Testosterone levels decrease as men age causing symptoms such as weight gain, fat storage, muscle loss, low libido, fatigue and irritability and hormone therapy can help reverse these common side effects of low testosterone. A recent French study concluded that testosterone therapy helps men improve their health through weight loss, combatting the effects of low testosterone.
French Study Findings
This five year French study identified and followed 251 over weight men with Low T between 38 to 82 years old. After five years, the study found the average weight loss was 35 pounds and that the participant’s body mass index (BMI) average dropped to 29 from 34. This BMI drop takes an individual from a class II obesity distinction to overweight. The study also found overall improvements in the cholesterol and triglycerides levels as well as a drop in blood pressure.
The conclusion is that testosterone therapy helps lead to weight loss and health improvements and that the correlative effects provide patients with more energy, the ability to better incorporate physical activity into their lifestyles. As testosterone levels dip below certain levels in a man’s 40s, he is twice as likely to develop obesity and issues including hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Testosterone Therapy through Hormone Therapeutics can help reverse these trends and lead to a healthier life.
