Low Testosterone: Effective Treatment Options
Just as it is normal for estrogen levels to drop in women, a similar drop in testosterone levels is also common in males. Instead of "male menopause," the phenomenon has been dubbed "Andropause."

Contrary to the commercials you see, its significance goes well beyond erectile dysfunction. Low testosterone is also associated with depression, elevated risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and more.
