In Reply: Dr Dobs indicated in her Editorial1 that both of our study groups received physiologic
testosterone replacement therapy (thus, there was no true "exercise alone"
arm). In this regard, the study referred to by Dr Romeyn and Mr Gunn apparently
also allowed physiologic testosterone replacement. Nevertheless, we await
the full report of the study by Romeyn and Gunn with interest.
