The primary male hormone, testosterone, has many vital functions. Some of its most important roles? Maintaining muscle mass and promoting muscle growth and bone strength.
As testosterone levels decline with age, so do muscle mass and bone strength. Think about it: Muscle helps you burn more calories than fat tissue. As you lose muscle, you may be at a higher risk of overeating and storing those extra calories as fat.
Some researchers even believe reduced muscle mass is why low testosterone (Low T) leads to weight gain in men.
Your Low T treatment may help you lose weight
Several studies examining the effects of medically-supervised treatment for Low T deficient men have yielded positive results.
In a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health, 82 obese men ate a reduced-calorie diet and received testosterone injections. These men had greater reductions in fat mass compared to another group of obese men on a low-calorie diet who received no Low T treatment. The study concluded that while the dieting men taking a placebo lost fat and lean mass, the weight loss for men on testosterone treatment was almost exclusively due to loss of body fat.
Makes sense, doesn’t it? By promoting muscle growth, Low T treatment can boost the number of calories you burn. And there’s more good news…It may also reduce fatigue and inspire you to get moving or push yourself during your workouts. All of which play major roles in weight loss!
