Falling Levels of Testosterone in the Elderly (Low TestLate-onset hypogonadism)

Majid Ali, M.D.

Blood testosterone levels fall progressively with age. A large number of men aged >60 years have serum testosterone levels that are below the lower limits of young adult men aged 20–30 years. This age-related change has been designated as late-onset hypogonadism (LOH). In many, but not all, elderly individuals, it is associated with significant quality of life issues and adversely affect the function of multiple organ systems.

When administered by experienced physicians, testosterone supplementation therapy in LOH is generally safe and effective.
