Low serum testosterone and increased diastolic ocular perfusion pressure: a risk for retinal microvasculature.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Low levels of testosterone in men and changes in retinal microvascular calibre are both associated with hypertension and cardiovascular disease risk. Sex hormones are also associated with blood flow in microvascular beds which might be a key intermediate mechanism in the development of hypertension. Whether a direct association between endogenous… (More)
