Low Testosterone Leads to Premature Death

Low Testosterone Leads to Premature Death
More than 30 percent of men over 60 have low testosterone levels, which can lead to muscle and bone loss, obesity, low energy levels, depression, and poor sexual performance. A British study of nearly 1,000 men with coronary artery disease showed that low testosterone levels increase the risk of heart-related death by 127 percent. The effects of hormone replacement therapy on longevity in heart patients are unknown. Other factors affecting premature heart-related deaths included left ventricular dysfunction (increased by 285 percent), aspirin therapy (decreased by 37 percent), and beta-blocker therapy (decreased by 55 percent).
