Increased Body Fat

You’re looking in the mirror and you see those extra pounds. Maintaining your waistline seems to be getting more and more difficult. You may eat healthy and work out but you aren’t able to shake that weight?

Low testosterone and increased body fat, as well as obesity, are all linked. Multiple studies indicate increased body fat can lower men’s testosterone levels, and low testosterone can cause an increase in body fat.

Testosterone impacts the metabolism in a powerful way; it regulates glucose, insulin, and fat regulation.

A 5-year study whose results were presented at the 19th European Congress in Lyon, France revealed that men who underwent testosterone replacement lost more than 30 pounds during the course of the study. These study participants also saw improvements in blood pressure, blood glucose, and low density cholesterol levels.
