New data show low testosterone more likely in men with diabetes

Marietta, Ga. (June 11, 2005) Men with diabetes age 45 and older may be more than twice as likely as non-diabetic men to have low testosterone levels, according to new data announced at the American Diabetes Association Annual Meeting and Scientific Session in San Diego. Results of this multi-center study, which screened more than 2,000 men, also found sexual dysfunction to be the most common symptom experienced by men with diabetes and low testosterone (known also as hypogonadism or low T). These data are a subset analysis of the Hypogonadism in Males (HIM) study.

It is estimated that low T affects up to 13 million American men age 45 and older, yet fewer than 10 percent are currently receiving treatment. Because symptoms of low T are subtle and often overlap with other common medical conditions, low T is frequently undiagnosed. The signs and symptoms of low T may include diminished interest in sex, erectile dysfunction (ED), increased fat mass, reduced muscle mass and strength, decreased bone mineral density, depressed mood and fatigue. Men with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and asthma/COPD, are more likely to have low T compared to other men.

"In our study, more than half of the men with diabetes also had low testosterone levels suggesting a higher prevalence of low T among diabetic men than previously reported," said Dr. Sherwyn L. Schwartz, co-investigator and director of the Diabetes & Glandular Disease Clinic in San Antonio. "Men with diabetes who have signs or symptoms of low testosterone should have their testosterone levels checked with a simple blood test. If you're diagnosed with low T, the good news is that the condition very often is treatable."

Several studies have reported that a higher proportion of men with diabetes may have significantly lower testosterone levels than men without diabetes. This is the first cross-sectional study of this size to assess the prevalen
