Problems May Not be Due to Low Testosterone

Drugmakers such as Solvay Pharmaceuticals would have you believe that getting a testosterone prescription is the key to overcoming sexual problems. But a new study shows that men's levels of the hormone can vary quite a bit without causing any problems at all.

Researchers used data from an earlier study of more than 8,000 middle-aged and older men. One in five had testosterone levels below 300 nanograms per deciliter of blood, and about two in five had at least "a small problem" related to their sex life.

However, according to Reuters:

“Of the measures taken -- age, urinary symptoms, body mass index (BMI) and diabetes -- testosterone showed the weakest link to the men's sexual function.”
