Society calls on Guardian to retract misleading article on testosterone replacement therapy

10 Sep 2019

The Society have adopted this open letter from Dr Richard Quinton, Dr Channa Jayasena and Dr Ahmed Al-Sharefi, as our official response to a misleading article currently published on the Guardian website.

We call on the Guardian to retract this article pending much needed revisions. The current text is written and presented in an irresponsible manner that is misleading to the reader, and potentially exploitative of men concerned about their health.

The Society is committed to helping promote accurate and responsible reporting of endocrinology-related topics in the media, so we have backed this position and call on the Guardian to take appropriate action to remedy this.
