Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone in the human body, the amount
of testosterone in a man's system helps maintain specific sexual characteristics.
As people age, it is natural for hormone levels to vary, and many men
experience symptoms associated with low testosterone, which is also referred
to as low T. To help counteract the occurrence of low testosterone, doctors
sometimes prescribe various products to help rebalance the hormone levels
in the body. One of the most common forms of testosterone treatments are
topical testosterone gels.

While gels can provide relief from low testosterone symptoms, that relief
can come at a price, including in the form of side effects. AndroGel®
is one of the prescription testosterone gels that are commonly given to
men to help readjust hormone levels in the body. A number of side effects
have been associated with this prescription in both primary consumers
and in people who have secondary interactions with the gel. Women and
children are particularly susceptible to complications from testosterone gels.
