Does Testosterone Help with Erectile Dysfunction?
Oct 18, 2011
In a recent study, testosterone supplementation failed to improve mild to moderate erectile dysfunction among elderly men, even though testosterone levels were generally improved as a result of testosterone supplementation.
Men in the study undertook the Sexual Health Inventory for Men (SHIM) which is a generally accepted method of testing the level of sexual health. Scores generally showed no differences if the men in the study were treated with testosterone 25 mg a day (AndroGel), testosterone 50 mg a day, or placebo, said Lauren W. Roth, MD, from the University of Colorado in Denver.
