Low testosterone levels are associated with increased mortality in men

The relation between endogenous testosterone concentrations and health in men is controversial. The authors examined the prospective relationship between endogenous testosterone concentrations and mortality due to all causes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer in 11,606 men aged 40 to 79 years. They found that endogenous testosterone concentrations are inversely related to mortality due to cardiovascular disease and all causes. Low testosterone may be a predictive marker for those at high risk of cardiovascular disease.
