Depression common among men with borderline testosterone levels

July 7, 2015

Depression and depressive symptoms were more common among men referred for borderline testosterone levels compared with the general population, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Sexual Health.

“In an era where more and more men are being tested for ‘Low T’ — or lower levels of testosterone — there is very little data about the men who have borderline low testosterone levels,” Michael S. Irwig, MD, associate professor of medicine and director of the Center for Andrology at the George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, said in a press release. “We felt it important to explore the mental health of this population.”
