Limitations of use: Safety and efficacy in men with age-related hypogonadism (or late-onset hypogonadism) have not been established (manufacturer's labeling). However, the Endocrine Society recommends offering testosterone therapy to patients with symptoms of testosterone deficiency and consistently and unequivocally low morning testosterone concentrations. In males >65 years of age, treatment should only be initiated on an individual basis and after consultation with the patient regarding risks and benefits (ES [Bhasin 2018]).
