The study, conducted on 745 patients by a team of researchers from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, showed most commonly reported symptom by these patients was lack of energy followed by poor erection and loss of libido (decrease in the sexual drive), as per a statement.

Dr. Sudhir Chadha, the author of the study, said there is a significant correlation between testosterone deficiency syndrome, Vitamin D deficiency, diabetes, and coronary heart disease.

"TDS is a real phenomenon with a prevalence of 28.99 percent in our study population which means that every third person above the age of 40 years is suffering from testosterone deficiency," the statement quoted him as saying.
