There is increasing evidence that the common condition of hypogonadism in older men when associated with symptoms responds well to testosterone replacement. Over the last few years there has been a marked increase in the awareness and treatment of the andropause [137]. Long-term side effects of testosterone are uncertain with only eight people over 50 years having been studied for 10 years [138]. Testosterone needs to be considered a quality-of-life drug, similar to sildenafil, and at present it should be used only if it produces symptomatic improvement. There is a need for a men's health study to determine the long-term efficacy and safety of testosterone replacement in older persons.
