Male Hypogonadism - Dubai Urology Clinic

In a significant proportion of aging men, a decrease in testosterone serum levels may result in clinically relevant hypogonadism. Aging hypo gonadal men may have symptoms including:

  • Decreased bone mineral density
  • Decreased muscle mass and strength
  • Increased obesity
  • Depressed mood
  • Decreased sexual function
  • Decreased hematopoiesis
  • Decreased cognitive function
  • Increased cardiovascular disease risk

So we recommend that aging men above the age of 50 years with any of the above symptoms or even without it to check at least their total or free testosterone levels as:

  • Late-onset hypogonadism is a true clinical entity and contributes to morbidity and mortality in the aging male
  • Restoration of physiological testosterone serum levels may delay or prevent the consequences of late-onset hypogonadism
  • There is no consistent association between testosterone serum levels and risk of prostate disease in aging men
  • In view of the above, testosterone therapy may contribute to the maintenance and/or improvement of quality of life in aging men
