Testosterone Deficiency

Testosterone deficiency is a condition treated by endocrinologists. Testosterone is the male sex hormone which is responsible for the development and maintenance of sexual organs, sexual function and maintenance of muscle and bone health. Testosterone declines with age which is a normal process but certain diseases can lead to a premature decline in testosterone levels.

Testosterone treatment can to: (1) improvements to sex drive (2) general well being (3) improved bone strength and (4) increased muscle development and reduction in body fat.

In the absence of a clear cause for testosterone deficiency, the use of testosterone therapy in men with 'low-normal' testosterone levels may not be consistently beneficial. This is an area of on-going research.
