TESTOSTERONE

Too much testosterone can cause weight GAIN; one man gained 35 lbs according to one doctor

Older men, who on average were 61-years-old, who were testosterone-deficient, and who were given injections of testosterone, lost an average of 35 pounds according to a study presented on May 9th, 2012 at the 19th European Congress on Obesity in Lyon, France. However, beware that too much testosterone can cause you to GAIN weight. One doctor told me about a man who came to see him who had been given testosterone by another doctor, and who had gained 35 lbs, but he found his testosterone levels were TWICE as high as they should have been. So, while testosterone replacement may help older men lose weight, too much testosterone may cause weight gain. Read the entire article | Email this article

TESTOSTERONE

Higher body weight associated with lower levels of testosterone

"It is known that BMI is inversely proportional to serum total testosterone concentrations; low serum SHBG levels [sex hormone binding globulin] in obesity contribute to the low serum total testosterone," according to a new paper from UCLA.

"Recent studies show that BMI is also inversely proportional to free testosterone concentration."

"The characteristic low serum testosterone concentrations observed in obese men are also present in men with the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus." Read the entire article | Email this article
