Testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT), endogenous androgens, are responsible for normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of secondary sex characteristics.  Male hypogonadism results from insufficient secretion of testosterone and is characterized by low serum testosterone concentrations. Symptoms associated with male hypogonadism include decreased sexual desire with or without impotence, fatigue and loss of energy, mood depression, regression of secondary sexual characteristics, and osteoporosis. Hypogonadism is a risk factor for osteoporosis in men.(1)

About Testim
Testim is a proprietary, clear, topical gel containing 1% testosterone, the same type of hormone that is produced by the human body. When applied once-daily to the upper arms and shoulders, clinical studies have shown that Testim helps restore and maintain testosterone levels. Once Testim is absorbed through the skin, it enters the bloodstream and helps return testosterone to normal levels.

Important Safety Information
Testim has not been clinically evaluated in males under 18 years of age. Virilization has been reported in children who were secondarily exposed to testosterone gel. Children should avoid contact with unwashed or unclothed application sites in men using testosterone gel. Healthcare providers should advise patients to strictly adhere to recommended instructions for use.

Androgens are contraindicated in men with carcinoma of the breast or known or suspected carcinoma of the prostate. Testim is not indicated for use in women, has not been evaluated for use in women, and must not be used in women.
