Atherosclerosis risk increased among men with diabetes, low testosterone

October 17, 2014

A greater risk for developing atherosclerosis is found among middle-aged men with low testosterone and type 2 diabetes, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“Our study indicates a strong association between low testosterone concentration and the severity of atherosclerotic plaques as well as other key atherosclerotic markers in middle-aged men with type 2 diabetes,” Javier Mauricio Farias, MD, of the Hospital Universitario Sanatorio Guemes in Buenos Aires, said in a press release. “The results of our study advance our understanding of the interplay between low testosterone and cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes.”
