Testosterone deficiency is an increasingly common problem with an aging and increasingly overweight population. This together with the increasing focus on the treatment of erectile dysfunction has seen an increase in the prescription of testosterone treatment. Increasingly patients are referred from primary care to a variety of specialists including urologists, diabetologists and endocrinologists.
The clinical cases presented within this module are tailored specifically for Specialist Doctors, and are based around the diagnostic synthesis, investigation and management of testosterone deficiency.
