Testosterone is synthesized by both males and females. Male sex hormones (androgens) include testosterone. Androgens aid sex organ development and other gender-linked traits. Increase in androgen levels causes increased body hair growth which may be indicative of PCOS in women. Low testosterone affects over 25% men in India and is caused by unhealthy lifestyle, including smoking, consuming alcohol and junk food, high stress levels etc. Testosterone tests can also be used to monitor the health of transgenders.
