Although the FDA approved testosterone therapy for the treatment of diseases affecting the testes, pituitary and hypothalamus, it hasn't been approved for treating age-related decrease in testosterone levels. The U.S. National Institute on Aging is also expected to release the results of research on the security of testosterone. The study included nearly 800 elderly men with low testosterone and symptoms associated with this illness, including physical and sexual dysfunction. The research is expected to shed more light on the security of testosterone treatment since the men's heart health was carefully tracked.

Studies have shown that testosterone deficiency is associated with a number of significant health problems for example metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes, and bone fractures Guys who meet medical criteria for treatment should get therapy. The truth is, your testosterone levels have probably been slowly decreasing for some time, a downfall that usually starts around age 30.

However, clinical studies demonstrate that testosterone not only does not increase a woman's risk of breast cancer , it may play a vital role in warding off the disease. Glaser believes this will likely remain the status quo for some time, given the prohibitive cost of conducting the long-term safety studies needed to acquire fuller FDA acceptance.
