What should you know about low testosterone?

ANSWER

Testosterone is a hormone made by the testicles. It's responsible for the proper development of male sexual characteristics. Testosterone is also important for maintaining muscle bulk, adequate levels of red blood cells, bone growth, a sense of well-being, and sexual function.

Inadequate production of testosterone is not a common cause of erectile dysfunction. But when ED does happen because of decreased testosterone production, testosterone replacement therapy may improve the problem.
