All you have to do is take a quick drive around town to see that low testosterone clinics are all the rage. A little math will tell you why. Males make up around 50 percent of the population, and their testosterone declines, naturally, at a rate of 1 percent per year after age 30. If that decline merits treatment, it’s no wonder those clinics are everywhere. But, does it merit treatment? Is testosterone replacement safe? Is it even effective? We dig into those questions on this episode of 2 Docs Talk.
