Testosterone replacement offers men the opportunity to regain some of the vigor of their youth. Done while closely monitored, it is a relatively low-risk proposition that has many benefits, including boosting cognition, muscle mass, and bone density while decreasing abdominal fat. Restoration of a eugonadal state can restore well-being and in crease compliance with other aspects of health care. While there is a need for large-scale clinical trials, data from such studies would not be available to guide treatment for several years. Until that time, patients can continue to be treated safely with the current recommendations and formulations that are available.
