Inverse correlation between measures of obesity and testosterone levels.
The larger the waist the lower your testosterone
Prevalence in men with type 2 diabetes is 40%
Insulin resistance, increase fat mass, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, increase risk, diabetes, of heart attack
Independent risk factor for ALL cause mortality
Symptoms of low testosterone
Obesity causes low testosterone because testosterone is converted to estradiol (an estrogen) by aromatase enzymes in fat cells. More estrogen causes feminization of men. 'Moobs'. Decreased fertility
Then reduced testosterone increases adipocyte (fat cells) (vicious cycle) and decreases lean mass (worsening body composition)
Testosterone also works on something called the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis. This hormone “highway” connects your brain to your reproductive organs. Obesity acts on this highway to reduce testosterone
What to Do
Testosterone replacement (or increasing your own)
