2 Diabetics are affected by low testosterone levels. Thus, any man suffering from Type 2 Diabetes has a higher chance of simultaneously having a lower than optimal testosterone level.

A more recent study has also indicated that there is double the risk for more mature men of suffering from testosterone depletion if they are obese, have high blood pressure, or diabetes.

Also, it has been discovered that men experiencing chronic health conditions have a higher risk of lowered testosterone levels, as do roughly one-third of all men 45 years of age or more.

Prominent doctors as well as those without extensive medical knowledge have failed to see the overwhelmingly positive aspects of healthy testosterone levels in a man's body. As a man ages, it is desirable for him to keep many of the characteristics of his youth, and using supplemental testosterone can be an easy and reasonably priced way to achieve that. Since it is also very safe,it could potentially bring competition to all the drug companies that currently produce medications that deal with the symptoms of aging. In other words, if testosterone supplementation increases in popularity, drug profits will suffer drastically!

Every man should examine his testosterone levels, especially upon reaching the age of 35. In addition, his blood lipid level and glucose level should be checked, as well as his antigen level in his prostate. These tests determine his overall state of health and can indicate whether he can benefit from the replacement of testosterone in his body.

When analyzing lab results for the total amount of testosterone, the entire number is looked at, as well as the measure of what amount is available for the body to use. One can keep the range of 251 to 1000 ng/dL as a reference in interpreting the results, and must also determine what amount is bioavailable.

Hopefully more physicians will begin to test for glucose tolerance and also measure the level of insulin that coincides with it, as these factors are often overlooked by medical professionals. When the level of glucose tolerance is no longer at its best, a condition called metabolic syndrome can occur. In addition, one is at risk for pre-diabetes and an inability to withstand insulin. Glycated hemoglobin appears within red blood cells when glucose molecularly attaches to hemoglobin upon the rise of one's blood sugar. This form of hemoglobin, also known as glycosylated hemoglobin, takes the scientific acronym of HbA1c. One can expect to endure complications of a diabetic nature once HbA1c levels go above six percent, and this is a factor that suggests a rise in blood sugar over a longer period of time.

It is suggested that male diabetics, those with an adult-onset condition, can gain positive results from reversing low testosterone using hormone replacement therapy; in fact the results are even greater when those who start supplementing testosterone have already been treating their symptoms with a nutritional diet and suggested medications. After some time, a number of men have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for hypoglycemic medications as well as notice a healthier level of HbA1c. Testosterone supplementation can even cut the need for insulin in half for some men that must rely on insulin to treat their condition. Other benefits include a slimmer waist and profile, more vigorous and rewarding exercise routines, as well as an overall greater sense of well being.

In essence, one can actually change the course of diabetes, and even reduce the need for diabetic medication over the course of one's life by changing the level of testosterone to that of a youthful person. Aging men can use testosterone therapy to gain more energy and once again feel that youthful vigor. Above that, medical records have proven to show an improvement with one's blood sugar level, libido health, and the ability to heal from wounds, resulting in better resilience for any man.
