At the weekly FM meeting the PRFM team explored the symptoms associated with male hormone dysfunction, how to measure it, and how to safely address it.

However, there is so much more than simply replacing testosterone. Addressing the entire brain-gonadal axis requires a deeper dive into each patient.

Beyond the underlying disease, treatments like opioids, antidepressants, antihypertensives other commonly prescribed medications alter brain chemistry that can further affect hormonal function.
