First off, I do not recommend testosterone therapy. I have not tried this myself, nor have I ever advocated this for anyone.
I do recommend testosterone. 😊
But only in the natural way. Which most men can achieve by making healthy lifestyle changes.
Today I want to talk about what happened to men who both had low testosterone and suffered from diabetes, that were given testosterone artificially.
Because the findings were mighty interesting. This sheds light on how important testosterone is for us men.
In this study, 356 men were treated and analyzed over 11 years. All men had diabetes and low testosterone. Half of the men received testosterone every 12 weeks. The other half did not receive testosterone.
The study was published in Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism.
At least twice yearly, researchers measured fasting glucose, hemoglobin, insulin, blood pressure, lipid profile and total testosterone.
What did the researchers find?
They found that those men (who had low testosterone and diabetes) that were given testosterone, experienced significant and sustained reductions in fasting glucose, hemoglobin and fasting insulin during the treatment period. 👍
34.3% of the men who received testosterone also experienced diabetes remission! These men could discontinue all diabetes medications. 😊
46.6% of these men also achieved normal glucose regulation. 😊
No men in the group that did not receive testosterone experienced diabetes remission.
The researchers also observed fewer deaths, myocardial infarctions, strokes and diabetes complications in the testosterone group. 😊
Why did this happen? Why did these people see such good results from testosterone?
We don’t know yet. What we do know is that testosterone is an incredibly important hormone in our bodies. Not just for avoiding erectile dysfunction and for your libido, but for overall health as well.
By the way, it was theorized that testosterone makes men more sensitive to insulin. But the effects of testosterone are likely more profound than this.
So what is the takeaway?
For us men, maintaining a healthy testosterone level is incredibly important. And I advocate doing this the natural way. This can be achieved by making smart lifestyle choices.
