  3. When guys are in in end stage renal disease one of the effects is a loss of body mass and thus muscle. Basically a wasting type syndrome. Some treatments in the past have been amino acid infusions ( https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamasurgery/article-abstract/569039 ) Now it has been observed that many guys with CKD also have low T and if the low T is treated it aids in preventing the muscle wasting in end stage renal failure. This is good news because one of the most important treatments of CKD is a low or moderate protein diet which has a negative effect on muscle.

Testosterone Tie to Cardiovascular Disease Loosened Neil Osterweil March 27, 2017 LONDON — Testosterone replacement therapy does not appear to increase the risk for cardiovascular disease or thromboembolic events in middle-aged men, but it does increase the risk for obstructive sleep apnea, results from a large cohort study suggest. In fact, the risk for a cardiovascular event was lower in men taking supplemental testosterone than in those who were not, said lead investigator Julian Hanske, MD, from Ruhr University Bochum in Herne, German
