Testosterone reduces fat and increases muscle mass in non-obese men aged ≥55 years

Aging is associated with a reduction in testosterone levels in the blood. This reduction causes a number of symptoms, one of which is losing muscle mass.

This small, well-designed 12-month study looked at the effect of the testosterone patch ( the testosterone patch is not available in South Africa) on body composition and hormones in 60 men aged ≥55 years who were healthy and not obese, and who had low-to-normal testosterone levels and typical testosterone deficiency symptoms.
