Testosterone in women with MS is significantly lower than a healthy subject. On the flip side of this too much testosterone in a female MS patient causes irreversible brain damage during a relapse. This is why it is thought that while men get MS less often they typically have a more progressive and debilitating form of it.
The sex hormone level results were different for the men with little change between controls and MS patients. Testosterone didn't affect the men's results. Instead, estradiol, which is the result of conversion from testosterone to estrogen, was important. Men with multiple sclerosis and the highest estradiol levels had a greater degree of brain tissue damage.
