Menís Health - Customized Hormone Replacement Therapy

In most men, serum testosterone concentrations decline steadily with age. Studies report that the total serum testosterone concentration of men at age 75 years is about two thirds of the levels at age 25 years. Approximately 50% of men older than 80 years and about 20% of men older than 60 years have low serum testosterone concentrations. In older men, an optimal plasma testosterone level is associated with reduced risk of death from all causes. When hormones are replaced or restored back to physiologic levels considered normal for younger males, men may experience a dramatic reversal of many signs and symptoms. Proper monitoring of laboratory values and clinical response are essential for optimal testosterone replacement therapy.
