What is Androgel (Testogel)?
Androgel contains testosterone, a male sex hormone. This hormone gives men their sexual characteristics such as a deep voice, facial hair and muscle mass, but also has a major impact on libido and sexual performance. A testosterone deficiency can cause symptoms. Androgel is absorbed through the skin into the blood and supplements the testosterone level, reducing these symptoms or even making them disappear.
What is this medication used for?
Androgel (Testogel) is intended for men who suffer from testosterone deficiency. The male hormone testosterone is produced by the testes (testicles) and adrenal glands. As age progresses, the production of the hormone lowers. In particular, men over 40 years old can experience symptoms such as:
- Reduced sex drive;
- Erectile dysfunction;
- Lethargy and fatigue;
- Mood swings, depression;
- Reduced muscle strength;
- Increase of the abdominal fat;
- Sleep problems.
These symptoms will be reduced by supplementing the shortage in testosterone.
