Recent Findings with Low Testosterone Level

The rapid increase in the rates of obesity in both the developing and developed countries has some serious consequences. Almost all the obese adults suffer from at least one obese-related disease such as high blood-pressure, joint disorder, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes or cancer. However, the recent research has found that besides these diseases, there is a strong connection between obesity and low testosterone.

It has been found that obesity is the main reason behind low testosterone levels also known as hypogonadism. Hypogonadism is found in nearly 75% of men considered as obese. This connection is found to be in men of all ages including the teenagers and the young men. It is a myth that low testosterone in older men is due to age.

A new finding with low testosterone:

New evidences suggest that hypogonadism can be treated with a new hormone called kisspeptin or named after chocolate. The hormone is made by the human body. It was found in the city of Hershey, Pennsylvania that is famous for chocolates and therefore the hormone is named after the Hershey’s chocolate kiss. During the study, the researchers gave kisspeptin to men with hypogonadism and type 2 diabetes over a 12 hour period using drip.

It was found that when kisspeptin was directed, the level of testosterone did not increase above its typical range.

Low testosterone can rise abnormally by using supplementary injections and gels.
