Low Testosterone and Peyronie’s Disease

Mar 18, 2015

The researchers discovered little difference in the testosterone levels for the two groups. The average level for the men with Peyronie’s disease was 328 ng/dL. For those with ED, the average was 332 ng/dL.

Second, the researchers wanted to know whether testosterone levels affected the severity of Peyronie’s disease.

They measured the degree of curve and the size of plaques for each man with Peyronie’s disease. Then, they considered these results based on whether the men had low or normal testosterone levels.

But there were no significant differences. Even after accounting for high blood pressure, diabetes, drinking and smoking habits, and hyperlipidemia, the men’s curvature and plaque size measurements were similar.

“The exact role of [testosterone] in [Peyronie’s disease] is unclear and represents an important unanswered question,” the authors noted.
