What is testosterone? 

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and anabolic steroid. In male humans, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as testes and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair.

 

How do you know if your testosterone is low? 

If a male has a low level of testosterone, the symptoms can include erectile dysfunction, and reduced bone mass and sex drive. The hormone has many important functions, including: the development of the bones and muscles. the deepening of the voice, hair growth, and other factors related to appearance.

 

I have erectile dysfunction and loss of sex drive does that mean I have low testosterone? 

Not necessarily…
There are several other factors that could can cause erectile dysfunction and low sex drive, these include:

  • smoking
  • thyroid-related issues
  • high cholesterol
  • stress or anxiety
  • alcohol consumption
  • diabetes
  • high blood pressure

 

What are the health risks of low testosterone?
Low testosterone levels in men can lead to range of health issue including:
 

  • increased body fat
  • decreased strength/mass of muscles
  • fragile bones
  • decreased body hair
  • swelling/tenderness in the breast tissue
  • hot flashes
  • increased fatigue
  • effects on cholesterol metabolism


Testosterone and COVID-19

 

Why do women seem to be less susceptible to fatality in Covid-19 than men?

Estrogen (the main female hormone) can improve the immune system and increase immune inflammation whereas testosterone (the male sex hormone) can reduce or dampen the response. As a result, women often have less severe infections than men and have significantly stronger immune responses to vaccinations.

Don’t higher levels of testosterone damp down the male immune response?

This was conventional thinking until research from German intensive care units battling COVID-19 have discovered that men with low testosterone levels that contract COVID-19 are at far greater risk of dying from the virus. 

 

Professor Gülsah Gabriel from the Leibniz Institute for Experimental Virology in Hamburg, who has led the study, found that not only are men twice as likely to die from the coronavirus but also that the male sex hormone testosterone plays a key role. 

 

The hormone is known to help regulate the body's immune response but when a man has low levels of testosterone, the immune system is not kept in check and can collapse into what is known as Cytokine storm.  It’s this Cytokine storm, where the body attacks itself, which is responsible for the death of so many intensive care patients.

 

If you are over 50 it’s probably a good idea to get your testosterone levels checked and if low, to raise your levels under doctor supervision to improve overall health and also reduce the risk fatality, should you become hospitalized due to Covid-19.

 

HE Clinic offers free consultations, blood tests, monitoring and testosterone treatment approved by the Thai FDA, including 3 month Nebido Testosterone shots.  The clinic also has a 30% discount on this treatment till the end of June.
