Can Testosterone Thereapy Cure Erectile Dysfunction [Science: Yes]

By Johnathan P Cumberwell

Testosterone, the primary male sex hormone, is essential for a number of functions in your body. It is also critical to have enough of this hormone in order to avoid erectile dysfunction and to have a strong sex drive.

The reason for this is that testosterone governs and supports everything sexual going on in your body. Therefore, if you produce inadequate amounts, your sexual functions will normally run out of steam.

For men with low testosterone production, can testosterone replacement therapy work?

A research study just came out to shed some light on this.

This research paper analyzed the effects of testosterone replacement therapy in men with both low testosterone and diabetes.

The study followed 361 men over 12 years.

So what exactly did this research study discover?

  • In year 12, the International Index of Erectile Function-Erectile Function (IIEF-EF) score increased by 12.1 points for the treatment group
  • In year 12, the same score declined by 14.2 point for the control group
  • Over the observation period, 15 patients (8.2%) in the treatment group died compared with 61 patients (34.3%) in the control group

These are pretty compelling results!

According to this research, for men who have low testosterone production and who also suffer from diabetes, it appears that testosterone replacement therapy has significant benefits.

What are my takeaways from this research?

Firstly, this shows the importance of testosterone. Not only is it key for functioning sexually, but also for staying alive.

To me, the impact this had on the mortality rate is very interesting.

That said, I would not recommend testosterone therapy for anyone, other than in very special cases. 

Why?

Becuase this injected testosterone will not fix the underlying low testosterone production. It is in reality a bandaid.

Instead, if I had low testosterone production and if I were struggling with diabetes, I would first try to solve these problems the natural way.

This would include a number of healthy lifestyle changes such as improving my diet, exercise more, stressing less, etc.

After I had implemented these lifestyle changes, I would most likely see an improvement in both my testosterone production and my diabetes condition. There is a good chance they would both normalize.

And only in the event that I continued to struggle with these conditions after implementing and exhausting a natural solution, would I consider testosterone replacement therapy.
