Friday, September 15: 1:45PM - 2:45PM
 
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

Young men to not present the same as older men, and frequently go undiagnosed. The differences will be discussed, as well as a suggested diagnostic approach. Environmental causes for this condition will be discussed, with published scientific data as support. A clinical approach to treatment and testosterone replacement therapy will be presented, with case examples as illustration.
