Low Testosterone? Don't Blame Your Meds


Although many HIV-positive men experience reduced testosterone production, drop-offs in hormone production are not related to antiretroviral treatment, as had been suspected, researchers announced at the 15th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections.

The prime risk factor, they report, was increasing age.
