What is Testosterone >














Testosterone is the hormone responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics. The way hormones function is that they send chemical messengers that trigger necessary changes in the body. Females also produce testosterone, usually in smaller amounts.


Testosterone is a type of androgen produced primarily by the testicles in cells called the Leydig cells. In men, testosterone is thought to regulate several functions alongside sperm production.


These include:

Sex drive

Bone mass

Fat distribution

 Muscle size and strength

Red blood cell production

Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome (TDS) / Hypogonadism >

Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome, or Hypogonadism, is a condition in which a man’s body does not produce sufficient testosterone, the primary male hormone. This condition generally affects older men, but younger patients can also be affected for a variety of reasons.


TDS is more prevalent in men with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia and obesity.
