Low Testosterone

Low testosterone is a tough thing to live with. Clinically referred to as hypogonadism, the condition concerns men that are no longer capable of naturally producing healthy levels of the sex hormone testosterone.

Those suffering from low t may experience hair loss, muscle loss, increased body fat, erectile dysfunction, fatigue or even depression. However, there is a solution.

Low testosterone (low t) is a problem for both older and younger men.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is an easy, powerful and cost effective answer for those suffering from a testosterone deficiency. The non-invasive procedure allows for patients suffering from low to to have their testosterone levels artificially balanced back to healthy values. Consequently, hypogonadism patients will see a huge upswing in their quality of life. That being said, a new study suggests that the procedure may have other benefits. There is seemingly a link to testosterone and diabetes.

Testosterone and Type 2 Diabetes

TRT And Type II Diabetes

The European Association For The Study Of Diabetes (EASD) made some interesting findings at this year’s annual event. Among the discoveries discussed, it was determined that testosterone replacement therapy can have greatly beneficial effects for those suffering from type II diabetes.

As provided by EurekaAlert.org, Dr. Farid Saad, Bayer AG, Berlin, Germany and his colleagues recently completed research that has determined that as many as ten years of testosterone treatment are required for the most uplifting of results. However, benefits were found in many of the patients concerning testosterone and diabetes.

The authors of the study concluded: “Long-term testosterone therapy can support diabetes treatment in hypgonadal men with T2D. Its use improved the control of blood glucose, while it deteriorated in patients who had opted not to receive TTh. There were also significant reductions in both weight and waist size in the T-group, which we suggest could have contributed to the observed effects.”

Above having the ability to improve the condition of type II diabetes, long term TRT users may even be able to reverse the condition. Beyond that, the procedure proved to have significant positive effects on the weight of each TRT patient.

There are many benefits to testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
