Clinical Question:
Is testosterone supplementation effective and safe for androgen decline in aging males?

Bottom-line:
In older men^ testosterone increases some muscle strength by 7 percent^ with moderate improvements in erectile function and libido. There also appears to be an increase of adverse events^ particularly cardiovascular in those with higher risk. Many results are inconsistent^ at high risk of bias^ and difficult to quantify in real world application.
