The Science of Hormones. The Sign and Symptoms of Low Testosterone.

Can Low Testosterone Cause Male Weight Gain?

However, any pronounced change in energy level, interest in sex, hair growth, muscle weakening, or weight gain or loss should be discussed with a medical professional as soon as possible. In fact, it would be best to see a hormone specialist and have your hormone levels checked.

Why Does Low Testosterone Make Men Gain Weight?

Along with ensuring that sexual function is maintained, testosterone plays a critical role in the regulation of metabolism, the process by which the body stores and burns energy. Men who have lower testosterone typically hold on to more body fat, while weight loss is more common in those who have high testosterone levels.

While lower testosterone can lead to weight gain, so too can obesity lead to decreased testosterone levels. The results can be quite frustrating, which is why seeking out a licensed medical doctor like Dr. Mikhail Berman is so crucial.

Rapid and extreme male weight gain, especially in those who are aging, is often a telltale sign of lower testosterone levels. A hormone replacement specialist like Dr. Berman has seen this many times and has the skills necessary to both provide suggestions in regard to diet and exercise as well as offer low testosterone treatments and helpful therapies.

In men, body fat contains an enzyme that is responsible for the conversion of testosterone into estrogen. When this occurs, the body is triggered to decrease its testosterone production, leading to increased storage of body fat. The result is even lower testosterone and more fat, particularly around the belly area.

Along with facilitating increased male weight gain, low testosterone also negatively impacts your body’s emotional responses, one of which being motivation. When this is suppressed, one has less of a desire to work out and be physically active. This can, of course, lead to additional male weight gain and even depression.

To make matters worse, low testosterone also impedes the body’s ability to generate new cells in the muscle tissue, leading to weakening. Fortunately, many of these issues can be corrected with the implementation of dietary changes and testosterone replacement therapy.

The Problem with Dieting and Low Testosterone

Losing weight can be a difficult task when testosterone levels are low. Whether due to obesity or increased age, reduced testosterone levels increase the body’s cravings for sugar and additional calories. To complicate things, dieting isn’t really the best choice either. For one thing, dieting tends to lower testosterone, making it hard to lose the weight while keeping your testosterone high. Fortunately, there are strategies to avoid this mishap.

Dr. Berman encourages patients to avoid those diets that are low in fat and high in fiber. Healthy fats are essential to a well-rounded diet and have been known to increase testosterone. When energy is expended, testosterone levels can drop as well. For this reason, cardio is not your best bet. Instead, weight resistance training should be incorporated into any exercise program to increase lean muscle mass and therefore, testosterone. According to Dr. Berman, gradual dieting is the key.
