Testosterone is a key hormone in the context of COVID-19 pandemic

We now know that the COVID-19 virus causes what the medical field calls a ā€œcytokine stormā€ in your body. An inflammatory cytokine, or pro-inflammatory cytokine, is a type of signaling molecule that is secreted from immune cells like helper T cells, macrophages, and certain other cell types that promote inflammation. Pro-inflammatory cytokines have a central role in the progression of COVID-19 infection. Reduction of cytokine activity and/or their receptors (anti-cytokine therapy), can be useful for treatment.

Several studies now show that hypogonadism (low testosterone) is associated with increased pro-inflammatory cytokines. In this context, measuring testosterone levels may be recommended at the time of an identified COVID-19 positive test. Furthermore, theĀ use of testosterone may be considered to reduce the associated pulmonary syndrome, thus preventing progression to severe COVID-19 disease where pro-inflammatory cytokines play a major role.
