Mayo Clinic Reports New Guidelines for Diagnosis and Treatment of Low Testosterone

A meeting of international clinical and research experts of Testosterone Deficiency from 11 countries gathered to address the considerable degree of misinformation and confusion regarding this topic. The goal of the meeting was to determine if consensus could be reached on the basis of the highest-quality available evidence. Nine resolutions were unanimously approved as 9 Guidelines for Diagnosis and Treatment of Low Testosterone.

  1. Testosterone Deficiency (TD) is a well-established, clinically significant medical condition that negatively affects male sexuality, reproduction, general health, and quality of life
  2. Symptoms and signs of TD occur as a result of low levels of Testosterone (T) and may benefit from treatment regardless of whether there is an identified underlying etiology
  3. TD is a global public health concern
  4. T therapy for men with TD is effective, rational, and evidence-based
  5. There is no T concentration threshold that reliably distinguishes those who will respond to treatment from those who will not
  6. There is no scientific basis for any age-specific recommendations against the use of T therapy in men
  7. The evidence does not support increased risks of cardiovascular events with T therapy
  8. The evidence does not support increased risk of prostate cancer with T therapy
  9. The evidence supports a major research initiative to explore possible benefits of T therapy for cardio metabolic disease, including diabetes
