Men With Hep C May Experience Low Testosterone
« on: April 19, 2019, 11:19:57 am »
Men living with hepatitis C virus (HCV) commonly experience low levels of free testosterone and do not see a significant improvement after curing the virus, Healio reports.

Previous research has found that hep C is associated with low total testosterone (TT), low free testosterone (FT) and higher sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG).

Publishing their findings in Clinical Infectious Diseases, researchers enrolled 327 men with hep C in a prospective longitudinal cohort study, including 150 men who were coinfected with HIV. They also studied 85 men for whom they had results of testosterone level tests taken before hep C treatment as well as after the men were cured of the virus.
