Emerging Testosterone Market
In the August 18th issue of Time Magazine, Time highlights the emerging testosterone market across the nation. While not exactly approved by the FDA, men are flocking to testosterone clinics in growing numbers to recapture their youth and manhood. Testosterone levels typically peak in a man’s 20’s and fall 1% – 2% each year after. Some of the symptoms of Low-T may include:
- Diminished Sex Drive
- Hair Loss
- Reduced Muscle Mass
- Low Sperm Count
- Frail Bones
Spending on Testosterone Therapy Skyrockets
Spending on testosterone therapy has gone up 2,800% since 2009, projections continue to climb with yearly U.S. sales expected to be $3.8 billion in 2018.
While the Time article focuses too much on an entrepreneur who has opened 49 testosterone clinics in 11 states, it also highlights the “foggy science” behind the studies that testosterone therapy may lead to heart attacks and strokes. Time states that, “No matter what you think about testosterone therapy, some scientist somewhere has data to back you up.”
