Abstract

Testosterone deficiency occurs commonly in men as they grow older. This deficiency often is associated with a decline in sexual activity and a loss of muscle mass. Testosterone replacement can reverse many of these effects. At present, no ideal form of testosterone replacement is available. Like the phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, testosterone replacement in older men is a quality of life issue.
