Abstract

The decline in serum testosterone level occur gradually throughout men's mature life and it may present as a constellation of signs and symptoms of hypogonadism known as "andropause". When diagnosed, the treatment should be introduced. The benefits of testosterone supplementation in this age group have yet to be equivocally established. Although testosterone therapy can induce adverse effects, these can be largely minimised by proper monitoring. This review summarises the present state of knowledge on the treatment of andropause.
