The Influence Of The Hormone Testosterone With Thyroid Gland Disorders?
, I want to ask whether hormonal disturbances or fluctuations in the hormone testosterone too often can cause problems with the thyroid gland? thanks …
Hello, thank you for your question,
In fact, rather than saying fluctuations in testosterone affect the thyroid, it would be more correct to say abnormal thyroid levels affect testosterone.
Although this relationship is not well known, some existing studies show an interrelationship between the two. Patients with hypothyroidism tend to have decreased gonadal function (hypogonadism) and ultimately decreased testosterone production and vice versa. When thyroid levels are normalized, for example with drugs, testosterone production returns to normal over time.
If you have a thyroid disorder or low testosterone levels, you should visit a doctor, especially an internist for further consultation, if necessary, a referral to an endocrine consultant can be made.
That's all I can say, hopefully useful.
