Vitamin D effects Testerosterone Levels in Men

Currently, there is great interest in vitamin D because poor vitamin D status is common and has been associated with an increased risk of various chronic diseases including cancer, diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, depression and cardiovascular diseases as well as all-cause mortality. This study of 2299 men from Clin Endocrinol (2010) shows that low vitamin D levels are associated with decreased sperm count and motility and histological abnormalities of the testis in mice. Low vitamin D levels are also associated with low testerosterone levels.

Men who are having issues with sperm count or moitilt issues should get their vitamin D levels checked. And older men with low testerosterone levels should get their vitamin D levels checked.
