Obesity is associated with decreased testosterone levels in males. Testosterone is synthesized by testosterone synthetic enzymes, which are stimulated by luteinizing hormone (LH). Testosterone can also be converted to estradiol via the aromatase. The objective of this study was to examine the factors related to testosterone synthesis and conversion, and to systematically evaluate the key processes that influence testosterone levels in male obesity. Three hundred and two male subjects (aged 25-45 years old) ...
To summarize the research evidence on promotion of testosterone for 'Low T', or age-related hypogonadism.
Obesity causes secondary hypogonadism (HG) in men. Standard testosterone (T) replacement therapy improves metabolic parameters but leads to infertility.
Sedentary lifestyle and over-nutrition are the main causes of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the same causes are major triggers of hypogonadism. Many T2D patients show low testosterone levels while hypogonadal men seem to be prone to become diabetic. Testosterone plays a major role in the regulation of muscle mass, adipose tissue, inflammation and insulin sensitivity and is therefore indirectly regulating several metabolic pathways, while T2D is commonly triggered by insulin resistance, increas...
To evaluate the effects of a treatment with leuprolide acetate (LA) on bladder overactivity as well as the expression of gonadotropin releasing hormone receptor (GnRH-R), and neurofilaments NF68 and NF200 in female rats with overactive bladder induced by castration.

Testosterone treatment of men with low testosterone is common and, although relatively short-term, has raised concern regarding an increased risk of prostate cancer (CaP). We investigated the association between modest-duration testosterone treatment and incident aggressive CaP.
Testosterone is commonly measured using immunoassays, yet concerns with the accuracy and quality of testing by these methods exist, particularly for low testosterone concentrations. Study objectives were to evaluate selective performance characteristics, including functional sensitivity (FS), of 5 automated immunoassays for total testosterone.
Testosterone is a natural hormone which is essential to maintain physical and emotional wellbeing in men. Male hypogonadism is an endocrine condition of testosterone deficiency with the potential to cause multiple morbidities and psychosocial complaints. The condition can be of primary (testicular), secondary (hypothalamic-pituitary) or so-called functional origin (as a result of inflammatory conditions, obesity or chronic illness). Testosterone deficiency can cause symptoms of sexual nature, insulin resist...
As men age, serum testosterone levels decrease. This reduction in testosterone levels may cause symptoms leading to hypogonadism. In addition, the presence of a varicocele can impair Leydig cell function, resulting in decreased testosterone production in men. Varicocelectomy and testosterone replacement therapy are both viable treatment options for hypogonadism in elderly male patients. The correct modality of treatment will vary for each patient, but education is essential in order to help men understand t...
There has been a marked increase in testosterone prescriptions in the past decade resulting in a growing need to give practicing clinicians proper guidance on the evaluation and management of the testosterone deficient patient.
To retrospectively evaluate and compare safety and efficacy of short and long-acting testosterone (T) parenteral formulations over five years in transmen.
It is suggested that testosterone may play a part in the higher prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in males compared to females. Previous studies have reported elevated postnatal testosterone levels in children and women with ASD but not in men. We compared levels of salivary testosterone across 67 undergraduate males (Mage 19.5 yrs, SD 1.92) selected for low, mid-range and high levels of autistic traits assessed using the Autism-spectrum Quotient. Analyses revealed no significant differences in t...
The role of testosterone in the development of prostate cancer and the safety of testosterone therapy (TTh) after prostate cancer treatment, or in the setting of active surveillance, remains controversial. There are many concerns about using TTh in men, particularly those with a history of prostate cancer, ranging from a possible increased risk of cardiovascular disease to cancer progression or recurrence. With many prostate cancer patients living longer, and hypogonadism having significant morbidity, much ...
Assessment of free testosterone (FT) might help evaluate androgen status in subjects with borderline total testosterone (T) and/or altered SHBG levels. However, validity of different methods to measure or calculate FT is matter for debate.
The effects of testosterone on cardiovascular disease (CVD) as reported in literature have been ambiguous. Recently, the interplay between testosterone and estradiol as assessed by testosterone/estradiol (T/E2) ratio was suggested to be better informative on the normal physiological balance. Considering the role in CVD, we hypothesized that a low T/E2 ratio in men with CVD is associated with increased inflammation, a more unstable plaque and a worse cardiovascular outcome.
To project the prevalence of obesity across the WHO European region and examine whether the WHO target of halting obesity at 2010 levels by 2025 is achievable.
Since a decade, we observe an expansion of the use of testosterone against different components of the metabolic syndrome in men. More particularly in the obese man, indications for the prescription of this hormone are not well defined because of the contradictory studies which do not allow the establishment of a clear consensus. This article proposes a diagnostic procedure for the detection of hypogonadism in obese men. It clarifies the indications of use of testosterone in this particular context but also...
This study examines steroid production in fathers watching their children compete, extending previous research of vicarious success or failure on men's hormone levels. Salivary testosterone and cortisol levels were measured in 18 fathers watching their children play in a soccer tournament. Participants completed a survey about the game and provided demographic information. Fathers with higher pregame testosterone levels were more likely to report that referees were biased against their children's teams, and...
Early obesity onset is a risk factor for specific comorbidities in adulthood, but whether this relationship is present in men and women with severe obesity is unknown. This study aimed to examine whether obesity onset in childhood or adolescence, as compared with adulthood, is associated with higher odds of comorbidities in men and women with severe obesity.
Clinical and experimental studies suggested that testosterone or estradiol alone supplementation may have antidepressant-like effects. However, the synergistic effect of testosterone/estradiol on the treatment of depression and the underlying mechanism remain largely unknown. Here, we hypothesized that an appropriate dosage of testosterone combined with estradiol may became a new therapeutic strategy in depression. Our results indicated that an appropriate testosterone/estradiol ratio of 10:1 (10 mol/L te...
Medical management of obesity can result in significant weight loss and reduce the burden of obesity-related complications. This report employs a new conceptual model to quantify engagement with obesity care and associated determinants in the US adult population.
Obesity currently affects 78.6 million people (33%) in the United States and is expected to increase to over 50% of the population by 2030. This epidemic is fueled by the growing rate of obesity in adolescents. The new science of obesity indicates that there is a tipping point at which genetic resetting occurs and it is reached when adipose tissue dysfunction occurs. It is becoming clear that obesity is less an ongoing personal choice than a fact of biology. With this review, we aim to describe the epidemio...
Body mass index(BMI) is a calculation index of general obesity. Waist circumference(WC) is a measure of body-fat distribution and always used to estimate abdominal obesity. An important trait of general obesity and abdominal obesity is their propensity to coexist. Using one single measure of obesity could not estimate persons at risk for GSD precisely.
