Abstract

Objective. To test the relationship between gonadal status and objective measures and determinants of physical performance in older men and their determinants. Methods. The study included 455 ≥ 65 year older men of InCHIANTI study, Italy, with complete data on testosterone levels, hand grip strength, cross-sectional muscle area (CSMA), short physical performance battery (SPPB). Linear models were used to test the relationship between gonadal status and determinants of physical performance. Results. Three different groups of older men were created: (1) severely hypogonadal (N = 23), total testosterone levels ≤230ng /dl; (2) moderately hypogonadal (N = 88), total testosterone >230 and
