Low Testosterone Clinic in Miami Sites New Weight Loss Study for Boosting Testosterone
Miami clinic highlights new study that says men middle-aged men with prediabetes can increase low testosterone levels by nearly 50% by losing weight
MIAMI, FL – American Longevity Center, the nation’s leading authority on symptoms and conditions associated with low testosterone, sites a new study by the Endocrine Society that says weight loss can reduce the prevalence of low testosterone levels in overweight, middle-aged men with prediabetes by almost 50 percent.
The results were presented June 25 at The Endocrine Society’s 94th Annual Meeting in Houston.
The new study involved nearly 900 men with prediabetes (also called impaired glucose tolerance) who had participated in the Diabetes Prevention Program. That now-completed U.S. study showed that people at high risk of Type 2 diabetes could delay or avoid developing the disease through weight loss. Because overweight men are more likely to have low testosterone levels, Hayes and her colleagues studied the effect of weight loss on men’s testosterone levels.
The men were randomly assigned to receive one of three treatments: 293 men to lifestyle modification, 305 to the diabetes drug metformin and 293 to inactive placebo pills. Lifestyle modifications consisted of exercising for 150 minutes a week and eating less fat and fewer calories.
With lifestyle modification, the prevalence of low testosterone levels decreased from about 20 percent to 11 percent after one year, a 46 percent decrease, the authors reported.
American Longevity Center physicians are encouraged by the new report. The Miami anti-aging clinic has been at the forefront of treating low testosterone in men of all ages and is an advocate of proactive medicine for all men and women. ALC physicians note that some men may require additional treatment for their low testosterone, but agree that weight loss and healthy living should become an integral part of any treatment program.
“When our doctors treat a patient for low testosterone, we always consider the other facets of their health that can be contributing factors,” says John Graner, President of American Longevity Center. “All of our hormone replacement therapy programs involve proper nutrition, supplementation and a healthy diet as part of the treatment regimen. It is only when your body is at its optimum level of health that you can fully experience the benefits of any treatment regimen.”
