Not likely: Per the literature, there is currently no obvious link between low testosterone levels and restless legs syndrome (rls). Rls is linked to low peripheral ferritin and Dopamine levels. If you are experiencing symptoms of rls, it is recommended you consult a sleep medicine specialist to evaluate and treat it. Hope that answers your question!

However, having said that, a obesity in the setting of low testosterone can be improved by normalizing tesosterone levels and obese men tend to have lower testosterone levels because they convert more t to Estrogens in the excess body fat.

Pituitary or testes?: In general, persistent low testosterone (not transient from acute sickness) is due to dysfunction in pituitary ("master gland"), or testes glands. Checking pituitary hormones (prolactin, lh, fsh) can distinguish between the two categories, and can determine whether brain scanning is needed. Illness and narcotic drugs will alter pituitary function, while alcohol injures the testes to cause low t.
