Obesity is strongly linked to low testosterone levels in men

Obesity is strongly linked to low testosterone levels in men
This summary gives an overview of four research papers which discuss the link between obesity and low testosterone levels (also known as hypogonadism): one review focusing on the association between obesity, diabetes and low testosterone, and three clinical studies. The studies looked at the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and testosterone levels in men, and the effects of weight loss on testosterone levels in a group of very obese men (BMI >40 kg/m2) undergoing weight loss surgery; the link between obesity and testosterone levels in young men aged 14-20 years; and the relationship between health and lifestyle factors, including weight loss, and testosterone levels in men as they get older.
