Description:

Testosterone replacement therapy has become a multibillion dollar industry in the span of less than a decade. In part this is due to increased awareness and diagnosis of age-related androgen deficiency. But the effects of direct-to-consumer marketing in the US has also played a significant role in the uptick in testosterone replacement. Unfortunately, the blanket treatment of testosterone replacement in young hypogonadal males commits them to lifelong medication, impairs fertility and can significantly alter sexual and overall quality of life.

This lecture will review alternatives to testosterone replacement currently used to treat young men. 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the “saturation point” concept of T effects on the body
  • Delineate two ways of supporting testosterone that also maintain fertility
  • Provide a differential diagnosis of at least 5 conditions besides hypogonadism that result in low libido or erectile dysfunction
