    • Waist Circumference: The Best Metric for Predicting Sexual Symptoms for Hypogonadal Men

      It's been well established that waist circumference is a useful, reliable predictor for cardiovascular risk. However, until earlier this year it was not certain what its value was in regard to sexual health/quality of life status in hypogonadal men.


      • Researchers enrolled 261 patients, all of whom were being treated with testosterone undecanoate.
      • Three recorded measurements, body weight, body mass index, and waist circumference were taken and were then correlated with results from the International Index of Erectile Function Score, the Aging Male Symptom Index, and the International Prostate Symptom Score to evaluate the sexually influenced, quality of life.


      They discovered that among all three measurements, A study "waist circumference is the best predictor of health-related/quality of life factors for hypogonadal men." Of particular note, BMI, long regarded as a reliable predictor of sexual health, had no proportionality to measurements of sexual function for these hypogonadal men.

        So what's a good target for men? I assume it would be based height. Couldn't really access most of the study.

        With paywalls, and so forth, the text is hard to access in full.

        It it is not a prescriptive study, however. It was clear that the larger the circumference, the greater higher the risk of sexually-related symptoms.

        It goes by waist circumference and waist-hip ratio, not height.

        Dr. Greger explains in this video that your waist circumference should be less than or equal to half your height.

        So basically BMI is close to worthless, as everyone knows. How well your clothes fit or a mirror would be better? I may have misinterpreted, but t sounds like a study to prove what every man involved in fitness has known for decades at least.
