Andropause, male menopause occurring in men as they age, testicular disease, and pituitary gland diseases are the usual culprits to a lower testosterone level. The male testosterone hormone is responsible for the development of sperm, a healthy sex drive, erectile function, and other prostate and reproductive needs. This hormone also controls in part, the skin, kidneys, liver, skeleton, central nervous system, and bone marrow.
Testosterone, also known as androgen, is manufactured in the testicles and is the most essential hormone for the growth and development of the sex organs and sexual characteristics know in men. Gonadotrophins, which are manufactured in the pituitary gland controls the amount of testosterone produced.
Symptoms of andropause can include erectile dysfunction, weight gain, depression, weakening of bones, decreased amount of sperm, and fatigue.
Androgen Replacement Therapy (ART) is the replacement of the natural hormone testosterone when the levels fall within an unacceptable level due to age or after the surgical removal of the testicles, also known as castration. Hypogonadism or eunuchoidism is a decreased function of the testicles which is due to testicular disease or a decrease of gonadotrophin, which again, is produced in the pituitary gland.
Testabol Propionate injections include Testosterone Propionate, the active ingredient. This is an ester of the natural hormone testosterone, which is usually prescribed by a physician when it is determined that the patient may benefit from ART treatment.
