Abstract :

A study was conducted to examine the safety and efficacy of testosterone treatment in older men who have limitations in mobility and also determine if testosterone supplementation increased muscle mass and strength in healthy older men. The application of a testosterone gel was observed to be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular adverse events in population of older men with limitations in mobility and a high prevalence of chronic disease.
