Prediabetic Men & Testosterone Levels

This study was conducted to determine the effects of weight loss on testosterone levels and development of diabetes in pre-diabetic men. First, the study concluded that most pre-diabetic, overweight men had low testosterone levels. By implementing an exercise and diet program for weight loss, pre-diabetic men may be able to increase their testosterone levels by over 50% and delay or eliminate the onset of full-fledged type-2 diabetes.

This study is yet another indication that the elimination of excess weight can have a profound effect on the body’s natural processes and hormones.
