GONZALEZ JIMENEZ, Oscar Marcelo et al. Testosterone levels in male patients with Type 2 Diabetes. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2016, vol.3, n.1, pp.60-64. ISSN 2312-3893.

Decreased testosterone levels are associated with sterility and sexual impotence. The objective of this study was to study the relation between type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and levels of free testosterone and also whether this relation is correlated to HbA1c and body mass index (BMI). The free testosterone serum concentrations of 10 men with a medium BMI of 27.4 kg/m2, mean age of 46.4 years from urban zones that attended the Third Chair of Medical Clinic and the National Program of Diabetes were analyzed. The mean concentrations of free testosterone were lower than the range considered normal: 10.29 mg/dL vs 13-35 mg/dL. The mean value of HbA1c was 6.43%. A correlation between BMI and free testosterone was not found. It is concluded that these diabetic patients have reduced free testosterone levels and these are not correlated to either HbA1c or BMI.
