Testosterone levels decline not only due to disease or certain drugs but gradually with age. Testosterone effects are more clearly demonstrable in males than in females, but are equally important to both sexes. It is not only responsible for sex drive and the prevention of osteoporosis but testosterone is an important modulator of cerebral functions. Thus it is essential for well-being, including vigor and energy, and it is suggested that attention, memory, and spatial ability are key cognitive functions affected by testosterone. There is strong evidence that low testosterone levels may be a risk factor for depression and cognitive decline.
