Mechanisms of testosterone deficiency-related endothelial dysfunction: invited commentary for the Hellenic Journal of Cardiology on: Tsikas et al. “Associations between asymmetric dimethylarginine, nitrite-dependent renal carbonic anhydrase activity and plasma testosterone levels in hypogonadal men”

Abstract:

Evidence from clinical studies suggests that patients with low testosterone levels are at increased cardiovascular disease risk. Even though the exact mechanisms remain poorly understood, a low plasma testosterone level is associated with a pro-atherogenic lipid profile, insulin resistance and increased levels of pro-inflammatory mediators and vascular dysfunction, which is typically observed in patients with hypogonadism. Furthermore, recent evidence suggests that testosterone deficiency has...
