Adverse health effects of testosterone deficiency in men

Adverse health effects of testosterone deficiency in men

Adverse health effects of testosterone deficiency (TD) in men.
Traish AM. Steroids. 2014 Jun 2. pii: S0039-128X(14)00122-6. doi: 10.1016/j.steroids.2014.05.010. [Epub ahead of print]

Testosterone deficiency, also known as hypogonadism, is a state with sub-optimal circulating levels of testosterone concomitant with clinical signs and symptoms attributed to low physiological testosterone levels.

Sexual dysfunction is the most commonly recognized symptom of testosterone deficiency. However, testosterone also plays a broader role in men's health. A growing body of evidence has established associations between low testosterone levels and multiple risk factors and diseases including the metabolic syndrome, obesity, type 2 diabetes, sarcopenia, frailty, mobility limitations, osteoporosis, cognitive impairment, depression, cardiovascular disease, and reduced longevity.

This summary gives an overview of a comprehensive review of studies that have investigated the detrimental impact of testosterone deficiency on a wide range of health outcomes.
