Male hypogonadism is the medical phrase used to describe men with severe testosterone deficiency. The degree of severity of the condition can vary from individual to individual, but there is universal similarity of symptoms in testosterone deficient males - these include fatigue, lethargy, mood changes, ill temper, sexual dysfunction, poor erectile function, loss of sexual interest, diminished muscle strength, osteoporosis and anaemia.

Male hypogonadism is most frequently due to primary testicular disease e.g. Klinefelter's syndrome, but may result from malfunctioning of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus in the brain.

Male hypogonadism is estimated to have a prevalence of 5 per 1000 men making it one of the commonest forms of hormonal deficiencies in men.

Physiological androgen replacement aims to restore circulating testosterone concentration to normal in men with hypogonadism. The use of testosterone in the management in ageing men without specific causes of hypogonadism, commonly referred to as ADAM (the Androgen Deficient Aging Male), is one of the most rapidly expanding area of medical practice.

Regardless of the underlying cause of the testosterone deficiency the treatment is universally testosterone supplementation.

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) aims to restore circulating testosterone concentration to normal in men with all degrees of hypogonadism.

TRT is highly effective in restoration of blood testosterone levels to the normal ranges and safely and effectively resolves all symptoms associated with testosterone deficiency.


The use of testosterone in the management in ageing men who exhibit symptoms associated with lowered testosterone levels, commonly referred to as the ADAM (Androgen Deficient Ageing Male) or late-onset hypogonadal male, is one of the most rapidly expanding areas of medical practice.

It is the ADAM male that is the largest underdiagnosed group of all testosterone deficient individuals. Symptoms are often non-specific, can be confounded by pre-existing medical conditions (obesity, chronic illness) and include lethargy, sleep disturbances, loss of libido, irritability, anxiety, reduced concentration and depressed mood.

The majority of the medical profession has blinkers on or is blinded through lack of understanding about diagnosing and using testosterone supplementation in women. Every hour of every day women present to their GP's complaining of lack of energy, unexplained fatigue and often little or no sexual desire. More often than not these women are sent away with a prescription for anti-depressants, sent for a blood test or told to take some vitamins, try yoga or exercise. In the majority of cases the blood tests look at thyroid levels, iron levels and possibly the hormones estrogen, progesterone, FSH and LH. What the majority of doctors fail to test for is the hormone testosterone - testosterone is pivotal in control of energy levels, mood and sexual function!!!! By testing for only two of the three sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone and testosterone) doctors are only getting two thirds of the main hormonal picture in women. Testosterone deficiency in women is a major under diagnosed medical condition that is gaining more traction within certain sections of the medical community as more and more scientific medical data is published, but the average medico has little or no experience of the benefits that the judicial use of testosterone supplementation can have in women with low serum testosterone. For decades testosterone has been considered exclusively as a male hormone and women have been considered estrogen only entities - this is unequivocally false and both men and women naturally produce all three hormones, albeit in differing proportions, but nevertheless they are vital to both sexes. Pharmaceutical companies have only produced testosterone products suitable for use in males which has perpetuated the myth that women don't need testosterone and a lack of suitable user friendly products for supplementing testosterone in women have made effective testosterone supplementation for women difficult. In the past couple of years this has all changed. Giving testosterone to women via a testosterone cream or a testosterone patch has revolutionised the lives of women with low libido and unexplained fatigue.
