When comparing testosterone levels of men with erectile dysfunction (ED) and men with Peyronie's disease (PD), a group of American researchers found no significant differences.
Their study, published online last month in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, also found no correlation between the severity of Peyronie's disease and testosterone levels.
One hundred eighty-five men participated in the study. Ninety-eight had ED and 87 had Peyronie's disease. None of the men had the two conditions simultaneously.
In both groups, men had similar testosterone levels. In the PD group, there was no apparent link between testosterone level and disease severity.
“The comparable prevalence of low T in men with PD or ED suggests the high rate of low T in PD men may be related to a common process among men with abnormal erectile physiology and not specifically causative in plaque formation,” the authors wrote.
