A new study revealed that the Coronavirus may deplete levels Testosterone In males, the results revealed that the average testosterone hormone in men who died from coronavirus infection was significantly lower than those who recovered for those who had no symptoms and 65.2% reported a loss of sexual desire.
According to a report by the journal Neuroscience for the first time, data from a study conducted on hospitalized patients with the Corona virus indicate that the disease may worsen testosterone levels in men.
Experts from the University of Mersin in Turkey found a decrease in the level of testosterone in men and their likelihood of being in the intensive care unit (ICU) increases significantly.
Study author Selahittin Çayan, professor of urology, said that while it has already been reported that low testosterone levels could be a cause of poor prognosis after a positive Corona test, this is the first study to show that COVID-19 itself depletes the hormone testosterone.
This development may help explain why so many studies find that the prognosis for males is worse than those of females with COVID-19, thus discovering the potential improvement in clinical outcomes with testosterone-based treatments.
Testosterone is associated with the immune system of the respiratory organs, and low testosterone levels may increase the risk of developing a respiratory infection, and low testosterone is also associated with hospitalization associated with infection and all-cause mortality in male patients in ICU patients, so it may be for testosterone therapy The benefits also go beyond improving the results of the Coronavirus.
