New research finds that men who are overweight and have low testosterone levels may increase the level of hormone by losing weight. A recent study involving close to 900 middle aged Irish men who were overweight and judged to be pre-diabetic were split into three groups. One group ate a low fat low calorie diet along with exercise; one group took the diabetes drug Metformin and the third group was given a placebo.
The group who led the healthy life-style had the rate of low testosterone drop from 20 percent low to an eleven percent low. The testosterone levels showed no change at all in the two remaining groups.
“Doctors should first encourage overweight men with low testosterone levels to try to lose weight through diet and exercise before resorting to testosterone therapy to raise their hormone levels,” study co-author Dr. Frances Hayes, a professor at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin, said in a society news release.

A U.S. study has shown that smokers—whether male or female—do not make better lovers. In fact, smokers are more likely to be less amorous in bed than their non-smoking counterparts. In the study, men who had successfully stopped smoking improved their sexual healthy more than males who relapsed and began smoking again. Many healthcare professionals say that relapse is common, however, among smokers, and should keep trying to stop smoking for health benefits.
Even younger men who smoke can have negative sexual effects, such as trouble performing and/or maintaining an erection, than men (even older men who have never smoked) who do not light up a cigarette. According to the study, the 20 men who quit smoking during the 8-week long trial saw a greater increase in penis growth compared to those who did not quit smoking. Healthcare professionals have agreed that because of vein and artery restriction that smoking cause, sexual dysfunction is common with smokers.
