This interactive episode designed for family physicians will explore testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS). TDS is a clinical and biochemical syndrome associated with advancing male age and characterized by deficient testicular production of testosterone. It affects multiple organ systems and can result in substantial health consequences. It is expected that prevalence rates of TDS will rise along with life expectancy. Available data suggest that appropriate screening for and diagnosis of TDS remains suboptimal in Canada. Our faculty will review evidence-based practice guidelines to determine the appropriate TDS patient for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Comments and questions from the audience are strongly encouraged and will be addressed throughout the presentation.
This episode is part of a live CME web series developed for Canadian family physicians, running from March 14 to May 30, 2017. Interested in the rest of the series? Visit www.imedicus.ca.
