What is it?

Testosterone is the principal male sex hormone. It plays a very important part of overall health and well-being and supports the building of strong muscles, bones and ligaments. Low levels of testosterone in men can affect every aspect of their life and performance. Fatigue, irritability, depression, aches and pains and many other symptoms may be the result of sub-optimal testosterone levels.  Depending on the age of the patient in question it could be a sign that they are experiencing Andropause. If low levels of testosterone are identified, this can be treated with Testosterone Replacement Therapy.

We evaluate each patient comprehensively, getting a clear understanding of symptoms as well as what the individual wants to achieve with Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
