What are Low Testosterone Treatments?

There is a natural decline in testosterone production as men age. Testosterone therapy, also called low T treatment, is prescribed to men experiencing lower testosterone production. Having low testosterone levels can result in a lower sex drive, weaker bone density and diminishing muscle mass. Testosterone treatments can combat these issues.

This type of therapy is often administered as a gel, patch or injection and may include the following products:

  • AndroGel
  • Androderm
  • Axiron
  • Bio-T-Gel
  • Delatestryl
  • Dep-Testosterone
  • Fortesta
  • Striant
  • Testim
  • Testopel
