It is commonly seen that patients suffering from RA have low testosterone
levels while Methotrexate
may cause low testosterone levels in men with sleep deprivation
(due to increase in IL-1β which reduces the production of Leydig cell
production of testosterone as found in research studies).
cal conditions that cause low testosterone levels are thyroid issues, liver, kidney or pituitary problems, obesity or weight loss
, smoking, alcohol, drug abuse or addictions if any.
Get clinically assessed get treated at the earliest. To increase testosterone levels naturally do exercises & weight lifting, take proteins, vitamin D & mineral supplements, nuts, dry fruits, minimize stress & take quality sleep.
