    "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." REFERENCE
