Low T may be associated with chronic disease, even among men 40 years of age and younger, a new study finds. (1)
According to Mark Peterson, Ph.D., M.S., FACSM, lead author of the study and assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Michigan Medicine:
“Chronic disease is on the rise, and testosterone deficiency is associated with obesity-related chronic diseases.” (1)
Researchers studied multimorbidity, or when two or more of the chronic conditions were present, and found that low testosterone was associated with multimorbidity in all age groups.
Higher T Levels = Lower Chronic Disease
The new study also showed a dose-response relationship between testosterone and multimorbidity. Which, Peterson notes, “means that men should be concerned about declining total testosterone, even if it has not reached a level to warrant a clinical diagnosis (<300 ng/dL [10.4 nmol/L]).”
Because testosterone declines with age, lower T levels in men may be contributing to the decline in overall health. Increasing total testosterone may help reverse this trend and lower the number of cases of chronic disease. (1)
Look at the Mirror, Not the Scale
One of the many health benefits of testosterone is its ability to reduce fat and build muscle. Increasing testosterone promotes a healthier, leaner physique! However, it is important to note that muscle tissue weighs more than fat, and increasing muscle mass can increase the number on the scale, even as you’re losing fat.
Instead of checking a scale to measure weight-loss effects of Andro400, be mindful of your physical changes. Measure your waistline; notice the fit of your clothes and how it transforms over time. Look in the mirror and feel the changes within your body, rather than rely on the number on a scale.
Remember that Andro400 is not a diet pill, and it takes time – likely several months – for your increased testosterone to target and melt years of accumulated belly fat.
Even if your weight doesn’t decrease quickly, boosting your testosterone provides many other health benefits, such as improved bone density, blood flow, mood, immune system, and mental function.
