I think its opposite of what your thinking cpsmiths, there is alot that goes on with the human body before someone is officially diagnosed with UC. And it can go on for some time too (years). Like possible yeast overgrowth, bacteria overgrowth, which in turn can cause a vast amount of other problems ie hormonal inbalance. So to answer your question i dont think low testosterone causes UC. But i do think a unhealthy digestive tract over run by bacteria and possibly yeast can cause low testosterone and also lead up to UC. Before i was diagnosed i went all through that, never went on any hormone therapy but definitly felt down in the dumps and low libido. The only thing to this day that has helped me out is me doing my own research and starting a strong course of probiotics and a healthy diet.
