Low testosterone may predict rheumatoid arthritis in men

(April 3, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Sweden - According to a report published in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, low testosterone levels in men may predict rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers studied over 33,000 men and women who were born between 1921 and 1949. Participants were followed for 30 years from 1974 to 2004. Researchers reviewed blood samples that were available for nearly 300 of the men, 100 of whom developed rheumatoid arthritis over the study period. After accounting for risk factors, researchers found that men with low testosterone levels were much more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis.
