Boston, Massachusetts – Beginning at age 30, men’s testosterone begins to drop and , on average, testosterone levels drop by 1% or more a year so by age fifty your testosterone levels may be 50% of what they were at age 30. Low testosterone is also referred to as low androgens, andropause, testosterone deficiency or low T.
Some of the common symptoms of low testosterone often include low libido, mood changes, insomnia, fatigue, loss of muscle mass and strength, bone loss, and weight gain.
A report published in the British journal Heart reveals an increased risk of early death from all causes and cardiovascular disease among men who had low testosterone levels.
Researchers in that study analyzed data from 930 already sick men with cardiovascular disease who underwent elective coronary angiography in a cardiac referral center between 2000 and 2002. Total testosterone and bioavailable testosterone were measured on the day of their procedure.
The subjects were followed for about 7 years. 129 deaths occurred over the 930 men during that time. 73 of the deaths were due to their related cardiovascular disease. 24 percent of the participants had either low total or bioavailable testosterone.
Results: 21 percent of those with deficient bioavailable testosterone levels died from all causes over follow-up, compared to 12 percent of those with normal levels.
Low bioavailable testosterone levels were also associated with an increased risk of dying of cardiovascular causes. Moreover, borderline low levels of total testosterone were associated with an increased risk of dying over follow-up.
“Clinical studies of testosterone supplementation in men with low testosterone are associated with reduced visceral adiposity, improved insulin sensitivity and an improved metabolic profile. Studies in subjects with cardiovascular diseases also suggested beneficial effects, with improved functional capacity in heart failure and improved symptoms in subjects with coronary artery disease.” says Dr Ronald C. W. Ma and Peter C. Y. Tong of Chinese University of Hong Kong and Prince of Wales Hospital, as part of the study.
“Compared with research on estrogens and cardiovascular disease, the role of androgens in the pathogenesis of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases has taken a backseat for many years,” they note. “Recent data suggest that this important pathway warrants a lot more attention.”
