Selon une étude sur 43 hommes (24-29 ans) avec une hypogonadisme hypogonadotropique, le niveau bas de testosterone peut être considéré come un marquer de risque athérosclérotique. Les traitement hormonal substitutif (traitement en accord avec Algorithm of Testosterone Therapy in Adult Men with Androgen Deficiency Syndromes (2010; Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, 95, 2536) a par contre un effet protecteur après 6 mois de traitement.
