Another Benefit of Supporting Testosterone Levels In Women
Incontinence Tied to Low Testosterone in Women
BOSTON — A link between low levels of testosterone in women and urinary incontinence raises the possibility that testosterone replacement therapy might help, results from a new study suggest.
“Testosterone may prevent pelvic floor atrophy, thereby reducing the risk of urinary incontinence,” said investigator Michelle Kim, MD, PhD, from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
On univariate analysis, a low level of serum testosterone was significantly associated with stress, urgency, and mixed incontinence (P < .001 for all).
