The article reports that a study conducted by the Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, found that infertile men could be at risk for osteopenia. The study shows that men with disrupted hormonal axes or hypogonadism need to work up for the presence of osteopenia. The study involving 46 patients ranged in age from 18 to 60 years, found a 5 percent incidence of the disease among infertile men at their 30s and 40s, although rising to 21 percent in severely oligospermic men.
