In brief: Higher mortality

Low testosterone has been associated with higher all-cause (gold standard of all studies), cardiovascular & cancer mortality (death rate) in 7 different populations across the globe.
Low t has also been associated w/low bone mass & fracture, frailty & sarcopenia (loss of muscle), obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, depression, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction & more. http://bit.ly/h6bu1a.
