Testosterone is an important male hormone primarily produced in the testes. During puberty, testosterone plays an important role in the physical development of boys into men. It also plays a key role in fat distribution, regulation of sex drive (libido), muscle building, and the production of sperm and red blood cells. As a man gets older, his testosterone levels start to decrease as well – it is a natural part of the aging process. However, there are other factors that can cause low testosterone as well including radiation, testicle injury, and pituitary gland disease. Low testosterone levels can lead to depression, weight gain, reduced muscle mass, and decreased libido.
When you have been diagnosed with low testosterone, you may be prescribed with testosterone replacement therapy. At Medica Pharmacy & Compounding, we specialize in compounding medications that can be used for testosterone treatment. Other treatment options include testosterone gels, patches, and oral medication.
