|PHD Thesis||The effect of insulin, leptin and inflammatory cytokines on reproductive health and hypogonadism in males diagnosed with the metabolic syndrome|
Obesity and metabolic syndrome associated with systemic inflammation and the impact on the male reproductive system (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2019)Obesity and metabolic syndrome (MetS) are global epidemics, driven by an obe‐sogenic environment. This is mediated by complex underlying pathophysiology, in which chronic inflammation is an important aetiological and ...
(Wiley, 2014)The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a constellation of various risk factors. This study aimed to investigate the effect of MetS on testosterone and progesterone, and semen parameters, in a case-controlled pilot study. Male ...
Obesity is associated with increased seminal insulin and leptin alongside reduced fertility parameters in a controlled male cohort (BioMed Central, 2014)Obesity appears to be associated with male reproductive dysfunction and infertility, although this has been inconsistent and inconclusive. Insulin and leptin are known mediators and modulators of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes ...
