Topic: Testosterone Deficiency in Young Men by Ty Vincent MD
Sex, Lies and Hormones - Cleveland, OH Sept. 20-23, 2012
Testosterone deficiency has become known as an increasingly common problem among middle aged and older men. The risks of metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, premature aging and death associated with testosterone deficiency are recently demonstrated in the literature. Young men are ignored as being at risk for testosterone deficiency in spite of epidemiological research showing a steady decline in average testosterone levels for men of all ages. Older teens and men in their twenties are being diagnosed with hypogonadism at a growing rate; and the causes of this are not yet clear. Young men present with testosterone deficiency differently than middle aged or older men, but the appropriate treatment options appear to be the same. The American Urological Society states that only about ten percent of the middle aged and older hypogonad men ever receive hormone replacement; this discrepancy is far worse in the younger age groups because of the serious knowledge and awareness gap among our medical providers.
