Abstract:  Male hypogonadism is a condition that is receiving increasing medical scrutiny, resulting in research producing results favorable to the consideration of maintaining physiological levels of testosterone. As healthcare professionals interested in the health and welfare of a significant portion of the population, surely compounding pharmacists are interested in what can be done for men with this condition to help these patients improve their quality of life and long-term health. This article discusses the various ways that men’s testosterone levels can be raised and provides insight into the importance of androgen-estrogen balance.
