Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone is the master male hormone because it controls and directs the rate of a man’s sexual development. Testosterone affects every cell in the body and plays an essential role in determining a man’s overall physical and mental health.
Normal levels of testosterone influence the production of sperm, promote sexual function and promote sex drive. In the male body, testosterone is the most important sex hormone.
We know that some men’s bodies do not produce enough testosterone. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates that 4 to 5 million american men may suffer from low testosterone, but only 5 percent are currently treated. Studies show that men lose testosterone at a rate of 1% – 2% a year after age 30.
