Testosterone is Important for Both Men and Women

Testosterone levels normally decline with age, contributing to the various changes seen as men age. Low testosterone (Low T) is associated with many adverse health conditions, including educed libido, erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle tone, increased abdominal fat, low bone density, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and heart disease, among others.

Researchers in Finland have also linked Low T to the development of what is know as metabolic syndrome (a combination of medical disorders that, when occurring together, increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes). They followed their male research subjects for 11 years and found that men with lower levels of total testosterone had twice the risk of developing metabolic syndrome. Another investigation by the same research group found that in obese men with metabolic syndrome, weight loss increases total and free testosterone levels.

Testosterone may protect cardiovascular health through anti-inflammatory and blood fat-lowering effects British investigators have found. Furthermore, this study found a significant decrease in total cholesterol in the patients who received testosterone.

Importance of Testosterone in Women

Although women produce only small quantities of testosterone, evidence shows that this key hormone helps women maintain muscle strength, bone mass and sexual function. Testosterone levels decrease following menopause and restoring testosterone levels may help improve well-being and libido.

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine looked at the effect of testosterone on 75 women, aged 31-56, with low testosterone due to hysterectomy and removal of both ovaries. Investigators found a significant improvement in libido, mood, and general well-being in the women who received the larger doses of testosterone (300-mcg) .
