A connection between Subclinical Hypothyroidism and Testosterone Deficiency


It's just a very short article, but I thought it might be of interest for any celiac men with hypothyroidism who may be experiencing symptoms that are not resolving as they should on medication. Especially as some of the symptoms of testosterone deficiency are very similar to that of celiac disease, hypothyroidism, and simply getting older.

Testosterone deficiency can cause symptoms like:

* Decrease in muscle mass, with an increase in body fat.

* Changes in cholesterol levels.

* Decrease in hemoglobin and possibly mild anemia.

* Fragile bones (osteoporosis).

* Decrease in body hair.

* Changes in cholesterol levels and lipid levels.

It can also cause issues with depression and concentration. (from http://www.medicinenet.com/testosterone_therapy_to_treat_ed/page2.htm )
