Description: Testosterone has important role in maintaining bone strength, muscle mass and energy level. In women, testosterone is responsible for growth and development of sexual characteristics, facial and body hair, increased sexual drive and sperm production.

Low testosterone levels can result in conditions like hair loss, reduced muscle mass, hot flashes, depression and increased breast size. High testosterone levels have been linked with aggressive behavior, acne, low sperm count, liver disease and heart muscle damage.
