Low testosterone affects 13 million men in the U.S. (2/22/13)

THE BRONX - Doctors in The Bronx say they are seeing an increase in men coming in with symptoms of low testosterone.

"A lot of patients actually feel like they're shadows of their former selves," says St. Barnabas urologist Dr. Sherwin Zargaroff.

The condition, known as Low T, affects 13 million men across the U.S. Often times Low T is a side effect of other issues like obesity and diabetes.

"They might only be treated for a specific aspect of their complaint, for erectile dysfunction, or for energy with vitamin B-12 shots, not really realizing they have low testosterone," says Zargaroff

The condition can be treated a number of ways, including through gels applied to the skin and pills. Zargaroff says most treatments are covered by insurance.
