Medical professionals have been discussing whether testosterone treatment can actually reduce depressive symptoms in men for many years. A recent meta-analysis attempts to draw a clearer picture.
Depression is a major global concern. Per year, major depressive disorder affects an estimated 16.1 million adults in the United States alone.
The World Health Organization (WHO) describe depression as “the leading cause of ill health and disability worldwide.”
There are drugs available to manage depressive symptoms, but they do not work for everyone. In fact, a significant percentage of people do not experience long-term relief, even after trying multiple drugs. Existing depression therapies only work for a subset of the population. For this reason, it is vital to understand whether testosterone might help in treatment-resistant cases.
