Is there a link between panic disorder and low testosterone in men?

+1 vote
Hello Dr.Carandang. Have you come across a link between panic disorder and low testosterone in men in your research? Since both the hypothalamus and pituitary gland are involved in the activation of flight or fight response, could that have a possibility of suppressing testosterone levels?

The main steroid in panic disorder is cortisol. I have never seen a link to testosterone, and if you do, it may just be a chance correlation.
