l forgot to mention in my previous message that when l was diagnosed with osteoporosis 2 yrs ago l was 55. My doctor's jaw dropped when he saw the dexiscan and said he'd never heard of a man my age with the disease. As l said, the only positive test result showed low testosterone -- everything else was normal and there's no family history. We briefly discussed testosterone supplements but l declined, being concerned about side effects and also because my doctor seemed completely unsure as to whether or not testosterone was the cause anyway. Has anyone heard of low testosterone levels over an extended period of time causing osteop. and has anyone had any experience with taking testosterone supplements?? thanx, jerry
