It's almost impossible to turn on the TV or open a newspaper (or website) without hearing about testosterone deficiency in men. We're barraged with information that ranges from scientifically correct concerns about a very real medical condition, to completely unsubstantiated claims about "miracle" supplements that promise to do everything from improving a man's mood and sex drive to giving him a body that would rival that of his favorite action hero. On the other hand, clinicians (and, in some cases, the FDA) are concerned about overuse of testosterone treatments, the effects of testosterone supplements on men and boys who don't have a testosterone problem, and the overall value and safety of these treatments.
