Recent studies support that hypogonadal men with Type 2 diabetes can benefit from testosterone. Improving glycemic control, insulin resistance, body fat, and sexual function in men. Testosterone replacement reverses insulin resistance in men suffering from Hypogonadism.
Male hypogonadism means the testicles don’t produce enough of the male sex hormone testosterone
- Primary Hypogonadism- also known as primary testicular failure, starts from a problem in the testicles.
- Secondary Hypogonadism- indicates a problem in the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland — parts of the brain that signal the testicles to produce the male hormone; testosterone. The hypothalamus produces gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which signals the pituitary gland to make follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. Luteinizing hormone then signals the testes to produce testosterone.
