Weight Loss Helps Increase Testosterone Levels In Male Study Group

Middle-aged overweight men worried about low testosterone levels have an alternative to hormone therapy: weight loss.

A new study involving about 900 men with prediabetes showed that weight loss through lifestyle changes reduced the prevalence of low testosterone levels significantly.

“Losing weight not only reduces the risk of prediabetic men progressing to diabetes but also appears to increase their body’s production of testosterone,” said a co-author of the study, Dr. Frances Hayes, a professor at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin.
