The majority of men that suffer from low testosterone are over the age of 40. Testosterone production tends to decrease as part of the normal aging process. Naturally decreased testosterone levels will not negatively affect men unless the levels fall well below normal.

Often times the negative side effects of low testosterone can be negated with the help of testosterone replacement therapy in Tucson, AZ. It does not matter if low testosterone is part of the natural aging process, testosterone replacement therapy may be an option.
