Why testosterone hormone is so important in mens health and how to increase its levels
Previous researches have shown that roughly 50% of diabetic men experience low testosterone problem. Some of the most common symptoms of low testosterone include fatigue, mood swings, anxiety, depression and reduction in their muscle mass.
Some other symptoms include reduction in sex drive and erectile dysfunction, experts say.
Recently published study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine examined the testosterone replacement therapy role in diabetic men. Long-acting testosterone undecanoate was used by the researcher in the study as a type of testosterone.
First part of the study divided a total of 199 diabetic men experiencing low testosterone problem in two groups. One group received a placebo while the other group received testosterone replacement therapy (in parabolin version).
On the completion of 30 weeks, the group that was given testosterone had improvements in their sexual lives like better erection, orgasm and sex drive. They got more satisfaction while performing an intercourse and were highly satisfied with other sexual activities as well.
Also, 46% of the men who were provided testosterone felt improvement in their health. On the other hand, only 17% of men from other group felt improved health.
These 2 groups were also provided the option of taking forward their treatment for more 52 weeks. Only 166 men decided to continue the treatment. After the completion of time, 70% men reported feeling better health.
Some exceptions were also found in the study. Men who were suffering from depression did not experienced signification improvement at the end of the treatment. Also, men who were experiencing obesity also did not experience much improvement.
Researchers have focused significantly on the importance of low testosterone and depression among those men who are suffering from diabetes. It is possible to live a healthy life and lessen the symptoms of these diseases by taking a testosterone replacement therapy.
Diabetic men experiencing negative symptoms should consult their doctors for low testosterone.
