Studies show that obese men have a low testosterone level. Diabetic men have even a lower testosterone level and it is pretty common for an obese man to suffer from diabetes too. The bad part about having a low testosterone level and being obese is that you get man boobs. No man wants man boobs.

In a Hypogonadism in Males study conducted at the University of Buffalo researchers were able to notice that 40% of all obese men have a low testosterone level. In the case of diabetic obese men the percentage rose up to 50%.

According to the results there is an inversely proportional link between a man’s BMI and his testosterone level. The higher a man’s BMI is the lower its testosterone level is going to be.

Dr Sandeep Dhindsa said "The effect of diabetes on lowering testosterone levels was similar to that of a weight gain of approximately 20 pounds." So a man that is overweight and diabetic should start losing weight as soon as possible.

The testosterone level influences a man’s health in many diverse ways. From its sex drive to getting man boos, testosterone is at the heart of a man’s health. Some might say that testosterone is what makes men men. If are a man and you want to increase your testosterone level lose weight.
