Are "Low-T" therapies like AndroGel the elixir of youth or snake oil? It's a valid question according to Dr. Gregory Lowe, a urologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
Advertisements warning men that they may be suffering from "low T" seem to be everywhere. Low T is commercial code for reduced levels of the male hormone testosterone. However, a decrease in testosterone levels is normal for men, a natural part of aging. In fact, upward of 30 percent of men in the United States over 60 years old have low testosterone — that's nearly 6 million men.
Recent studies have shown that the vast majority of men on testosterone medications are taking the drug off-label. In short, most men don't even have the diseases that testosterone has been approved to treat. This is especially disturbing in light of the extreme risks of testosterone: strokes, heart attacks, blood clots, congestive heart failure and other cardiovascular problems.
