Testosterone, The Therapy for Real Gentlemen
By Thierry Hertoghe, MD.
This handbook is entirely dedicated to testosterone therapy. Why did I decide to focus on this hormone in particular? Because testosterone is one of the most valuable medical treatments in medicine. Adequate testosterone levels are critically important for men to keep high energy levels, a good mood, sharp mental capacities, and, thus, stable professional performance. Testosterone also keeps men’s hearts and arteries working well, their muscles toned and strong, maintains low fat storage, and it is indispensable for reproduction, sexual pleasure, and performance.
Testosterone, The Therapy for Real Gentlemen, is designed to increase the physician’s skills in testosterone treatment. Teaching the reader efficacy and safety in applying testosterone treatment is the main aim of the book.
Testosterone therapy, the handbook for physicians is an innovative book, based on Dr Hertoghe’s vast experience that tells physicians what they need to know about testosterone to administer it to men.
