SART Fertility Experts     Fertility and Sterility On Air

Jul 1, 2021

On this episode, we will be discussing the topic of male infertility in men's health. Joining us are Dr. Akanksha Mehta, an associate professor and residency program director in the Department of Urology at Emory University School of Medicine, and Dr. Michael Eisenberg, director of Neuro Reproductive Medicine and Surgery and associate professor in the Department of Urology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Our focus will be on the intersection between male infertility and somatic health, with Dr. Eisenberg providing his expert opinion on the matter. We begin the discussion with Dr. Eisenberg's thoughts on the association between male infertility and chronic medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and sleep apnea. He highlights how health and fertility are linked and delves into the various hypotheses that explain this link. As we explore the topic further, we learn how men's overall health, testosterone levels, developmental or neural factors, and health factors all affect fertility. Dr. Eisenberg also highlights how infertile men are at a higher risk of chronic medical diseases, even at a young age, suggesting that there may be underlying diseases that need to be addressed. This podcast provides valuable insight into the intersection between male infertility and men's health, making it a must-listen for anyone interested in the subject.
