According to a recent study carried out by researchers on hospitalised patients due to COVID-19, it was found that the viral infection causes depletion of male testosterone levels. This can also be the reason that the global tally suggests more men deaths than women's deaths during the COVID-19 infection. The study which is now published in the journal Aging Male is of the view that this further increases the possibility of intensive care unit (ICU) admission.

During the initial stages, the lower levels of testosterone in COVID-19 patients were associated with a poor health condition. However, newer studies have revealed that the viral infection might be the cause of lowering the level of the male sex hormone.

Selahittin Cayan, the author of the study from the University of Mersin in Turkey had said in an official release that testosterone is associated with the immune system of the respiratory organs. Hence lower levels of this hormone might increase the risk of respiratory infections.

She added that lower levels of the male sex hormone are also associated with infection-related hospitalisation and all-cause mortality in males who are also ICU patients. Hence, testosterone treatment may also have some benefits beyond improving outcomes for COVID-19 said Cayan.
