According to diabetes news, men with type 2 diabetes face a much greater risk of developing Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome (TDS) than men without the condition.
The symptoms of TDS include lower libido, lower energy levels, loss of memory power or concentration, negative moods, anxiety and stress. Furthermore, TDS is associated with a 42 per cent greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes .
TDS is relatively common, affecting one in ten men over the age of thirty. According to the Barnsley hospital researchers who conducted the study, TDS is directly linked with insulin resistance.
Geoff Hackett reportedly commented: “Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome is more common than GPs realise, particularly amongst men with Type 2 diabetes . Erectile dysfunction has been shown to be a robust predictor of CHD risk in men with Type 2 diabetes.”
