I did a forum search and didn't see this discussed anywhere previously.
This 2014 study claims that AS patients with low free testosterone (less than .45 ng/dL) are more likely to have their disease progress and require treatment.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/bju.12682/full
Does anyone know if there have been further studies that either validate or refute this claim?
