Abstract:  Male hypogonadism is a common condition widely associated with the aging process. Understanding of this condition is continuing to grow as new information is available. Pharmacists are in a very unique position to work with patients and physicians in achieving better diagnosis and treatment plans for the hundreds of thousands of men in the U.S. who are hypogonadal. This article discusses various methods that can be employed to restore testosterone in men and the varying expectations associated with each treatment method.
