Low Testosterone (Low-T) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
What is the outlook (prognosis) for a person with low testosterone?
In adult males, the outlook for a patient with low-T may range from good to fair; depending on the person's response to treatment and their age (older patients may not respond as well to treatment). Those patients diagnosed and treated late in the disease process may suffer muscle loss and osteoporosis.
The prognosis for women is less clear; until a treatment protocol and/or drug is approved by the FDA, testosterone treatments will depend on individually designed off-label or experimental protocols for each female and her doctor(s).
